New PhoneArena design: we want your feedback!

New PhoneArena design: we want your feedback!
Hello everyone,

As many of you have already discovered, we just launched a brand new PhoneArena design! Right now, it's available to all users visiting PhoneArena from a phone. Our new look for desktop and tablets is coming at a later time, as we want to fully make sure it delivers the best experience possible.

Today, we're launching a new visual design which keeps all PhoneArena functionality and presents it in a modern and beautiful layout. Images are bigger and higher-res, the fonts have been selected to be legible and easy on the eyes, and components like menus and widgets have been reworked from the ground up to look and work better. It's a complete overhaul spanning the article and news section, our specification pages, as well as our in-depth reviews.

With this redesign, we're hoping that PhoneArena will not only look better, but that user experience as a whole will be greatly improved as well. Please feel free to browse around and explore the new look and feel of the website.

We want to know what you think!

We've been working hard to get this new design just right, and now we'd love to hear what you have to say about it! Good, bad, we'll take it all. The team will greatly appreciate it if you share your opinion of the new appearance with a comment under this post. What do you like about it? Is there anything that you think could be better? We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments!

Happy new design!
PhoneArena Team

Better now. Just need to fix the reviews. Less stuff, less score. No matter BRAND.

It looks nicer, but I've always used the desktop version on my phone anyway, so it makes little difference to me.

Noticed that I'm getting notifications even if someone else posts new comment. I should be getting notifications only if someone replies to my comment.

Well, I like the comment section on this site, you get to see all the replies to one comment accordingly without clicking on every comment to see more and what was he/she was replying for.

It would be Nice when opening one of the Articles, the Page is loaded to fit the Article in Full View instead of the Screen Sharing Screen Space with the Ads on the right. If people want to see the Ads, all they would have to do is just swipe left to see the Ads on the right. People open the Article to See and Read the Article, not the Ads.

Yes, it is a nice clean change. Too many ads though. Just as many ads as real stories, where most aren't even real articles. Just fluff pieces. But it is a nice look overall. Good show!!!

Well, they need to earn for a living just like us so we have to understand their situation. Its a give and take situation, we read articles and they earn also. I just have 1 request for the PA team though. Try to be fair with other brands.

The word clean come to mind. It's a big yes and much appreciated from me. A lot easier to navigate.

The article typeface are huge and too much "in your face". I like the old chaos columns back.
