How To Turn An Ubuntu Phone Into A PC

[Use PC Convergence For Easy Usage]

Ubuntu is one of those operating systems that has always claimed to be user friendly, when it comes to making tweaks to it, or using it according to your personal preferences.

These tweaks involve a host of features that are based on which hardware the user is using the operating system on, and/or which hardware they would rather use it as.

What we are referring to is the PC Convergence feature built into most Ubuntu mobiles, that allow users to turn their smartphone into full fledged computers.

It is important to note that this feature is no the same as Screen Sharing, which only involves sharing the existing smartphone screen to another device.

Instead, this feature completely transforms the operating system itself, until the point that it’s hard to tell whether you are actually using a computer or not.

In order to activate and use this feature, follow these simple steps:

  1. Make sure your smartphone is running Update 11 or later.
  2. Make sure the device (TV, Monitor) you want to project the smartphone on, supports “Miracast Standards”.
  3. If not, buy a “Miracast HDMI Dongle”.
  4. Connect a wireless mouse and keyboard to the smartphone.
  5. Open “Settings”.
  6. Scroll down to “Brightness & Display”.
  7. Find the adapter you want to connect you.
  8. Connect to the adapter.
  9. Your smartphone screen will now be shared with the secondary display.
  10. Your smartphone will now feature the PC look, as well as features.

With these simple steps, you will be able to convert your Ubuntu smartphone into an Ubuntu PC.
