This is a solid addition, and much needed. Now all the hate voting can stop! HAHA!
How come I cannot vote on the HTC Desire Z while I can on the Nokia N97 and SGS3?
Dear GSMArena Team:
Please don't get it rude, but the voting system of yours is obsolete. Since new devices are not rated by their design, performance and features, but mostly because of their "price vs. performance" scores. I think this should also be added.
Thanks in advance.

zen, 22 Nov 2012I think they have not deleted the vote data yet. I randomly checked older phones in the GSM ar... moreI went back and voted for my legendary old Motorola. Had so many great times with that phone.:-)
zen, 22 Nov 2012Yeah Jeanandroidfan. Well said and I totally agree with you.thanks mate :))
AnonD-79694, 22 Nov 2012You should't have deleted the votes of older devices. Some of them will never be voted again.I think they have not deleted the vote data yet. I randomly checked older phones in the GSM arena site from 2008 till now and the votes are still there. And yes I agree with you. It is highly unlikely that People will go back and vote for older devices.
AnonD-79694, 22 Nov 2012You should't have deleted the votes of older devices. Some of them will never be voted again.but 10 votes are kept with the same old rating!
AnonD-16334, 22 Nov 2012Bring vote up & vote down option for each comments just like blog disqus, instead of shitt... moregood idea but please please without that shitty disqus also! it takes forever to load and sometimes blocks us on 3G connections and is so so much fragmented! notifications from here and there will come which is bad!
Anonymouse, 22 Nov 2012If you care so much about editors opinion on these three characteristics just read the full re... morereview is not a rating and a phone mighty be good but its pros for example may be a plastic body or fragile screen or others so experts' reviews and rating ( together) are so much needed !
"Now U R Talkin."
Very Good Move GSMArena.
But keep this in Check.
Some methods are there to Create false voting.
That's how it should be since the beginning. I'd sugest that at least for smartphone pages there should be two comment sections, one for user opinions and reviews (preferably REAL users posting from the respective device), and one for general discussion (kind of forum for all).
You should't have deleted the votes of older devices. Some of them will never be voted again.
If you care so much about editors opinion on these three characteristics just read the full review. Also giving three 10 to one phone is really viable because some people really like their phones, so it should be allowed. As for doing reviews, I would like to see battery life for playing music. If possible, at 100% and 50% volume and with headphones. Lot of people use their phones as a music player so it should be considered.
I'd suggest expert's ratings as well, some people would prefer seeing expert's opinions than the public's which is at least 60% fanboys.
Also, I think phones that are not released or announced should not have the voting system, or the voting should be reduced to 0 once the device is actually released (or announced). Because people can't possible know what certain chipset a device has if all we have are rumors. Or a design. For example, Galaxy S III design was unknown until it's announcement in May 3. Or Galaxy S IV doesn't even have any pictures at all but people already vote it.
