GSMArena's 2021 in numbers

GSMArena team, 31 December 2021

In the final moments of the year 2021 we decided to have a look back at the past 365 days and have some fun with flags numbers. We’d like you to join us and take a look at our year in numbers because these achievements are more about you, our vibrant community, than us.



This is the number of hits we’ve got on all our pages across Desktop, Mobile, and App in 2021. To put the number in perspective that’s roughly the number of hairs the total population of Monaco has. Our Specs pages got 1,076,551,103 pageviews, followed by specs comparisons (542,209,150 pages), news articles (261,913,798), and review pages (137,145,415).



That’s the number of articles we posted in 2021. In total, these articles contain 18,401,155 characters - roughly equal to 36 novels.



That’s how many in-depth reviews we posted for the last year. Their 871 pages contain 16,944,896 characters (another 34 novels in old money). The review articles also contain 25,346 images, including photos of the reviewed device and sample pictures taken with the reviewed phone. Granted, that’s probably less than the number of selfies your average teen takes in two and a half days but it's something.



That’s the number of comments we’ve got from you guys this year. You were most active on the news articles (206,554 comments). The specs pages got 149,776 comments and the reviews - 21,044 comments. For various reasons (mostly spam) our mods had to delete 25,074 comments, which are not included in the numbers above.

Now, let’s shift our focus towards our YouTube channel.



That’s the amount of time you’ve spent watching videos on our Youtube channel. Equal to 70 years! We’ve uploaded 183 videos this year, bumping the total to 2,747. And we’ve got 245,126 new subscribers.



Our newest tool - the price compare - got this many uses this year. It tracks the prices of 10,000 listings across a dozen stores several times a day and obviously proved useful for many of you. Context? This is the number of clicks you need to finish Witcher 3 Wild Hunt with all side quests 27 times.
