I am an Android user running Android 7.0 (Nougat) on a Wiko Sunny 2 Plus device with 4GB internal storage, most of which is taken up by pictures and WhatsApp data. I have purchased this device because I was tired of mobile phones breaking down at home due to carelessness and am now stuck with this cheap model meaning that I now cannot run several nifty apps I had purchased.
However my home computer has about 300GB internal hard drive and I was thinking that even though I cannot carry my computer around the same way as a mobile phone or use touch screen since touch is missing from the screen not use GPS or a back camera nor use the cellular network for phone and messages as it does not have a sim card, I could still download some apps such as edutainment and dictionary apps and use them there.
So, I was wondering, as a nondeveloper, what is the easiest way to download the latest Android OS to your computer, in my case Windows 7 64-bit, and run an Android emulator or full screen tablet app on my computer, so that I can still make use of my purchased apps and what not?
Also, will I be able to use the same Google account name on the emulator without running into problems of conflict with my main smartphone?
Is there an easy emulator setup for nondevelopers, app testers for instance, that does not require a download of all the tools involved?
