Max plus data savings

  • I have Opera Max running and the Opera browsers with data savings enabled. Opera Max shows the Opera browsers amongst the apps that I have saved data on, by using Opera Max.

    So if Opera browsers save data and then Opera Max saves additional data for the browsers, is the data saving doubled?

    I was actually surprised to see the browsers in Max's list of app savings. If the browser data is already compressed via Opera's server, shouldn't Max find nothing to compress further?

    Or how does it work? I'm very curious.

  • Now Max is telling me that Opera for a Android used data and no data was saved. I've been doing similar sort of browsing now compared to when I first posted, where Max said it saved data on Opera for Android.

    The functionality seems inconsistent and I'm becoming skeptical about the information that Max is reporting back to me. Can anyone clarify how the Opera data saving products function when used together?
