Thank you for the great articles and completeness of your mobile phone assessments. Perthaps to this can be added more reception and clarity reporting. I travel the world extensively to isolated places and use a larger well known brand, and a well known keyboard brand, with a third name brand for back ups. Yes, believe me you need to have a few carriers (and a pile of SIM cards) any one time to get recpetion and to communicate sometimes. What a difference there is between carriers, countries and brands. There is definitely a difference between mobile phone reception and clarity issues just between brands, which you might not see in the USA. To me reception, clarity, and practical access to emails etc, is far more important than anything else. Ability to hold onto a signal at distance away from a cell tower sorts out the mobile phones that look great on paper and get good global reviews only to find they are not that great in the field. These devices take great photos and videos, play a game if your life is that boring, but at the end of the day, they have to excel at reception and clarity. Personally, that is critical for me, and quad cores, different software, more ram, etc, does not make a better mobile phone if on balance its reception and clarity does not stand up to reality.

GSMarena please use guide in which are ideal in these tests because most people can't understand these technical terms. For example in Linpack tests,its says higher is better..something like that...just a suggestion.thanks

sorry but in your test, the technical terms you use is hardly understandable by general public.

I absolutely love this feature... Was wondering why this was never there before, but could you have:
v.poor, poor, below average, average, good, v.good, excellent and incredible.
in those... and in mouse-overs (or in brackets) have the values... because some of these are meaningless to the average user who just wants to see how good they are... besides, if they want to know why you've scored them that, they could simply follow the link.

Sorry not sure what those dB figures mean - whether 76dB for example is good or not? Maybe a pop up explanation upon mouse hover.
