The Microsoft Surface Duo is surprisingly pocketable.

We are fully immersed in the tech review season, and this week’s episode of The Vergecast proves it.

The Verge’s Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, and Tom Warren dive into reviews of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, Microsoft’s Surface Duo, and Android 11. Two foldables reviewed running on Android — how do they compare? That’s why The Vergecast exists, I suppose.

We’re also coming into the game console season. The prices have been revealed for the Xbox Series X and the newly revealed, cheaper Xbox Series S, while the PS5 release date and price are still unknown. The crew breaks down what you are getting for your money when investing in these consoles.

And of course, an Apple event was announced this week. The gadget rumors are surfacing, and The Vergecast picks through them.

There’s a whole lot more discussed this week on the show. Here are all of the stories that were referenced:
