I've never closed any GSM tabs before. Then yesterday I refreshed the page and poof everything changed! It's quite hard to use at first but now I think it is way better than before. Thank you GSM Arena!
And also, I would just fire the person who was responsible for new site. If it was a third party company I would cancel a contract and claim all the money back. Absolutely seriously.
Before (with old design) I would open gsmarena many times a day just to check for new information, tests and reviews. Now I just don't want to open it because it looks annoying and not pleasant to eyes. It is also much difficult to get oriented in new site. I'd strongly suggest to get back to old design, but just tweak it a little and make some really useful changes ( fonts, functionality, etc). There was absolutely no need for such tremendous changes which in fact made everything less friendly, pleasant and visually overloaded.
Old Layout better, 11 Jul 2015GSMArena do you even realize the number of people who use Opera Mini to browse your site? Thi... moreThat's the problem....GSMARENA is ignoring their fans comments about the new interface which is not simple and nice...please bring back the OLD and original interface we all love!
Please revert to the old design or just make minor changes to the old design. The news and the blog corners were visually user friendlier and clearer. Now, the page also does not load properly on my mobile phone anymore. It just tries endlessly to reload.

This new design is not at all compatible with Opera Mini. It sucks on the Desktop too.
The new voting system and the phone specification screen is great but everything else absolutely sucks.
gsmarena..please change the new interface to the old one..its boring and seriously not nice.
Horrible design ..... Just check all the comments in here..... GSMARENA should be stupid to overlook the 90% userbase critizing the new design . Please go back to old design ...for petes sake .
I see I'm not the only to complain about this first. Why the F are you making me login with f or gplus?
The site looks awesome if you are in non information data world, your website is used purely for reading reviews and find info about phones. Look at 9to5... Look at Engadget ....long list of things but it does what it needs to do...you made the website like we are hanging around here and having conversations with other users about life and stuff and then maybe we check a new phone out. It's not a social network so stop making it look like one. Thanks for the new voting system but can you p,ease let the users vote about your website?
It's all messed up. Way too much happening with no clarity.
The older version was fine and needed a little tweaking, font change, font size altered, colours and the site needs to be made responsive.
Change is good, but this is a change in the wrong direction. You will scare away your readers.
It took sometime for me to get used to of this new design, But now I have started to enjoy it.
Some of the features are really good.
With time more & more people will start liking it.
The new design sucks. This new update is extremely bad. Even Opera Mini is not able to display the page properly. I will stop using GSMARENA from now on.
Go to hell. DBAG WEB DEVELOPERS!!
honestly new design looks horrible in my opinion. I want back the classic gsmarena look with its simple fast and intuitive interface.
Functional wise it works. New features and "flat" design is the way forward...
But to be honest, there wasn't anything wrong with the old layout. Information was laid out evenly and the snippet of information was nice. When I did want to read an article, i like that the contents are framed with just the right amount of white spaces
This new layout though is really distracting. Almost everything is pushed to the right leaving vast amount of white space to the left. On top of that the front page is showing less information while still managing to look cluttery. Why?
If you really looking to expand, improve on your video content.
BTW a little step forward, differentiate the blog and news column more. Looks like the webpage haven't fully loaded yet.
if it goes like this i think everyday fewer people would visit the website
since getting news i is getting hard in new design
i myself prefer to change my news database if GSMARENA keeps going in this version
i hate scrolling for 10 seconds to get to the end of home page
home screen should be simple and in one page,not 4 5 pages laying down there
You can tell that this was designed by some amateur. "Bringing important content in front of your eyes" means making everything grey. Seriously put some colour on this site. It's hard to distinguish anything. Everything is overly subtle. Learn some design, this is a lousy look and its straining peoples eyes to read anything.
