Why Use Opera Mini

Since I was a Nokia loyalist I learned to use opera mini browser to save data charges. It was already installed on the phone. I used Nokia opera mini, "SMART Mobile Internet" and consumed 12mb maximum per day (surfing all day) for three years. I was online most of the time without spending that much and ZERO internet cost since October 2014 because of in the Philippines until my old Nokia crashed December. Now I tried to install opera mini on my iPhone 5S (GLOBE locked) and noticed the default buttons on Speed Dial are SMART Free Internet, Google+, Gmail, Google Search, Wikipedia, Bookmarks and + (blank). I still don't know how I can save more with GLOBE Mobile Internet. Unlike SMART network there was OPERA299 promo -- one month unlimited surfing via opera mini. If I only have money I'd buy Windows phone or even a second hand Nokia for my Vmobile M-Power SIM (Smart network). My friend said she has no idea that we can save data charges using opera. Really? Visit the web and read! Oh I just tried surfing from my cousin's local Cherry Mobile S700 cellphone opera mini using SMART network because I want to buy a cheap android phone but grrrrr I lost my patience! It's an android but too slow. I don't know how much that cellphone is. Maybe only $10. Haha! PEACE I read that in some countries opera mini doesn't work well. Maybe it's just because their network does not support it or not compatible on the device. Just my ten cents guess!

It has been years since I used Opera for browsing. But when I was still using my old Nokia 6300, I use it especially when I log in to my Facebook account. My friend even installed this opera mini browser that allows you to surf any site for free! At that time, there are no free promo from Smart, Globe or Sun yet since that was way back 2012 or 2013 I think.

I actually use Opera Mini because of its economical promos. In fact, you can already surf the internet for just fifteen pesos a day. That is the rate here in the Philippines. On the other hand, I would prefer wifi of course.

I had opera mini before in my previous phone but now I don't have it because I already have so many applications in my cellphone.

Heheheh if you really want the best you have to buy the expensive but sure one, but you have to be careful still to the brand name. even though it is very expensive still it is not worth it if it was manufactured by unknown brands. God bless.
