What I don't get is why people just don't go use another browser if Opera Mini no longer fits their needs. There are lots of options out there like Opera for Android, Firefox, Chrome, etc.
Opera is the only one left with compression and in some countries data plans are metered and/or expensive, like Germany.

@jaron So you are passionate fans but you don't want to play the price for the services the app gives to you?
I and lot's here would pay a one time or even subscription fee if there would be an option, like millions of apps do for an ad-free version.

Ads are annoying.
More than that, internet advertising have been frequently used to deliver malware, spyware or worst, ransomeware.
It's not good enough to expect user to report bad ads or inappropirate content. It should be up to the service provider to be compliant.

Showing ads in a browser with an ad locker built-in is almost hypocrite... If Opera need their money from ads, the sites too. If Opera thinks it is acceptable to block other people's ads, block their ads should be too.

@sandroklostermann and many of you in this thread,
Thanks for all the feedback about the new Opera 44.
Regarding the ads, we are testing new ads and their formats.
I'll share your input to my team and we'll try to provide good user experience with Opera mobile browser.

@jackob11 we actually read your feedback and believe me that we would want to fix every problem our users encounter. Unfortunately we simply can't, because we don't have enough resources to fix every bug. We usually try to fix problems that affect widest group of people first.
Regarding ads your feedback is very welcome and valuable.

Opera Mini used to NOT have ads. There is NO excuse to add full screen ads to Mini. You're straight up doing what crappy companies like Cheetah Mobile is doing.

“Unless the exclusive purpose of the app is that of a lockscreen, apps may not introduce ads or features that monetize the locked display of a device.”
Opera Mini completely violates this rule of Google’s Policy. And the worst: the Opera Software knows that it violates the rule, because the Opera Mini version that I'm using is from January 2018 (this month), the latest version from the playstore: https://i.imgur.com/GsNmHRR.png and https://i.imgur.com/sud0rEc.png
1A) This lockscreen ads violation is not new, you can see it here from october, 2017: http://www.techweez.com/2017/10/06/disable-opera-mini-lockscreen-ads/
1B) When we install Opera Mini, the option “Lock screen news” is enabled by default. I tested it on my smartphone.
