CES 2018 - Samsung charming the most influential reviewers?
Firstly, I respect these professional &, from what I've seen, unbiased reviewers on YouTube so forgive me if this comes across as anti-Samsung/Google etc. I'd also think the same if Apple did the same...
But as these tech reviewer professions blossom, their opinions carry more clout & influence in the world of phone tech, so reading up on a prominent reviewer thanking Samsung for a dinner at CES 2018 (which also included reviewers who are iPhone users btw, so no discrimination on Samsung's part ), the old 'conflict of interest' thoughts entered my head.
Does it seem right that a major player in phone manufacturing is shouting tech reviewers a decent meal/drinks in a landscape where their opinions are ever more critical to its success? & not only the splurging on them, but the fact a reviewer (maybe more) is publicly thanking the brand for it?
Maybe overthinking things again.... It's what I do...I think..
(Mods, if this is more apt in another section, feel free to shift it over).
