The comments are much better on the new website, everything else however is a lot worse than it should be for "professional" websites, so much wasted space, poorly thought layout that mostly annoys and confuses the user, the uninspired colors, it's a massive step back compared to the old "tired" website, "fresh" doesn't always mean better.
Bring back the old interface. This one is not good at all. This is a much worse interface.
i prefer old design. That was glorious "gsmarena" we all knew and loved. This one to be honest took me by surprise.. its just not on "gsmarena"s level, to say at least.
I did not like the new website the moment i say it.. because my mind was so used to the old website which i was familiar with for years. But now after few days, i think the change is good. People tend to oppose change at first my nature but after getting used to it they will oppose to the new website design at that time, including me :P :)
now using this new design since sometime but still miss the old design which was less difficult to figure
the news section is more important than the first look and the reviews section which was placed very well in the old design. thats all
To be honest, I am a gadget freak and I come to GSMA for the fantastic reviews of the phones than the news of them. But due to everyday work I can't visit the site everyday. So I come here once, maybe twice a week.
Earlier I would come and read three, maybe four reviews at once. But now I find it difficult to find more than a few reviews at a glance. I request you to put them in a way so that more reviews are visible.
Next proposition is that, now-a-days gadgets (read phones) are emerging in various ways. There are also gears (in Samsung's language) or side gadgets which people are interested in. I request GSMA to review those as well. The reason for this request is very simple - I trust and like the unbiased review of GSMA and I want all my gadget queries to be answered in a single place.
GSMA has always been my favorite site and will be, as long as I find it easy to browse, true to the truth and cover more phone gadgets. Wishing you all the best. Ciao.
A loyal visitor of your site since 2007
sorry but i personally like the old site better. it created less confusion and it was easier to navigate. the old site was very user-friendly.
I tried to comment here, it failed, and now I have to type in again trying to remember what I said
exactly my point though, I was trying to say how much I liked the comments section in Blog, and how many great an educational discussions took place in there
for one, how many things I did learn from the great mod, Eske Rohn
I hoped that you used Disqus for the main site as well, but you went the opposite way and cut it off from the blog
I have tried this commenting system, didn't like it at all
btw, new site looks better in my opinion, and new options look and work great. maybe some rearranging in specs highlights can make it better, but it's good already
This version is not good at all. The older one was simple and clean. I get disappointed everytime I open this site now.
old UI was better and the worse things in this news UI are postions of ads just sucks my minds and....its looks like its only an ad sites plz change it
I understand the updating thing... but changing so much the website and for worst????
i think you guys should make a pool to your viewrs/subscribers/members so you can see that the majority of us prefer the old one or several stuff of this one erased and put back as it was...
Too much complicated. Why do you guys even need something new? You don't have to do it. Old site was very easy to use. This is look like copy of some wordpress site.
I like new things but this isn't good at all. If you want to bring new features bring it with a good and useful design please.
We loved an followed GsmArena because it was best in bussiness. This isn't best.
