  • Another neat review, Jerry. I was using a 9.2 version of UC Browser Mini Smooth for almost two years. Somehow my old phone resisted to upgrade it to the next version and kept it until I bought a new device. Well, this 10.9.0 build you reviewed above has so many improvements compared to 9.2, which you have already listed. I'm glad it's still free.

  • Hello, Jerry. Nice to see how you nailed this topic. I'm using UC Mini Smooth for almost a year and I had no troubles with it except only once, when it crashed during browsing Amazon. Anyway, that's a lot less then it happened with my stock browser (I'm currently using Galaxy S10). I keep Firefox for Android on my phone too as an extra, but this one is my favorite.

  • I would call it the best browser for older devices. I'm not a power user, I use my device mostly for calling other people, making occasional photos and browsing websites. I have no plans on upgrading my device, but modern sites are getting 'heavier' each day which makes browsing on my smartphone laggy. Apps like UC Browser Smooth allow me to compress my traffic and save me from buying a new device for now. You may call it a crude decision but I'm okay with that.

  • Thanks, Jerry! That's the stuff I was looking for and I'm glad you mentioned a text mode in this uc browser review. I've been using Opera Mini for ages but it became too slow for my needs. Now I have a nice replacement for it. Thanks again.
