Difference between Opera mini for Android and Opera for Android?

  • Sorry for this newbie question:

    But what is the difference between

    • Opera mini browser for Android
      and

    • Opera browser for Android

    ?

  • Opera for Android is a full browser and you get the pages from their servers. Opera Mini is not a full browser and it depends on Opera servers to get the pages.

    When you request a page in Opera Mini, Opera servers get the page, compact it and send it to the phone so you can save up to 90% of data traffic.

    Be aware, that's at the cost of web page compatibility, design fidelity, functionality, etc.
