Opera mobile(Nokia s60 version) final review.

Full Facebook too, albeit a bit cumbersome

Youtube works, just not the flash 🙂

Power Consumption

The original opera mobile beta 3 was a power hog running my battery dry in less than 10 hours, so how does this opera compare? I did some tests with Nokia energy profiler to see how much energy is being used. I did this test with UCWEB running in the background as a benchmark. The graph below is the result of the test:

key:

Light off

estimated battery time left

As you can see it is a bit moderate and fares better than beta 3. Browsing alot of heavy websites will take a toll and the battery however since continous loading and rendering might cut the figures shown on the graph in half.

    “opera 10 is the first Symbian version of opera mobile to support flash and flashlite plug-ins”

    then….

    “Opera Mobile is a modern, fully featured browser that supports most major web contents and protocols. It is one of the best of it’s class and outperforms the built in browser in everyway except for the lack of flash.”

    ummmm…am I missing something or is that a flat out contradiction?

    No there isnt a contradiction, if anything I should have explained it a bit more. The browser itself does support the plugin for flash but nokia does not allow it to access the flashite plugin that is shipped with their phones, thus flash does not work.

    I think the issue itself was a big sour point between nokia and opera when opera mobile 9.x went live, which contributed to it not being made available for nokia symbian phones.
