    The website had a 4.5 rating overall yesterday on 8 total ratings and is now a 5.0 on 6 ratings.

    They removed downranked reviews because of no availability. Amazon really should do the same as its not a valid review. I do like they have 'verified reviews' for those who actually purchased the device.

    This is why I don't trust product reviews. It's supposed to be rating of the product itself, not it's distribution, availability, marketing execution, "empty promises from retailers". Someone on Amazon gave the phone 1 star because of Amazon's lack of availability. So the phone got a poor rating??? Why I don't trust anonymous, random "product" reviews.

    That's not censorship any more than allowing me to post a "review" where I rant about globalist conspiracies. It is irrelevant to the product itself.

    I say that as someone who has been highly critical of BBM.

    Agreed! Obviously, a bad review because the product is not available is not a review of the product, which makes it irrelevant for a product review.

    Same for amazon. Availability single stars. No merit on product itself.

    You can also sometimes spot people using same nick names after they make their view know here lol.

    Wouldn't buy from Best Buy myself from misinformed salespeople. I guess you get that anywhere though. You got to see the right person.

    Even with cars i do all my own research - in the end you end up knowing more about the product than the sales "specialist"

    What empty promises were made from BestBuy or Amazon? Or are you saying BBM? I don't remember BestBuy making any promises at all. Same to be said for Amazon. I'm disappointed because my classic is getting long in the tooth but they'll be ready when they're ready and ill buy one. Not such a bad thing to have one from a newer batch!

    Best Buy removing all ability to search local stores for inventory after selling out online? Removing reviews that they don't like to see? Amazon and Best Buy starting sales a day before the product was supposed to launch?

    Ok but what promises were made? Did they (best buy or amazon) say they were going on sale 5/31? It's all BBM that made any promises.

    If Best Buy is removing reviews that have nothing to do with the PRODUCT, then that's exactly what they SHOULD be doing.

    Being sold out has nothing to do with the PRODUCT. If you want to review Best Buy, then review THEM but not on the product page -- do it on Yelp or wherever.

    BBM is a messenger app. BB is the company.

    If you are reviewing the device (not the supplier) you should not downvote the device. If you are reviewing the supplier downvote the supplier.
