Let the facts speak!

Versus is a global comparison platform, providing unbiased and user-friendly comparisons across various categories, from tech products to cities. By providing accurate and objective information, as well as structured, easy-to-visualize data, we aim to ease decision-making.

The problem:

Information overload

Making the right choice when faced with an ever-growing number of options is a genuine challenge of our times. Gathering relevant and accurate data is no easy task: our brains are constantly overloaded with information, offers and possibilities. With new products and features to keep up with each day, making the choice that best suits one's needs demands a lot of time – and with possible bias from manufacturers and retailers, there is no guaranteed accuracy in what you'll find in your research.

Our solution:

Fact-based, objective comparisons

We understand that making objective and well-informed decisions is a challenging task and that our users' time is precious – that's why we'll do all the heavy lifting for you. It's our job to research, analyze, and disclose relevant, accurate data for multiple categories and products in a straightforward way. Do you want a smartphone with an ultra-fast processor? Or are you planning a trip to a city with lots of museums? Whatever you are looking for, all you have to do is to have your priorities in mind and use Versus as your research tool. We provide all the data you need at a glance.


Our values:

Accuracy, Impartiality, Transparency, Simplicity, Informativeness

Versus currently covers over 90 categories, from consumer electronics to software and services. To provide an objective overview of the most important specifications, features, and facts, we gather data from manufacturers’ websites, product manuals, and we also test products and apps. You can read more about our research process and editorial values in our editorial guidelines.

A high score at versus.com and a great ranking cannot be obtained monetarily. We are completely impartial, thus only items with exceptional features receive a high score. To find out how we calculate the Versus score, check out our FAQ section.

A little bit of history

Versus was launched in 2012 with the purpose of helping users make informed buying decisions through objective, fact-based comparisons. Our initial focus was on tech products (mainly mobile devices) but we expanded our know-how to other categories, such as apps, cities, universities, and nutrition. Versus now covers over 7 million comparisons, available in 14 languages. In June 2016, the company became part of the Media 1 Group (formerly known as MenschDanke).
