Opera Browser is easy to use browser and does not consume much of your RAM. These features attract most mobile phone users. So, if you also want to download Opera Browser for your Android device then open the play store and search for “Opera Browser”. Open the first option and click on install. But if you are downloading it for your iPhones or iPads then open the App Store and search for “Opera Touch Web Browser”. Once the app appears on the screen click on “Get”.

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).
