    I don’t understand the need for all these buying guide articles to wade through.

    Make a simple no BS no fluff FAQ that has branched links to the devices that fit whatever “Buyer X” wants in size, price, and specs.

    …and make it short. :)

    Nice job. This must have taken a long to write and edit over the years. I do think the battery section could be edited a bit the next time you published. Adding predictions for the 5 year period you include doesn’t add value for the reader (maybe that belongs more of interesting facts and tidbits in the history section). Regardless, the guide is unique.

    Great job !
