One of these days, sales of the flagship Huawei Mate 10 Pro should start in a number of countries, now the smartphone in them is available only for pre-order. To attract attention, the company decided to literally buy user reviews.
What is it like
Yes, everything is simple. To boost sales, on January 31, the Chinese wrote a special message to the Facebook group:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Tell us why you WANT to own the Mate 10 Pro in the reviews section of the Best Buy pre-order page.[/perfectpullquote]
In exchange for this, some users will be able to become beta testers of the novelty.
108 reviews were written on the Best Buy website itself, 103 of which were written on the day the competition was launched. And everything, as a blueprint, praise the device, not even holding it in their hands.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]I have mate 9, and I am delighted. I think that mate 10 pro will be the best smartphone.[/perfectpullquote]
I love Huawei and Honor. I have had several years of honor, and I would like to upgrade to the new flagship Huawei smartphone … if I had the money, it would definitely be my new purchase. And I really hope to win one myself.
Since now this situation has cleared up, the retailer will probably remove these reviews and lower the rating of the smartphone. Best Buy policy banally forbids writing in reviews, advertising, spam and other things.
Users will not catch
We wanted the best, it came out as always. There is always one dissatisfied who will ruin everything.
Always check reviews not only in one place, but also by date of publication. Who knows, maybe Huawei will decide again to encourage buyers to write positive reviews on the next smartphone.
Are you guys so bad that you decided to go in for black marketing? Do not do it this way. [ The Verge ]
