Well, it's a great option, especially for those who need space, but it falls short in several aspects, such as: I can't comment or even open the comments on posts (only on the reels), it also requires patience because for each action you have to wait a while for the screen to load, as if you were on the internet, there are no animations either, which makes it a bit dull, it's as if it were isolated from other applications and people, even in the notes.

I like the lite version of Instagram. It feels very simple. But it is very basic version of Instagram and some of the features are not there yet. There are bugs and I believe they will fix it in the future updates. The loading is little slow but it can run in slow internet connection. Well I'm glad there is a lite version for Instagram and I really like it

I noticed that videos posted on Instagram Lite (either the reels or videos on the main thread) cannot be paused, stopped or scrolled to the desired time or part to continue watching if one doesn't want to start watching the video from the beginning. This feature wastes data because you must watch all videos from the beginning till end and if you can't do that, coming back later to continue from where one stops, you'll have to start watching from the beginning all over again ☹️ Neither download.
