    It looks good. It looks unique. Give it some time and it will probably get popular! Maybe you could make some sub-niches about other things?

    It looks nice. I would consider putting a slider/scroller on the landing page above the posts with some calls to action.

    The design is excellent.
    Based on the top of the page, the bottommost section seems as though it's not good enough for the website, that could do with being improved. Adding navigation there may rectify this.

    Wow, Nice design. I like your site.
    I would add a few more hover effects to the design to increase usability, make the banner icons a little less busy. Overall good job.

    It just looks like an edited WordPress template, as said above. You pretty much lack in areas such as accessibility. Overall the site feels quite busy and organised. There's little diversity between the posts on the main page, and it's not very nice to look at on a widescreen monitor. Anyone with a big resolution is going to see a lot of empty space either side of the content. I would recommend making the site a lot more elastic, and also making the new articles a bit more separated so that clarity is a bit stronger.

    When hovering over the site links, the blue background as the button is quite distracting and unappealing. Your site is meant to be about reviews of phones and so forth, yet 3 out of 5 of your pages are just how to contact and advertise with the site. Which is nonsensical. All the last 3 tabs can be put into one page, from where you should concentrate more on the content of your site and not just how people can get to you. Nobody is going to want to get in contact with your site if it's bare. The top bar is also quite distracting and badly coded. If you want one like it I would recommend using a more subtle bar, with medium background opacity, and quite short in height. With the CSS attribute set to absolute. Overall the site lacks in presentation of what you actually do. It needs to feel more related to what your site wishes to perform, and if you're using it for blog posts about phones, then make it so that your text is in fact easy to read. I don't understand why your text on the "Top 5 smart phones" link is all in the center. You should justify it and set it to the left with proper headings.

    I advise doing a lot more research into how your site should present itself, and come back. This feels rushed and untidy.

    Edit: This was before it changed into what is now just a template.

    Site looks ok to me on a wide screen monitor. I agree with the early comment on the nav bar. 3 different options but then three which are bog standard (contact us etc). May want to look at adding to your categories and potentially add a store of some type. Buttons at the top right should be removed if they are not linking to anything but I would suggest you set up a twitter account and modify the button as twitter users love news so why not tweet out your posts ?

    dasoc, we have are currently modifying a new theme, the theme you are seeing now is currently being setup at the moment. We have a Facebook page and Twitter page which the buttons will link to soon. A store will possibly be added soon as well.

    Yes, most likely will change theme later, and will get a better one.
