Thank you GSMArena..you're the best.
I hope you include a loudspeaker testing and how much it's loud and clear.
go 4 these video reviews but please dont abandon your lenthy textual reviews because they're what separates u from other sites
Great work! I understand that you want to squeeze in as much info as possible but as others have said, the narrator could slow down just a little to get that balance just right. Also, it being a minute or two longer wouldn't take away from the nature of being a punchy video review. Good choice with the English accent, American narrators can too easily come off as dull and dim witted. Also, mix it up between a male and female narrator.
Overall: Fantastic!! You guys are the cream of the crop when it comes to mobile phone reporting and I'm glad that this method of review will result in more people being realising it!
I like the idea of a video review to supplement the excellent written reviews. The samples were good. However, the reviewer spoke way too fast and the background music drowned out his voice at times. Also there was not enough personalisation of the video (who is the reviewer, we don't know his name or see him). I suggest the background music should be significantly softer and the reviewer should speak slower and pause in between sentences or paragraphs.
Keep up the good work, and looking forward to more video reviews.
I would like each review to start with the MAIN function of a smartphone, and that is - CALLING:
- What is the call quality?
- How does the dial pad look?
- How easy is it to add a new contact to address book?
- How does address book look: preset fields, custom fields, add caller photo, custom ringtones?
- What about video calls?
- Can it be configured for IP, Skype, GTalk calls?
- How easy is it to switch between different phone modes: silent, airplane, normal, etc?
- How do Calendar, To-do lists, event, etc, look and work?
And then, you can talk about other things like camera, browser, games, music player, and other options.
It would be nice if you had a list of main features that you would apply to each phone exactly in the same order. And at the end, you can add extra stuff.
I think this review was rather short. In my opinion, 10 min. would be a good time to hit and demonstrate main points.
And please, talk a little bit slower :-)
Good addition, but too fast like running in a race. If male voice has more “base” it may increase clarity and overall hearing experience. As you know English is not a native language many visitors.
I really like the idea and the videos are great! All important points are in the videos and the presentation is impeccable! It´s a very good complement (yes, complement; I still like those detailed full leght written reviews XD). Resuming, best review videos I´ve ever seen! Congratulations GSMarena :)
this was pretty good...it really does put the review in a nutshell.
Obviously it couldnt be as extensive so I wouldnt mind....just read the actual review...DUH...lol
Good job GSMArena (Y)
this is a great idea to video review i will says you always do a full video review too
These are indeed helpful.However, i found the commentary to be rushed and faster than needed.Also you could have a focus on in-depth review of the Features themselves, as looks of hte phone can be skipped for this being a video review.
All that being said, it does provide a good overview.Better than reading the 6 page review :-)
it is easy to understand any function and has good impact. i like video review. by the way how much time it takes text and video review? please post e6 video review asap. God bless u GSMARENA & keep up good work.
Please remove the background music during the review.. it gets anoying when we watch more than one review... Also please be a bit more slow pce when reviewing..there is no train to catch...
The vedio review is really a great feature for your site.. In the above videos the reviewer spearks at a really fast pace.He should be a bit slower... just my opinion
Awsme stuffz by u guys, jst to mention smthng hre
mak it longer, atleast 10min.
feature both da hardware n software section.
N if possible keep posting both da video n article both...
The idea of video review is great, but i think it should be longer (at least 10 min) so you can present all the functions of the phones.
Great job GSM Arena!
id suggest both....coz more info and depth can be given in the article and the video basically brushing over the main (standing out) features and criticism
Just great, these video's!
The only point, the guy is talking a bit fast and unclear..
Hi guys..could you help me out, i bought this unit, it says here, well everywhere that it has a built in 16GB memory..when i checked mine, why is it only 11.5GB of total space?
