the new design is really a mess
the home page is sooooo mixed, crowded and not well viewed
I vote with the rest of the comments bring back the old design or give us the option to use the old design (really guys it not nice to use or follow news on it)
Please revert to the "old" design.
I found it to be very nice.
The new design i slightly confusing.
Last night I checked GSMArena on iphone and thought that it loaded mobile version - I looked for desktop version but couldn't find it so just got annoyed and closed the page. Today I went online on my mac (safari) and Ohhh Noooo !
It's been changed, TO THIS ?
I have been a regular reader for as long as I remember, and loved the site simplicity, the looks and everything about it. And agree with someone who posted that maybe the font could have been changed and other features in the background but this.. That is a perfectly laid out/designed website ruined. Really messy, it's pretty sad.
It was my favourite site but the visual change (the mess) is too much to be able to get used to.
If you care about your fans GSMArena please revert to previous design. Look at all the negative feedback, it should tell you something.
We (readers) respect your hard work, but that is not the design for GSMArena.
It feels like someone without a clue from Microsoft had a touch on this and just ruined the looks :) Really, it's that bad.
Why such a drastic change.. It's not too late yet, even if it takes a week or two change it back.
New design is generally ok, but I don't like main page layout, please put news and blog to left side, or give some settings to user change that... Need some fixes...
Please revert back to old design with minor tweaks.. The new design is just overloaded and not suitable for gsmarena
Really Gsmarena what's the need for change it was perfect b4 now its a pain For eyes to visit I even shifted to internet from opera mini I think phone arena is better now!!!
this design is very confusing, the older version was very good and user friendly. who's idea was that ?
First of all, aesthetically its a disaster, the rows of the left section, news section and the blog section does not match, creating a clutter and an unpleasant first look. In every other site usually the other news or things of interest are put on the right side of the webpage but not in here, its counter intuitive. The review page looks silly, the actual article is not in the center of the page, only a complete maniac can come up with that.
Now on to the Specification page, it used to be a clean representation of the internals, not anymore, the content of the page are not the the star of the page, its the other things around that catch your eyes (the reviews, big pictures of other phones,related device, popular device...), you simply cannot concentrate on the specifications, and to compensate that a big banner of summery is given on your face stating the same thing that's written just beneath it!!!!
At last, I find the previous way of depicting the the phone finder and the list of brands was much more appropriate, now its just another big tool of distractions (ugly as hell too).
I don't think just to put more emphasis on the blog section one should ruin the whole website, it has left less space for the crucial reviews section, an iconic website has lost its purity and charm just to do that. Hope you guys revert to the original looks and tweak here n there to make that perfect, cause this one as a base is just horrible.
at first I don't like new design.... but after 2nd 3rd visit, I like it. still miss d old simple layout on opera mini. anyway Goodluck.
Eurgh, the new layout feels disorganized as hell, the titles aren't clear enough, everything feels jumbled up...but worst of all, the text itself is such a pain to read now.
PLEASE revert back to your old format!
majority says no to new design and inteface ....and gsmarena does not care...i'm switching to other mobile news channel
