You bought an Apple device for fancy graphics and high-power video. But, your data plan didn't suddenly get bigger and your network didn't magically get faster just because you bought a nice piece of tech.
Opera Mini crunches down the size of the websites you visit. It compresses images, video and text, making sites lighter. So, stop caring about roaming fees. Quit being frustrated with slow-loading pages. We want to be sure that you connect to the web instantly and access sites super-fast without paying any extra coin.

Get up to 90% data savings. Opera Mini's data-savings modes are perfect for getting fast-loading pages on slow connections. Take Opera Mini with you when you travel and save money by using less mobile data.
Enjoy more video. Watch videos when you want on your mobile device without depleting your data plan. Turn on video boost in the data-savings menu to prevent buffering and stalling.
View your favorites with one tap. Stay up to date with the content that matters most to you right on the browser's start page with Speed Dial. Add pages by tapping the + icon.
Explore new things. Find the best, new articles from your fields of interest with the Discover feature. You'll never be bored again.
Look your best. Opera Mini has a completely new look and you can choose between different themes.
Never lose your place. Multi-task and flip between pages with the tab gallery. Find, open and close tabs with a flick of your thumb.
Don't worry, your secrets are safe. Keep your history and passwords out of sight with private tabs. They remove any trace of the websites you visit.
Make QR codes useful again. QR codes finally make sense when they can be read inside the browser. Ditch your QR-code app; it probably doesn't handle videos or music anyway.
Opera Mini makes sure you stay connected, gets you the fastest content, and can help save you some cash. We're working hard to bring you the best web experience on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch – no matter where you go.

Somewhere in the upgrades, the devs decided to make the iOS Opera browser something that was good for the iPhone, but not the ipad. It's now terrible. I'm not able to zoom in on pages so everything on my ipad 4 is tiny. Also, the pages are displayed as if it's for mobile units, treating the ipad larger screens as little iPhones. Sorry Opera. You lost me on this one. There's better browsers out there.
I've noticed it's slower to load up and start compared to previous versions. Web pages load up again if the app is closed and reopened, never did that before. And it's not as responsive too at times. I do like that added feature of swiping up from the Tabs to open another one although occasionally I end up bringing up the iPhone settings. It's good and still the browser of choice for me because I like how it compresses data and speeds up loading. But yeah, issues with responsiveness and the occasional slow down/freeze up are bothersome.
Great...saves a ton of data!
Comment on the new update: seems to be a little faster. The "keep the search terms in the address bar" feature is nice until you realize it doesn't work when you go to page 2+ of results (or in Images, News, etc.)! Also the swipe for new tab feature is interesting but I'd actually prefer to disable it as you accidentally hit it scrolling...but these are little things; good job in the grand scheme of things!
Old review: If you're amazed at how much data your web browser uses at the end of the month, you'll want to download the new Opera. I haven't used Opera for ages, but the new Turbo feature works just as advertised in optimizing videos. You can see how much data you've saved just by clicking the "O" button--no more guessing! Has all the same features like most browsers like Speed Dial etc (actually think Opera came out with it first).
One suggestion I might have is to make the Turbo feature more obvious by have an option to add a banner asking to switch to it, if you're in Mini mode, if a video's detected. I would also get rid of the Speed Dial button since it is data destructive by automatically clearing what web page you're currently on. I would recommend it be moved to just when you open a new tab or focus the address bar, as in Safari.
So far 1/2-way through the month and saved 500 mb, with only 300 mb used! Thanks Opera!
