This month, Opera Max has achieved a 57% saving in mobile browsing for me. For overall internet usage in all apps and services, the savings is 17%.
From the statistics, Opera Max didn’t compress any internet data that passed through the following apps:
As a rule, Opera Max doesn’t touch any secure data, for obvious reasons.
Different people will get different results with Opera Max. Clearly, if you do a lot of web browsing in comparison to other activities, you will get the best savings.
A 17% overall savings translates to N170 in cash if you spend N1,000 monthly on mobile internet. If I spend N2,000, that’s a saving of N340. Is it worth it? Finance-savvy people will tell you that any savings is a good thing, because it all adds up eventually.
If you have been complaining of data bills on Android, Opera Max is the next best thing to BlackBerry-like data compression that is available for you. It is still in test phase, but yes; go get Opera Max.
