How do I add DDG as my search engine in Opera? I'm using it on Android if that makes any difference.

Visit https://duckduckgo.com, tap and hold the search box, select "Add search engine."
There doesn't appear to be any way to set it as the default (at least from the UI).

Thanks. :) It's a step closer if nothing else. I'll see if it sticks as the selected engine or if that reverts to Google. I certainly hope not.

@bizzare is correct, there's currently no way to make any search engine other than G the default in Opera Mobile (Android).

One other way to add DDG to Opera is to add it to the Speed Dial. Just go to ddg.gg, then click on the + icon on the left of the address bar and select Add To Speed Dial.

I actually wrote a workaround for this a couple months ago:
