A report was released yesterday in which allegation was charged on Huawei mobile about posting fake user reviews for its flagship phone Huawei Mate 10 Pro. These reviews were posted in a private Facebook group having more than 60,000 members.
The allegation was that the company had told the members that if they give positive reviews about the device on Best Buy page, then they will be given an opportunity to become the beta testers for the phone through a lucky draw.
The wording of such a thing was obviously quite strange, because how come anyone could give it a positive review before even using it.
Hence, the reps of Huawei were approached by Android Authority for responding to this situation, and the following response was submitted by Huawei’s representative:
“Huawei’s first priority is always the consumer and we encourage our customers to share their experiences with our devices in their own voice and through authentic conversation. We believe there is confusion around a recent social media post reaching out to recruit new beta testers. While there are reviews from beta testers with extensive knowledge of the product, they were in no way given monetary benefits for providing their honest opinions of the product. However, we are working to remove posts by beta testers where it isn’t disclosed they participated in the review program.”
So, it seems that the company has already had the individuals for beta testing the phone in USA, and these were those beta testers who published their reviews over Best Buy page.
