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.
