2. Choose your data-savings option: High or Extreme mode

Opera Mini for Android  is a mobile browser that brings your favorite stuff from the web on your phone faster without burning a hole in your pocketbook. Opera’s data-savings technology has optimized the download manager on Opera Mini. If you’re downloading files while connected to a good Wi-Fi network, then high data-savings mode is your best friend. If your Wi-Fi is slow or if you’re downloading using mobile data, extreme-savings mode can help speed up your downloads and download more efficiently.
