Bug Description

In init we call isMobile() twice and that can be expensive. For me it meant calling Mobile_Detect::match 524 times rather than 262 times when we call it once and remember it's answer.

In fact checking if device is mobile only every needs to be done one per session and not once per page load - as the device is not likely to change mid stream (unless dev testing) so we don't want prod sites testing for it on every page/block/artefact load.

summary: - Mobile detect is checking for UA string twice
+ Mobile detect is being called too many times

Reducing the number of calls to Mobile_Detect->isMobile() (Bug #1427031)

We seem to be calling it on every page load - so for a page with lots
of blocks it means a lot of calls.

When really we should call it once when a user first arrives as they
won't be switching devices during their session.
