I've used both and opera mini's main plus is its much faster and lighter as it compresses data, where as mobile doesn't.
However mini is a great browser, but I always feel somewhat restricted with it. On one side I use there is a chat room, and in mini, although it loads, it doesn't resize to be of any use, where as mobile loads the room, resizes it and you can scroll around to view the whole page.
I guess it just depends on your browsing needs, for slightly more functionality, I'd go for mobile, but for a quick easy page/size browser just use mini.
