Here are a few changes we’re making to SamMobile 5.0 based on your feedback

We took SamMobile 5.0 live last week, and since then, many of our readers have sent in feedback over the new design. We have heard you loud and clear and realize that a few changes are in order to make SamMobile 5.0 better than it currently is. Today, we want to bring you an update on the changes we have made to the homepage for both desktop and mobile.

A major complaint our readers have had is that it’s not so easy to get to the latest news stories and coverage, so we’re making our Latest News category the first thing you will see every time you visit SamMobile.com. On desktop, we will still have the carousel for top stories, but if you visit on a mobile device, you will be greeted by the latest news stories. The Firmware News category is now located a couple of mouse scrolls below the news and reviews categories, with a Firmware Magazine widget in between for you to be able to quickly get information on firmware updates released by Samsung over the last seven days.

We also have other modifications in the pipeline, like an indicator for comments on every article on the homepage. We are also fixing bugs as quickly as we can, and we apologize for the problems that have slipped through on SamMobile 5.0. It seems we didn’t completely grasp how big and complex SamMobile has become, but we’re doing everything we can to get things back to normal and make SamMobile 5.0 the best iteration of the website yet.

You can see what the homepage will look once we have made the necessary changes in the picture below (this is only a sketch, so please ignore the inaccuracies with text or images in the picture). Let us know what you think, and keep sending us your feedback and reporting bugs that you come across by leaving a comment and through our contact page.

Hate to say it but it needs improvement. Overall it’s not so bad, but the firmware page design with all those blue and white bars is a total mess, looks like something a 10 year old would design. Fonts are generally far too big even for bigger devices like my Note8.

I’ve tried to like 5.0 but I can’t. The mobile version has fonts that are too big; is still hiding news articles but prioritising old posts (you promised to change this by the end of last week); logging in doesn’t always work (and when it does often shows you as logged out); search in the firmware section often returns no or the wrong results; items are out of alignment horizontally or are different sizes etc etc I could go on for ages but from a design point of view it’s a mess. And you’ve now stopped engaging with people. Look,… Read more »

IMO everything is too big (fonts, contents) on a Note. The homepage is not dense enough.

Much better now on mobile. Still not perfect on desktop IMHO, but it could be me just needing the time to get used to it.

If it isn’t broken.. Don’t fix it. Please go back to the old design, this one is really not good.

I have to say that I don’t like your new website. I am using mobile version, and it is one big mess right now.
I don’t care about popular topics and this is the first thing I see here. When I am changing for New topic I can see only 3 latest. Then I have to go to another site to see all new topics. Change Popular for New (at least 10 new topics) and banner on the top for Headlines and I will be happy.
