Description

Your Android browser should do more than just display web pages. Opera for Android now has a built-in news feed that helps you find more content you’ll love - it also saves data by blocking ads and compressing images.

Top features

Smart news feed: Swipe through a range of news channels within the browser, subscribe to your favorite channels, and save stories to read later.

Sleek new look: Our new, lightweight design makes it easier to find what you need and do what you came online to do.

Block ads: Opera’s integrated ad blocker helps your pages load faster and saves your data for the content you’re actually interested in.

Add to home screen: Add any website directly to your device's home screen to access it even faster. Sites like Facebook can even send you push notifications, just like the app.

Other highlights

Save data: Switch to data-savings mode to load pages faster than ever on slow networks. Powered by our famous compression technology, the Opera browser works hard to save loads of data without breaking your browsing experience.

Browse privately: Use private tabs to go incognito anywhere on the Internet without leaving a trace on your device.

Read comfortably on any screen: With Opera, you can force zoom on any page, making it easier to read. We even make sure the text fits nicely on your screen with automatic text wrap.

When will we get bookmarks backup (to SD card, and not cloud)? Been loving this Android browser for a long time and asking for bookmarks export just as long, but but despite don't listen. So time to bail. 3/18 No longer access to previous bookmarks backup. Still no way to sort bookmark folders. Primitive browser on Galaxy S8+ 7.0 Full Review

It's an okay browser but many files that you try to download freeze before reaching 100% and videos don't completely load. The news was initially an okay idea but I ended up turning the news feed completely off due to the unwanted and overwhelming articles from that garbage site Quora that I tried to disable. Quora isn't even a news site! It's a more annoying version of Yahoo Answers. Full Review

Version 45.1 - the address bar cannot be easily retrieved anymore. Previously it would reappear when scrolling slightly. Now it seems you have to scroll way way back to the top of the page, or scroll really fast to make it appear. Please fix for 5 stars. Full Review

I'm using Opera since 1998. Lots of changes were made, including engine. Still a big fan. I'd like to see the option to save files directly to clouds instead of device, i.e. download files to OneDrive or GDrive. Full Review

Almost five. Desktop version is the browser of my choice since it became freeware :D For the Android version, the possibility to add extensions would be a high asset. For example, Adguard and Reader view are my prefs. They beat the browser built-in capabilities... Full Review

Still my favourite browser when it works. But lately it's become very buggy and unstable. Crashes frequently, eventually requiring a fresh install. Just upgraded my phone from S7 Edge to Galaxy s9+ and it does the exact same thing. Crashes while searching in Google. Weird. Full Review

Hello admin I am very old fan of Opera browser. In this new look it seems very stunning. But i have a little issue, when ever i click some new articles it doesn't respond on first click, many times i have to click more than 5 times for a single story. Please fix this issue as soon as possible. Site opening speed is also shaky and slow. Please look in this matter too. Full Review

The last update messed up big time. After taking forever to load pages, it simply comes up black screen for most pages. Please fix it, it's my default browser and deserves 5 stars. Edited: More misery, now I can't read a news item in full... asking me to download opera news. The way this is going, I may soon have to uninstall and be done with it. No thanks for this mess up!

Just like the desktop version, this browser is speedy and very reliable compared to other browsers I have used in the past. I really love it's built in ad blocking and data saving features, it makes my everyday browsing experience so much better. This browser is truly the best and I've always been a fan of Opera. I totally recommend this to anyone who loves to browse the web. Full Review

Lacking a clear history on exit option something every major web browser has. Opera why won't you fix this? Combining history and data clearing is asinine and requires you to loose productivity and waste time re-logging into any website that you normally go to. Full Review

EDIT: 2018/03/03: •POSITIVE: Speed dial thumbnails are back to normal. Nice to be able to choose between small or large thumbnails. ****BTW: Regarding: "large mode" (where you have 4 thumbnails per row); if you tap on: "search or enter address", it shows 5 of the most often used speed dials in stead of 4. Their size have not changed accordingly? ****BTW: I would suggest to let people change this page to show 2/3/4 rows of their most often used speed dial icons. AT LEAST: 2x5 speed dial thumbnails in "normal mode" or 2x4 in "large mode." There is plenty of room for it. • Good to see that favicons are supported again for speed dial thumbnails instead of only one letter. •NEGATIVE: I have more than 200 speed dial icons. Drag & Drop of speed dial thumbnails is still laggy. You still can not fluently drag & drop speed dial thumbnails from the bottom of the page all the way to the top of the speed dial page (e.g. into folders). It constantly "stutters." When you have many thumbnails that you want to order neatly, this becomes a time consuming process. Basically, you are forced to re-arrange your speed dial icons on your desktop and then sync. •NEGATIVE: Option to turn off: "Trending searches" is not there. It is not useful for those not living in the USA/English speaking country. I'm not interested to know that people are searching for info about some Hollywood couple who are getting a divorce. •NEGATIVE: There is an issue with Google (images). When you search for something using Google, then click "images", and then scroll down and scroll up *very fast* the search entry/ search entry bar + "Google" letters disappear. You can not change your search entry any longer. So when doing a Google image search, you have to *slowly* scroll back up or else the text entry disappears. Annoying. •NEGATIVE: Black theme missing. •NEGATIVE: It would be helpful to see if you are on a bookmarked page or not. There is no icon (e.g. a star) that let's you know. It would be nice to easily edit the bookmark from there. •NEGATIVE: the drag & drop method to delete or edit speed dial thumbnails is not user friendly, especially if they are in a folder.

Have been using the desktop version happily for more than a decade on various OS's, like the mobile version as well. Reason: OPERA is intuitive to use, very fast, has a lot of useful features (that really work), is well maintained and also has good reviews in independent magazines. Job well done, please continue the good work. Full Review
