The new design sucks
Please give more emphasis to the News section. The sections around it have same size fonts and these should be smaller. More empty space between sections to really contain them and not look it's all one thing.
Place more space between sections. It's too crowded. Maybe move the news section back to the right side, and give it a different background to make it more prominent.
There's no clear focus on where to look because it's so crowded, every section looks the same , one tends to be drawn to the pictures. Everything is on top of the other. Even on phone description's pages this happened again. I tend to look at the pictures of the other related phones instead of focusing in the info I wanted to see, the description.
Otherwise, the look is good. clean, refreshing. You're on the right path, just need some adjustments.
What the... This looks terrible. Bring back the old design.
Is there anyway to use the old version? Like a setting or something?
What was wrong with the old version, it was so easy to navigate, it's just not as open . . if it ain't broke. . why fix it? I love looking at GSM for all the latest on mobile devices!
New desktop version look horrible on my tablet, have to change to mobile version. Prefer the old desktop version.
Was so used to gsmarena older version that hardly a day passed when I didn't open the site. The new version came as a shocker and was I kind of flummoxed and disappointed at first at the need to change. The previous version was just as fine. But I'm sure as I navitgate through the intricacies it would be just as fine or even better. After all If team gsm arena has decided to change the format there must be something better in it. Please keep the good work you help immensely lots of people about these little gizmos called mobile phones and tablets and their accessories. Good Luck team gsmarena.
I don't like the new version of gsmarena.com
madpiyal, 11 Jul 2015First of all, aesthetically its a disaster, the rows of the left section, news section and the... moreliked.............
i can't stand it.....
at least ditch that left sidebar....
For me looks not completely good. Old version was more functional(?) for me. 1st is tt dont work properly on mobile version e.g. opera mobile/mini. Next big problem is i need more time to find something. - if you look at the top of this (old) we have a blog, reviews etc. at once, atm here I have to click on the drop down menu.
Another - news, articles, all stuff was separated by a delicate gray line, that started before the title story. Now we have the title hanging in the air, then the picture combined with a white field on which it is text.
Reviews on the home page are somehow stuck together, a picture in the photo without space (you can get nystagmus). I noticed problem, why it look like that www.picoolio.net/image/V6j on FF not like that on Opera www.picoolio.net/image/V6A ?
I feel like on the old side everything was easier, better arranged, friendlier to find and browse. Many portals goes blindly on the latest fashion, rather than put on functionality, correct, comfortable layout, they are going kind of alleged modern look, even on the sides of the PC version seems to be a poor tablet version.
What you need to improve? Mobile versions, unless you are not interested in visiting eg. with Opera mini, etc. Top menu should not require a click to be opened. And the last thing is, however, a slight improvement of layout and transparency. Last issue feft / first block of the rankings took too "big" difference compared to the old version where the main, central part of the web were news and reviews (unless it was meant to be). Thanks.
I agree with most the comments below... The new design is awful
Good change! I don't like when great sites change their style, just because 'boring' or 'too old design', and lose their funcionality instead... but looks like gsmarena show us that it's possible - to make good site even better ;) I like it.
Not at ease with this new interface. Please bring the old one back. Though if you can implement the triple mobile comparison tool in the old one it would be appreciated.
Horrible idea. At least give people an option to "go back to the old style".
that change is very hard to swallow considering how spece sheets of phones hadnt changed since ages and I aliasy remembered tchem like that.. :( The main page will take some getting used to since everything is rearranged, so I don't want to say I don't like it so far.. Although for now it feels like information overload.
new design is not a big deal for me. but it's too GREY!!! - hurt my eyes..
On cm, dolphin, chrome site work well.
On stock vanilla android browser it doesn't. Elongated pictures, text going out of its zone,...
The new site need better separation, bit more bold to highlight titles.
After so many years, I think it's about time GSMArena deveped an app of its own. The site can still be visited using any browser, but having a GSMArena app could be an added advantage.
To be honest I liked the older desing better. It was much cleared, one look at a page was enough to pick new important messages. Now I agree with many other opinions that the new design is not clear, messy.
