This new interface is really bad, Current Rankings are screwed up and are linking to old, crap phones.
Bring back the old one... gonna remove my bookmark for now.
The new design is partially ok. The graphical improvements in terms of photo viewer and that small phone snapshot is a good idea, but the overall layout is absolutely horrible!
Placing the news in the middle reduces the focus given to it, makes it look overly cluttered and hard to read. The articles don't stand out as they used to. If you leave the changes, please scrap the left hand pane with the phone search etc. Move the news back to being on the left (we're English, we read from the left and that is where the most attention is given) and place what is currently on the left on the far right hand side.
Please for the love of all your readers

Believe me, people love simplicity. The new design is anything but simple. Too cluttered for my taste. Yes, new features are good, but not the interface

People just can't accept change. While I understand that it takes time to get used to something new, it's just plain childish for people to complain right away without even browsing through "all" the pages and appreciate the new features of the site.
For instance, didn't anyone notice that the "compare phones" feature (NOT the compare camera quality) can now do 3 phones at a time? Before, it can only do upto 2 (unless I missed something from the old comparison). Another thing, each page for a certain mobile phone now features an "at a glance" header where it displays quick facts about the phone like RAM, Battery capacity, CPU, Camera, Storage, etc? There's also a 3-stripe menu button on the upper left corner of the page to show and hide the different segments of the website to give an uncluttered look. The grey top bar where the company logo and search bar are, also hide and appear automatically as you scroll down and up, to make your browsing more immersive... and many more!
GSM Arena worked hard for the redesign of the page and these people are not asking anything in return from anyone. They are giving free info and free updates regarding the mobile industry and we are just merely consuming all these info for our own use.
So if you still think the new website sucks, I suggest you give yourself time to get used to the new site and discover things how to efficiently use it.
I still think there's no other website that can give you detailed information on all mobile phones than GSM Arena. They did a good job renovating the website.
Perhaps as with XDA you guys can offer us the choice of old & new interfaces, the individual can pick their own then. (prefer the old to the new, this is like the BBC News one, change for change sake and inferior)
Additionally your Current rankings thingy is broken, (If you click no2 'Sony' it brings up Nokia 5110... kinda says it all really)
its beautiful yaar....................i like the new version of gsmarena and i appriciate to the whole team and dont bother to some stupid users its better then older.
cmon yaar its 2015 and everything need updates then why not gsmarena
once again regards from me
Looks like some one Arabic has designed the site, putting more emphasis on right side. Please revert back to old design, it was better, more functional, simple and faster.
I usually don't post comments here, but this new design is such a step backwards that I decided to speak it out. It seems to be overcomplicated and really cramped together. I don't know, maybe us some spacing or colours to separate and differentiate content? Because right know it's a real pain to find any useful piece of information here.
Please change your design and go back to the old design. It rocks. Also please change your Designer also and the person who approved this.
