Opera Mobile for Android Released – Review and Performance Benchmark
Benchmark & Review
As Opera mobile comes with great rendering capabilities, I did a quick benchmark to compare it with stock Android web browser. I started with Acid Test Opera Mobile scored 100 / 100 while stock browser scored 93/100.
To test its HTML5 capabilities i used HTML5 Test, Opera mobile scores 72/ 300 which is very low as compared to default web browser’s 176/300 score.
Overall experience was ok but not that great. It crashed after few seconds when I ran it for the first time. It takes 20.03 MB space on phone storage and when moved to SD card it still takes 13.6 MB on phone storage. Pinch to zoom also seems to be buggy some times it doesn’t work when screen is in landscape mode. For now I’ll stick with default web browser and wait for its improved version.
