A new study from Electronics Hub which used Fakespot AI to find which mobile phones have the highest density of fake reviews says the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max is the electronic product with the highest density of fake reviews (70.0%).
The wider study also found which phone manufacturers receive the highest number of fake reviews.
The Fakespot website uses artificial intelligence to “detect fake reviews and scams.” The folks at Electronic Hub say they analyzed Fakespot data to identify the electronic products and brands with the highest density of Amazon reviews suspected of being fake or unreliable.
Electronic Hub says that iPhones have the most unreliable reviews among electronic products. But Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 joins them in having more fakes than real ones. Other tidbits from the report:
- The brand with the highest overall density of unreliable reviews is Xiaomi (47.67).
- Around 36.3% of Nintendo Switch reviews are fake, the highest figure for any gaming console.
- The Sony Alpha 7R IV (45.5%) and Canon EOS R6 (45.0%) are the cameras with the most unreliable user reviews.
Electronic Hub notes in its report that its findings are not a reflection on the brands themselves, and fake reviews may be provided by scammers, third-party merchants, rivals, and fans, among other reviewers.
