Buying Guide

You've read all the reviews, but now you're actually ready to buy something and need to make a decision. The Verge Buying Guides are here for you — these are our go-to recommendations for the ultimate question: which one do I buy? Our picks aren't necessarily the best in every category, but they are the best choices for most people. We also aim to provide an alternative option if our main selection isn't the right one for you. Buying Guides are updated as new products are released and tested, so be sure to check back frequently for new information.
