The Verge Reviews program is the essential guide to tech. Our goal is to help our massive audience decide what to buy, what not to, and how to use it all — but those are just the basics. Verge Guides go further: our stories explain why the tech that’s impacting your life right now is worth paying attention to. Across video, photography, the web, and every platform imaginable, our reviews and guides educate our audience. We may be experts, but we don’t speak in arcane language and we always strive to tell stories in addition to measuring specs.
