I have another bug with the latest build of v47.
While using the web interface for Facebook (inbox) messages, tapping in the text box to type a message does not activate the keyboard. I rolled back to v46.3 and the problem is resolved.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!

I also have a Nokia 8 but I cannot replicate your problem. I can have both Opera for Android and the Nokia camera open and running, repeatedly switch back and forth between the two and everything works just fine. No freezing or stuttering.
@miyukiwork After all those problematic versions of the last 2 years this is an excellent release. You 've managed to implement many suggestions from the community and made it aestheticaly and ergonomicaly solid. Congratulations!
I agree! Opera has been very responsive to user feedback and must be commended for that. Opera for Android has improved significantly. Things were so bad a year or two back I stuck with using v37 and tried out other mobile browsers. I'm now happy with Opera again.
I can see the early potential of Opera Touch.
I generally like the page rendering and prefer it to that of Opera for Android but it isn't perfect, some pages don't resize correctly, such as my Yahoo email and need to be sideways scrolled to read.
I get en error message when I try to enter my Facebook inbox. One of the advantages of Opera for Android was that it did not force direct you to install the Facebook Messenger app.
Although fanfare is made about "Flow" it is not something that I have a need for. Upon first use and skipping connecting to a desktop browser the app has said it will remind me again tomorrow. I hope this does not turn into an annoying spam/nag and can be totally disabled if the user wishes.
It's early days and V.1. I hope more functionality will be added as time goes on
While you're waiting for v.43 to appear on Google Play you can directly download it for manual installation from here http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/versions/
On the positive side the clickbait/spam/news feed can be disabled. Other than that it's still largely the same mess of a UI that came in after v.37
Opera please just stop what you are doing to Opera for Android and revert back to the user interface of v37. You are making an ugly mess of your browser and seem hell bent on doing so desptite constant and overwhelming user feedback.
We have a mutual best interest!
For resons best known to Opera, at device start up there are two permanently running background services for data mining and spam delivery purposes. They call it analytics and news. These services run regardless of whether you use the browser or not.
