OK, it loads fast, but I'm using AdBlock (dial-up, so I'm saving on time) and there's too many white spaces all around the page now... :-/
I hope you receive money for the change, because if you pay a dime, you're been robbed.
thanks GSMArena for your hard work & the design looks better and feels more tech
OMG!! OMFG, NOOOOO! This cant be happening :O My favorite site turned into an eye-hurting cheap porn blog! =/ Seriously, the old classy looks were amazing! This new one sucks, the colors are just too vivid and hurts eyes. Cant differentiate between ADs and news, reviews and blog's pictures. Also I use a 23" monitor so while scrolling down the page seems to tear, so not-smooth, unlike before. It was so sober and easy readable and smooth. The design and colors are just not working, its soo normal and boring. Classy looks were awesome, sober looks which stood out, kinda of a signature, Most useful and nothing show-off. But now....yuck!
I hate it to the core :( Specially because I love this site and visit it almost everyday, now I'm not sure if it'll be pleasing like before.
I dont like the new look,,it has very weak colours..I have looked at gsmarena sign since 2003 and it just is engrained in me..So i dont like new look of site..sorry..
i'm graphics designer and always hating when good usability sites are getting new facelift which they don't need. I liked the old one a lot, nothing bad there, it has nice colours whick worked perfectly together, old one stand out, was easy to read etc.
This new has too small of amount colours, basically it's gray and little bit red (boring), hard to read hart to find the navigation, things floating in the air. White ads everywhere and everything looks very messy not clean at all. This look like ads site which has no point, this new site doesn't pop out everything look like same mass on this site. Dont understand the point of this new look, SORRY. hope many will like it.
I think with the new look this site lost the focus and what this site has been.
I don't think that new visitors are going to enjoy this new look, they go away very fast, because the site is allover the place.
I like the new logo but hate the look. Blue instead of gray would have worked. I hope these gaps get filled in soon too.
It's Nice but logo should get more attractive find it so..so other section like phone Compare, it should have more than phone 2 Compare. Over all like the refresh look all the best....:)
Logo looks nice. Right below the logo, the ad. takes way too attention that makes the logo look small and it would be nice to switch the contents(HTC sensation and Nokia E6 reviews) on the right of the ad. to the left.
I didn't like it at all
Bad step GSMArena
tma72, 27 Jul 2011nothing special.... first look - ugly... :(I agree with that. I liked the old logo and old web style much more as they were simpler and more eye friendly.
to be honest i find this to be more cumbersome than sleek, and the redesign was an excuse to fit more adspace..... the old one definitely had its own style and now this one is too busy and looks like every other overwhelming major tech site
