Much of the work of bringing Windows 10 for ARM to smartphones have been done on the Lumia 950 XL, but this is of course extremely dated hardware.
Booting the OS on a more modern device such as the Oneplus 6t is much more interesting, but leaves us with the same issue of the OS being inappropriate for a small screen.
This is of course where MobileShell comes in, a new shell for Windows 10 being developed by ADeltaX, which brings elements of Windows Mobile to Windows 10 tablet mode.
Recently developer NTAuthority posted a picture of the shell running on a hacked OnePlus 6t and it looks pretty good, though it clearly needs some adjustment for the 6t’s micro-notch.

Currently supported devices for WoA includes the OnePlus 6t and the Google Pixel 3 XL.
While Windows 10 on Phones is very much a hack at present, such work does give one hope that eventually users will be able to choose to run Windows on their most-used device and have a good experience.
