Samsung Max gives Opera's smartest browser an encore

Samsung Max gives Opera's smartest browser an encore

Samsung has introduced a brand new free app for Android called Samsung Max that is aimed at providing enhanced privacy features and reducing mobile data usage.

Similar to Opera Max, Samsung Max will help users cut back on their monthly data usage while also ensuring their online connection is as secure as can be. You can turn on the Premium feature to save the Data by compressing the images, videos, music files and web pages. Samsung Max supports the latest iteration of Samsung's unique and easy-to-use features, "Data Saving Mode" and 'Privacy Protection.' Samsung Max is replacing Opera Max - one of the largest mobile virtual private networks (VPNs) in the world - and now, its two key features are accessible to millions of more Samsung users.

As the name suggests, Data Saving Mode is all about helping you use less data and potentially save money with your wireless carrier bill. Besides, it also lets users control which apps can consume data in the background and which ones cannot. However, these features aren't only restricted to Wi-Fi networks, but are available on mobile networks as well.

Samsung Max builds upon popular features from Samsung's "Make for India" initiative, created to provide locally relevant and beneficial software and hardware. In the same vein, there is Samsung Max' data-savings cloud access to make data usage efficient and secure from third-party services.

Samsung Max will monitor the data an app uses to highlight those that are consuming the most bandwidth.

While the Samsung Max by default serves ads, you can choose whether to view ads inside the app or on the lock screen only while your device is plugged in and charging. Over time, Opera Max began to focus on security as well, making it into a handy little browser to have on your device.

That said, those who already have Opera Max installed on their Samsung smartphones will have it upgraded to Samsung Max automatically.

Opera Max will make the switch to Samsung Max today, and while Samsung plans to pre-load it on phones like the Galaxy A and Galaxy J in emerging markets, everyone using a different Samsung device will be able to download it from the Google Play Store [download] or the Galaxy App Store.
