We’re on a roll at Opera. The all-new Opera Mini has been well received all over the world. It was great to see Opera Mini among the top 3 apps in Google Play in so many countries. And, it’s all thanks to you and your continual support and feedback, which has helped us revamp our lean, mean machine into this cool new avatar. While nothing can beat the loyalty of Opera lovers, here’s some more awesome news that will give you even more reasons to stick with your favorite browser.
Tests by Cigniti have proven that Opera Mini helps you save more data, money and battery life than any other browser. (Oh yeah!)
Cigniti’s research has shown that Opera Mini consumes 14% less battery and 89% less data, compared to other mobile browsers. The tests evaluated the performance of Opera Mini against other leading mobile browsers such as Google Chrome, UC browser, CM browser and UC Mini.
Expand your data pack
Data usage is something we all worry about. You spend all day browsing on social networks, e-com portals, video sites and what not. No wonder your data packs get exhausted in no time! With Opera Mini, though, you’ll be consuming nearly 90% less data than with other mobile browsers. In other words, with Opera Mini, you can browse 9-times more websites, compared to other browsers.
Save that cash for other things
It can be scary waiting for that monthly mobile bill to arrive. All that chilling online comes at a price, doesn’t it? And, if we have overstepped on those budget limits, it means we have to cut down on the other good things in life (like that awesome new bag or those sport tickets).
As the results show, if you are on the pay-as-you-use data plan, for every 1 GB of data used, browsing using other browsers on an average will cost users between Rs. 1,465 to 1,369, while using Opera Mini costs only Rs. 130. That means Opera Mini users can save upto Rs 1,330 every month while browsing(*1).
Smarten up your smartphone battery
Smartphones are fantastic, but they’d be even better if they had a smart battery as well! Sure, there are power banks on the market, but they can be a bit bulky to carry around all the time. If only there were another way. Well, it turns out that having a smart browser can make all the difference to your smartphone’s battery life.
According to the study, Opera Mini consumes 14% less battery than other mobile browsers. So, you can surf longer without worrying about the charge.
So, the next time someone asks you why you choose Opera Mini over other browsers, share these stats and point them towards a download, so they can see for themselves!
