I prefer DNS66. It's as good as both, extremely simple to use and lighter than Adguard & Blokada. I'm adamant on memory consumption part when using an ad-blocker.

It's excellent at blocking in-app ads and also blocks browser ads. The latter is not a problem for me as I use Kiwi browser with uBlock extension

I like Blokada very much and I am using it atm. It's FOSS, nice, but it lacks with firewall features. Tried netguard with which you also can use a host file(GitHub Version), but often it is extreme slow.

Blokada with a firewall. This would be very nice!

I have used both Blokada and Adquard on both my cell phone and my Samsung tablet. Both have been uninstalled and I don't use either.

Now, it might be that I don't understand how to use them; but believe me I tried to learn and understand.

Keep in mind that my purpose in using them was to block game ads; not browser ads or pop-ups. I try not to use my cell phone for browsing. I find it slow and cumbersome and hard to read (for my old eyes). I could never get either Blokada or AdGuard to really do much with pop-up ads for games. So, for me, they ended up just being memory sucks and I never noticed much of a difference with them installed.

I might have to try DNS66....

Don't like system wide ad-blockers on both Windows and Android. I rather use browser extension. Adguard Content blocker in case of Android. It supports Yandex and Samsung Internet browser.
But if I had to choose I will pick Adguard, which is also free (just like Blokada) if you wanna block ads in your browser only.

You need the paid version of Adguard to block ADs on APPs.

I am using Adguard. It has a lot of options: firewall, ad-blocking (custom filters are possible), a good logbook, alternative DNS server settings, incognito mode, HTTPS filtering and a browser protection (it is not that good as an full av).

On regular times you van buy a license with discount from the official site or from other sites (I got my from gHacks Deals).

Excuse me, but I did and it still didn't really work. Maybe it does and I just was too dumb to figure it out?! All I can say is that the paid version of AdGuard was a waste for me for the purposes of blocking ads with games. (As I said, I don't care about ad-blocking for web browsers on my cell phone or tablet.)

Was DNS blocking activated? Was protection on? It may turn itself off after reboot in some situations.
