Currently I am using Google's Android One device and I am about to purchase a new Smart phone soon. I was researching on the options available and noticed that some online retailers have fake reviewers and reviews too have become a part of marketing strategy.

As here on this site we have real Android enthusiasts Can I ask for genuine reviews of Lenovo Vibe X2 and Huawei Honor 6 here ?

I thought of before asking and getting the question closed, I should ask in meta first. IMHO it should be allowed as name of this site is Android Enthusiasts instead of Android Programmers.


The Help Center page What topics can I as about here? has the following sections:

  • Recommendations, like "Which phone is better?" or "Can you suggest an app that does X?"
  • Shopping advice and suggestions, including what device to buy or where to buy it

This is because shopping questions have no one definite answer, and as such are a bad fit for a question/answer site. Each user has their own preferences and use patterns, and therefore the answers can't be really considered universal.

Therefore, in my opinion, your question is better suited on a forum instead of a q/a site. Maybe you'll find a suitable place listed in Where can I as questions that aren't Android Enthusiasts questions?

  • Thanks for the link.. I am not asking about the opinion of device.. I just wanted to know if someone has this device already what are their views and will they recommend it to someone else ?

    @Amit it's far too open in that regard. I could say that the Galaxy S5 is the absolute best phone there is, and you'll spend a fortune on one and find it tacky and plastic and bloated. What I like in a phone is often not what others like.

    @Amit Asking for their views and will they recommend it is asking for an opinion. It's basically the definition of opinion, which is why reviews are problematic. Feb 11 '15 at 15:18
  • Another point is that if any phone is recommended here, it can't stay for long. New phones are being launched every now and then, and none can be recommended for a long period of time. So, if the feature is introduced, it will have to be updated with each launch of a new phone, and that will be a major burden on the moderators. Why? "Seek happiness for others, and you'll be happy doing so. " - Me. :)
