Getting a mobile version of the site up should be ur first and foremost priority. We love gsmarena, but on GPRS, edge connection s it can take a while to load.
Hei GSMArena Team
Congrats for the new look. Overall it looks good... a few suggestions...
1) The condensed font for the section heads and the headlines of the articles are little less impactful than the old approach
2) Top link and logo bar is kinda unfriendly because of the condensed font and grey shade. A darker color like the old one or shade of red from the logo will be a great choice.. WILL BE STRIKING
3) On the home page, the headers 'NEWS' 'REVIEWS' and 'BLOGS' are lost because of the background band colour... again red would be striking and clearly distinguish the headers
Rest everything is absolutely fine and great improvement. Im a gsmarena user for nearly 7 yrs... thats why I took some effort to suggest you guys.
By the way, I myself a creative director in one of the global advertising agency network in India.
Love it. Although the old versio had a more kind of at home feeling. I like the new feautures.
The new look is great.... it looks fantastic on my mobile!!!
Well done GSMarena!
Everything seems okay and the site really looks modern and hip. Good job guys! :)
New color scheme is Good, but somehow i got lost with new layout. Bring back the old layout.
umm.. The first three or four latest news at the homescreen is blocked by the ad. The ad is from indonesia. Can you fix it?
All of the design is lovable except the top most area with children like logo.red and silver color combination is not understandable. its theme must be changed to some more beautiful and sophisticated one. rest is good.
the old look was much.....far far better than the new one........the new one really sux...
cmon.....bring out d old theme.....with the original GSMArena Logo.....
it is true that the new look made the front page simple and nice. One thing annoys me is the ad on the news side bar. There is always one ad that could expand if visitors hover the mouse pointer on it. But after the change occurs, the ad and the news summary overlap each other and that condition make the ad extending itself although the mouse pointer is hovering on the news summary, not on the ad. Please fix this problem.
Structural changes, site speed, organisation of things:
My 2 cents: bring back the old design/logo/color scheme but keep the new layouts and structure intact. Who wouldn't want that +2!?
Ritzie, 29 Jul 2011Hi GSMArena Team, Thank you very much for a job well done. May I kindly ask in which bro... moreyes, i am agree with you on this.. the ad cannot be closed (only with ad block) or if i click the news link that i can escape the problem... this is so annoying... =(
old design was way mush better. You shouls make a poll, between readers, which design is better...
