Last week, we asked for your opinions and feedback regarding our new design and look. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great response and comments. While it may seem like we’re not listening, we are. And while we can’t take each and every one of your opinions into account, we are constantly working to make the website better. Thanks again for taking the time and showing the interest! You are what makes MakeUseOf so awesome.

On to the results! Out of 650 readers who voted, the breakdown was as follows: 10% of you think the new look is mainly good but needs some changes, 12% think some parts are nice but most aren’t, 14% are getting used to it, 23% love it, and 41% of you dislike the new look and want us to go back.

While it might look dismal, it actually means that almost 60% of you either love it, think it’s partly nice, or are getting used to it. Thank you!

Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by G P Witteveen who suggested a short video showcasing the new look for all of those who are having a hard time getting used to it. He/she get a free MakeUseOf t-shirt! Yay!

This week’s poll question is: Are You Buying A New iPhone?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

Surely you can’t have missed the much-discussed Apple event last week where two new iPhones were announced. As usual, opinions vary, and while some think the iPhone 5c and 5s are a disappointment, others are excited and can’t wait to get their hands on them. Are you one of the latter? Or maybe you’re not willing to jump on the “s” wagon again, and are waiting for the real thing in shape of the iPhone 6? Are you an avid Android user who wouldn’t touch an iPhone with a stick? All your opinions count, so make them heard!

What do you like or dislike about the new iPhones? What are your reasons for buying or not to buying them? Share your thoughts below.

    I think this constant announcement of “new” iPhones is a terrific way for Apple to make money and stay in business. I’ll stick with Android devices and avoid all the Apple frenzy… I can’t believe how well all the “hype” works and the amounts of money being spent. If you have so much extra cash, why not give some of it away to charity and skip a model or two of the iPhone? I’ll bet you won’t even miss the interim models.

    No, it’s too expensive for me to buy.

    I definately will not be buying an iPhone. Why? The answer is simple, I am not an Apple fanboy, never have and never will be! I dislike their “bumped” up prices and the fact that they have to try to patent everything in a feeble attempt to stop the consumer from buying anything else.

    I won’t be buying an iPhone. Here’s why. For a few years now, I have been using an iPod Touch for music, podcasts, audio books and various apps, and have an old prepaid phone for very occasional mobile calling. But I’m now switching to a Lumia 520 running Windows Phone 8. I have bought the phone and am just transitioning to it. The phone cost $100 and I’m adding a 32GB Micro SD card for about $35 and my carrier lets me switch my prepaid time on my old phone to the Lumia. So this lets me replace the 4th gen iPod Touch for much less than a new one from Apple and also combine my two old devices into one new one. I’ve already got my podcasts and audio books onto the Lumia and I’m moving my email accounts and adding apps now. And this phone even comes with Office. Since I used Skydrive already to store docs from Office on my PC and my Mac, now I can get at these on my phone as well.

    I don’t know why people are not appreciating apple’s effort but ,they bring whole new concept of biometrics on mobile.
