Techtyche – Editorial Guidelines and Standards
Techtyche was launched with the sole purpose of bringing tech enthusiasts the latest news and reviews from the tech industry.
We here at Techtyche strive to ensure that not only do you buy the best products but you also use them to their fullest potential.
We use a variety of media to get our content to you such as through:
- Social media
- Review posts
And much more.
Techtyche’s Editorial Values
Over the course of the last few years, our team has created all types of content that deal with a variety of topics related to tech.
However, no matter how varied the topic and the content is, there are a few values that are present within all of our content.
These values are:
- Integrity and unbiased reviews
- Factual reporting with the help of extensive testing for products
- Utilizing ethical journalism and tested modes of investigation for news posts
- The inclusion of diverse voices in the tech community
Our Review Process and Editorial Products
The editorial products on Techtyche can be largely broken down into three different categories:
- News posts
- Review posts
- How-to guides and tutorials
The topics we usually tackle within these articles are related to different products in the tech industry such as:
- Car speakers
- Gaming consoles
- VR headsets
- VR games
- Video games
- Gaming PCs
- Weird tech
And a whole lot more.
A lot of people ask us about our review process for products and what it’s like. Well, if we were to summarize it, it just consists of us using the product to its limit over the course of a month.
In the end, depending on what type of product it is, we rank its performance in terms of different factors such as:
- Battery life
- Build quality
These are just some examples of some traits but of course, they may change depending on what type of product we’re reviewing.
The product is typically tested by three different testers to ensure there’s no margin for human error. Furthermore, if it’s a comparison review, then we compare the performance between products as well.
If a manufacturer really talks up a certain aspect of their product, we’ll test that particular aspect to its limit, always.
For example, if a manufacturer claims that their Bluetooth speaker is fully waterproof, you can bet we’ll put it at the bottom of a 6 ft pool during testing.
Our Editorial Safety Nets
When we first started Techtyche, it was very important to us to only do fact-based reporting and reviewing. Nothing would be speculative.
All of our posts are peer-reviewed by other writers and journalists in the team to ensure everything is up to par. If something needs changing, then we’ll clearly label it as an update or clarification.
We also strongly forbid any of the members of our team from taking compensation from any manufacturer or company. Of course, this would result in a conflict of interest and then, the review would definitely not be unbiased.
In most cases, our writers are not allowed to have any type of business partnership with manufacturers whose products we review.
Sometimes, we do get sent products from different manufacturers who’d like us to review it. In this case, they are clearly told that the review will be fact-based and unbiased. Hence, if their product is not up to par, then we’ll definitely say so.

As you can probably tell, that little console changed everything for little old me. Over the course of my life, I haven’t always been super connected with the gaming world.
Shah Nawaz has now devoted himself to experiencing, talking and developing video games.
