It was equivalent to a saving to 350 million per month which translated into 2.1 billion for six months. It is fairly popular among Java based phone users (feature phone users) and it went on to save 81 percent of data costs for them and 69 percent of data costs for smartphone (68.5 percent for Android users and 62 percent for iOS users).

Opera Mini uses a data compression technology which shrinks webpages down to 10 percent of their original size which results in reduced data consumption upt0 90 percent. It results in faster webpage rendering in areas with low ranges and roaming in addition to the regular browsing.   Opera Mini is the most compatible browser that you can get in terms of the wide range of devices it is compatible with and can be used on over 3,000 phones across a wide range of platforms.
