Is The Verge more for designers than engineers?

I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but lately I think that The Verge is targeting more designers than engineers. Whether it's the comments section of particular products or giving a better overall rating to the HTC1 even though the GS4 scored higher in all other benchmarks than design, it seems that this site is focused more on how products look than how well they work.

Consequently, I'm thinking of moving my primary tech news to a site that focuses more on tech specs - but I'll still come back to here for some interesting articles on science and the arts. But I'll no longer trust the reviews here.

What does everyone else think? Are other spec fans migrating to another site for tech reviews and news?
