This was great! I only watched the Samsung Galaxy S II's, but it was soo much better than many phone reviews on YouTube already! One comment, though, and that's just to slow down a little. There was a lot of great information being said, however if it's too fast, what purpose does it serve? Also, the transitions seem a little rushed, as well. Leave the camera on the screen it's at for about two seconds after the narrator is done speaking, before he moves onto the next part of the review. Regardless, even for its first draft, this video was great and had much more quality than other video reviews. Well done!
Voice and Vocabulary was not clear, its hard to understand what he is exactly saying when you speak fast words should be clear and easy to understand.
I think having the option or addition of a video review is a great idea. Mainly because it gives that extra dimension to your excellent in depth reviews, which we depend on (Bring on the time when you can take a phone home to try for a week before you buy lol). However they would definitely need to be a little less rushed.
I think the "old" written reviews are much better.. since every thing was well divided into categories that allows you to find what you want in no time.. plus that you still need the camera/audio/screen comparison tests..
So I vote for the old excellent method.. :)
I love the thought of it, this should gather more viewers
Wow this is great but i think the videos could be a bit longer though, but does this mean that you guys will be phasing out the written reviews?
It was okay. But I suppose your detailed written phone reviews take the cake every single time when compared to other websites. Keep up the good work. And if you are doing video reviews, do mention the battery life?
it would be nice to have battery life testing as a standard part of the review
these are nice but please so not stop making written reviews,...........dont forget us with slow internet
This is just my two cents worth but i found the speed of the narration very fast. Maybe you guys could slow it down a little and increase the duration of the video.
I visit you site everyday. I think that a video review is a great idea. I suggest like some other users, put more separate videos (overview, camera, multimedia) in a review. What I like on reviews too is when I can here the loudspeaker sound of the smartphones. I hope to read more video reviews in the future.
Love it! More please!
They should not be longer than 5 min. They should have "+" and "-" points about each phone or a rating of the phone 6/10, 7/10 etc. at the end.
I think they are perfect just as they are. 4-5 minutes should be the sweet spot with video reviews. Other sites' vids take around 20 minutes just to say the exact same thing they wrote in the review. A video is supposed to communicate by getting the attention of the viewer. A longer video would be boring. Congratulations!
Hey its really good...kudos to the team..but try to reduce the narration speed as its is too fast...other wise as usual you guys rock..
Not bad.. But like some1 else seems it seems a bit like those paid reviews.. Like ur advertising the phone more than reviewing it..
What I want in any review is opinions.. Not facts.. I can find the facts of the phone on the spec sheet.. N maybe the narrater can speak more casual rather than sounding so formal.. Add some personality to it n comment on different things..
I think the video can be a bit longer too.. After all ppl who wanna read the reviews usually wanna know more about it n are interested.. Short reviews are a waste of time cz u dnt learn anything new from them..
But good job,it is actually a pretty good review.. Just keep improving.. Ur written reviews are still my favourite among all other sites.. :) n GSMArena is my fave phone website.. :))
Good. Video length is just right, and it covers the most important parts of the phone features. Yes, like others said, the speaker should speak little slower and with more clarity. I suppose with too much of information packed in a 3-min video this is expected. But I had to rewind a few times to catch some sentences. So slower talking will help
The reviews were very informative.......I think gsmarena should make a regular feature
guys u rock everywhere...pls review galaxy sl and optimus black...
also include a few more seconds in ur video to suggest alternatives in that price range..
this is actually pretty awesome, now i can just show my dad these reviews rather than looking for the stuff hes interested in
