I always look at the lowest reviews and most recent reviews


‘Worked good. Thanks”


What I look for is edited reviews. Not someone who got it opened it and made a review based on the first 2 seconds they had it, I wanna know what people put stuff through and it still works


Many of the reviews are entirely fake and done by bots. Read the text — if the English seems off, or they mention very odd positive qualities — like the color of a charger cable — they are probably frauds.
