Maybe not the best move
By Dani Deahl
Huawei's new flagship phone, the Mate 10 Pro, is available for pre-order in the US despite not having any deals with US carriers
- so to get some attention, it seems the company has stooped to having fake reviews for the new phone planted online, as spotted by9to5Google.
The fake reviews, which are exclusively on the Best Buy website, are likely the result of a contest Huawei ran on Facebook. On January31st, the company posted to a Facebook group with over 60,000 members, asking for people to leave comments on the Best Buy pre-sale page in exchange for a chance to beta test a Mate 10 Pro. The original post has been deleted, but 9to5Google obtained a screenshot before it went down. "Tell us how to why (sic) you WANT to own the Mate 10 Pro in the review section of our pre-sale Best Buy retail page," the post states.
