Opera Mobile

Opera offers two varieties of browsers for Android: Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. For this review, we choose Opera Mobile, as it is the more featured of the two.

Users of Opera's desktop variant will feel at home with its mobile version. It comes equipped with synchronisation of bookmarks, Speed Dial, and search engines, thanks to Opera Link; it has the ability to save pages; and it has the option to use Opera's Turbo compression service that powers Opera Mini.

Opera did struggle with Wi-Fi T&C redirect pages, meaning that the stock browser was needed to get connectivity.

Existing Opera acolytes, or people needing to reduce their data usage, will find Opera a good choice.
