Learn how to download opera and install on your Android OS, iOS, and iPad OS. The opera browser is officially available in the Google Play and Apple Store.

I remember Opera being my first browser to run on featured phones and it has evolved since then. It has big competition from Google Chrome and Firefox, however, the smartphones with the least RAM still work well with Opera (Mini).
