Differences between the UC mini and the UC browser – As mentioned earlier, the UC Mini is a lightweight version of the UC mini browser and make for easy handling and faster content viewing. It is best suited for smartphone devices having slightly lesser storage capacity. The UC mini has many functions of the UC browser as well. This includes download management which enables multiple faster downloads, data compression which is somewhat like the thin client operation, cloud system technology through which information is taken from the nearest server. Again both the browsers also However, apart from these, the UC mini has several differentiating factors as well from its parent browser. It is necessary to know some of them for the benefit of the users. The UC browser has the feature of the UC centre and this functions as the best possible route to many shortcut and features. This includes downloads, themes, tools, bookmarks. It also shows, how much data has been saved till date. This feature is not there in UC Mini. Consequently, the shortcuts are also not there. This means things like data saving is not present and so also features like feedback sharing. In the UC browser, if a user goes to the tools in the settings, there are several options like clipboard, Facebook connections, QE scanner etc. Many of these options are also there but not all. One example is the UC music which is not there in mini browser. However, those functions which are not there are more or less unimportant. Both the browsers have the download option of sending files from the smartphone device to PC or laptop but in the UC browser, the speed is marginally better. It may not make much difference overall. There is a clean file button in the UC browser. This is basically about deleting the junk files on the device. It also gives the details of the different files like APK, videos and list of unused apps. Another feature that is available in UC browser but not in UC mini is the game centre. In the game centre many daily use popular games like Candy crush and Temple Run is there. This is totally unimportant difference as all such games can be taken from any of the big or small app stores of the world. More important is to preserve the space. (Suggestion: For all devices having 2 GB RAM and 1.5 Hgz processor, it is suggested to go for UC browser. If the configurations are less than as given above, then it is always suggested to for UC Mini). Just remember that ease of using really matters and having a fast, flexible and lightweight app is beneficial at all times. The readily available web content makes a lot of difference.
