Play the way you want with this browser

Opera GX Mobile is a free mobile web browser that is specially designed for mobile gaming. A product of  Opera Software, this is the mobile version of Opera GX and offers the beloved features of the PC browser, as well as some mobile-specific ones that will benefit players while on the go.

As the world’s first mobile gaming browser, Opera GX Mobile aims to bring in the powerful tools that its PC version has to handheld devices. While the scope is limited for this platform—and some features aren’t available—this app still performs its best with the new optimizations available.

Is Opera GX on mobile?

Opera is a multi-platform Chromium-based browser first released in 1995. It became popular enough to compete against Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Brave, and other handy browsers so, by 2019, it had been given its own gaming-oriented counterpart called Opera GX. Unlike Opera, GX focuses more on features built specifically for the benefit of gamers. These include CPU, RAM, and network limiters and gaming app integrations like Twitch and Discord.

Opera GX is for desktop use while Opera GX Mobile is the gaming browser for mobile devices. They share similar features most of the time. For one, the Flow feature is available here—allowing you to sync your mobile and computer browsers via a QR code for easy media sharing. Another returning tool is the GX Corner, which is the one-tap space for access to gaming news, deals, and the like.

What’s special here, though, is its custom navigation using the Fast Action Button (FAB). This makes the interface easier for one-handed use and utilizes haptic feedback with device vibrations whenever you interact with the menu. Other cool features include a built-in ad blocker, Dark Mode, crypto-mining protection, and browser themes. However, what’s sorely missed are the option to import bookmarks and performance booster settings.

Has room to grow

All in all, Opera GX Mobile is a promising app when you compare it to its first version. It has most of the features that made Opera GX popular within the gaming community and while the scale of it has been downsized, there are still handy tools that are at your fingertips. However, some of the more popular features aren’t present here—which can be highly disappointing.

  • Retains some of the PC version’s features
  • Custom one-handed navigation with FAB
  • Built-in ad blocker and crypto-mining attempts
  • Can sync media between mobile and PC

  • No performance booster settings like network usage
