That’s Android for you…. using battery life in the background whether
you’re using the feature or not. Do yourself a favor and switch to iOS
which actually runs only what you need. Without having to set 15 things to
the “low” setting. How many ways do you need GPS to work??? Just find my
location only when i’m actually USING A GPS APP…. what a novel idea.

Lo Angus says:

Opera Mini is most likely in the Opera Turbo mode, which compresses data
using Opera’s servers. It may be not as fast, but it saves a lot of data.

Given that Opera was never really a reliable browser to begin with whether
on a console or smartphone, it still sucks.
