What the Critics Are Saying...


Cnet

I won't cut a phone for being basic, but I'll strike it down for not doing its job. And that's why I can't recommend the Verge to anyone who just needs a phone to make calls. I admire Huawei's minimalist design angle, but the camera and browser don't do it any favors. And more importantly, its call...
