    Orbot, for what it is, is the most similar to the desktop Tor client. In fact, it has several advantages over the desktop version - it's easy to configure bridges and its VPN all from the same console (even though the VPN is in beta at this point). You can also easily configure which nodes to include or exclude. It does occasionally have security leaks, but these have improved in later versions.

    Just your way to go in case of needing to reach Tor on mobile. The others are, even if alternatives, surely not as good as this for mobile.
