please enable users to connect with each other and your authors as well. there should be some kinda inbox or something where we can send/receive messeges. so users can share their experiences/thoughts with each other. it would be of great help especially with guys like remixfa on board. thank you.

the world will be at a worse situation if scenarios like these continue... only american residents can dictate the future of phonearena.... sounds like americans will be the only one to dictate the future of the world. r

This Site is really at its best place.
But it would make it more better if you would provide a Online Chat support with Reviwers on the board.

u need a mobile friendly version of ur website!! i find it kinda ironic that in 2012, a phone news based website is yet to have an application or a mobile version.
my 500mb plan costs me 19$ here in lebanon, and ur website sucks 1.8mb everytime i open or click one of the headlines.

The big popup that covers the screen is anoying, especially from my tablet. I can't even close it from my tablet. I have to go back and then back to the site for it to not show up.

gallito you haven't been here as long as some of us. just 2 years ago this site was apple troll heaven and the rest of us had to deal with it. the percentages of fans have changed pretty proportionately to their market position. android holds a 2 to 1 world position over iOS. expect the boards to be similar.

There are certain laws and restrictions (and taxes) required in other countries, so it makes it a lot easier to award prizes in a place where the rules are already clearly defined. There's probably other reasons too. I doubt it's just shipping.

I think you would be better if when you make a review, tell more your experience with it , also like every week make a video anwsering peoples questions and tell whats new.

I hate the fact that Phone Area is almost imposssible to read from a PHONE. Why would a site called Phone Arena not have a mobile version?

I also hate how the reviewers worship all things Apple. Not everyone has hands as tiny as yours.

1. I hate the facts that I NEEEEED to register to post this. I don't trust iphonearena.com to have my password. My advices, use DISQUSS or facebook. because i don't want 2 or 3 months latter, iphonearena said their database were hacked, and my information is gone with them.
1b. also, anyone can create fake email/account, so why would need to register???

2. i think iphonearena need to be more neutral. right now, i really feel like this is more iphonearena than neutralphoneareana. android is as good as iphone, and iphone is as good as android. don't treat iphone as good phone

They used to have no registration required. We had a lot more spam-bots and trolls filling the comments. As for login and password, if it bothers you that much, use something unique or get a new e-mail address just for it (that's what I did, hotmail and gmail are free). I use the Disqus system on Engadget and it can be a pain in the head to use sometimes. As for Facebook, I like keeping that solely for people I've physically met and interact with, not for my opinions and reactions to a cell phone site (especially because then there's more stuff clogging the news feed)

Maybe revisit some of the "Flagship" devices after the initial hype of it when it comes out. I have a Galaxy Nexus and it is the best phone I have ever had, but I doubt if you guys reviewed it today that it would still get a 9.5......(maybe an 8.75 or 9 though) or a 9 for the razr for that matter.

* Better Spelling and Grammar checking by editors.
* More accurate specs on phones. Sometimes other sites like gsmarena have a lot more details that are also in a better format to compare.
* Allow comparing 4-5 phones.
* Delete stupid comments by people just commenting to say first. Most poor comments in general seem to be from those with wrestlers as their role models...possibly an age check too as those are likely 13 year olds or 40 year olds in parents basement.

The main thing I would like to see is the site itself updated, maybe try a different layout and moving some things around, or catagorizing articles by OS or carrier. It seems scattered a bit some times, but overall I visit the site on a daily basis.

One other thing add a forum with just one subject IOS vs Android so i can clear up the comment sections of just about every article that is posted
