How we rate mobiles
One of the most innovative features our site offers is the rating system. Our system relies on a large set of equations to calculate each mobile rate according to many consuming segments (such as Business, Gaming, etc...) Those equations turn mobile features into numeric values which reflect mobile suitability for that segment user.
Currently our system rate mobiles in six consuming segment; each one of these segments (as the following list exhibits) takes a different set of specifications into account when its rate is calculated:
- Processing And Operations
- Display And Multimedia
- Communicationg And Inetraction
Since some specifications are more important than the others, we gave them appropriate weights to impact the result through. It is worthy to mention that our equations are continually developed and re-adjusted to ensure tracking the popping up inventions and simulating current market demands. Thus the visitor can spare himself learning about hundreds of mobile technologies and knowing their impact on his preference.
- We sort mobiles of each segment descending from the higher to lower rate
- We give 100% mark to the best mobile on every consuming segment, then we proportionate the rest of mobiles’ mark to the greatest one in the same segment, we also not reveal marks which are below 50%. E.g. if mobile X has been ranked 100% in processing and operations segment; the other mobiles within the same segment will be proportionate to mobile X to be ranked, so mobile X will remains on the top of this segment till new mobile better than it launched, it then will catch 100% and other mobiles will proportionate to it.
- Our evaluation is based on features only. I.e. if two mobiles have the same specifications, our system will give them equal values regardless of quality. So you have to take care of the quality factor and choose the brand you trust or which have a good reputation in the segment of your interest
- Don’t stop after seeing our rating results! Generally the feature-overwhelmed mobiles (which take high scores) are sometimes large and heavy, or too expensive. So you have to continue filtering to reach the best mobile for you
- We are not completely relying on manufacturer's segmentation of mobiles, for example if the manufacturer planed the mobile X for photography but our system gave it high scores in photography and entertainment, then the mobile X will appear highly-rated in both segments
Jawal 123 has developed a new assessment method, by implementing Equations Based Rate. We will go through the traditional rating methods used in e-commerce field and define the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Moreover we will illustrate how Jawal 123 rating method works and how could provide you with dependable information.
Traditional rating methods of e-commerce
Visitors' Rate: each visitor is allowed to comment on and rate the product without any reservation.
Pros: allow visitors to inspect other visitors/users opinions on the product they are interested in. some sites allow visitors to directly reach the best rated products or sort their search results accordingly
Cons: the visitor may be the seller of the product, the seller of a competing product, a low educated, a sarcastic or a brand biased one. That will make a significant confusion especially for less commented products.
Editor's Rate: the editor is qualified enough to inspect the product and rate it in numeric values based on his experience and sight.
Pros: the editor's rate is much more beneficial and time saving than visitors’, it’s usually not biased. The rating values can also be used through searching operations.
Cons: 1st the editor rate is time-based, i.e. the 9-of-10 rated product in 2007 is not that advanced in 2009 and so on. 2nd the editor may unintentionally drop some factors which are usually taken into account or change their impacts. 3rd the rate is generic and not segment based i.e. businessmen or photographers.
Editor Review: the editor writes a 5-page article that deeply describes the product usage experience.
Pros: detailed article which is rich in images and sometimes videos.
Cons: it consumes too much time to read 5+ pages about each product the buyer thinks to own, yet much harder to find the best product for him through those reviews.
Equations rating method developed by Jawal 123
Equations Based Rate: The site has an adjustable arithmetic system to rate the products upon their features. This approach has already approved its efficiency in search engines.
Pros: 1st it takes the advantages of editor rating especially the deep experience, but overcomes the human fault factors, 2nd it is keep paced with ongoing products development and market demands so no old rating values are still misleading, 3rd the brand biasing is declined. 4th the rates can enhance the searching process and give visitors the best products first.
Cons: there is no existence of quality factors, so the visitor has to take the brand reputation into account when making his decision.
