Why exactly would you like to turn your Android phone into a laptop?
Mobile phones these days have great computing power and almost everything that you can do on a laptop, you can also do it on your mobile phone, some might even see it as a small gaming laptop after a visit to the Android Play Store. The only problem is the screen size and the keyboard. Unlike on a laptop you cannot use all of your 10 fingers to type on a mobile phone. Similarly, if you want to work on a document containing visuals and lots of text, you will have to do lots of vertical and horizontal scrolling in order to make sense of what is there on the screen and to be frank, on a mobile phone it is not possible to make sense of what is there on a screen.
