Relying On Camera Cell Phone Ratings Sites

Which types of camera cell phone ratings sites are worth paying attention to

A report published by market research firms,Guest Posting Jupiter and iProspect, claim that consumers look at online camera cell phone ratings before deciding to purchase. It equates sales figures with popularity of a certain brand or model.

The same report, which was released in January 2007, stated that as much as one out of three people would look at social networking sites in the internet that feature comparisons between different models of certain items.

Amazon's product ratings drew the biggest number of viewers from the 2223 consumers who responded to the survey, and the consensus seemed to be that they consulted Amazon not only for the consumer camera cell phone ratings as much as for the selection and prices of the camera cell phones being offered there.

There are two "styles" of camera cell phone ratings sites:  the ones managed by an individual or handful of cell phone experts, who really know their stuff and are not afraid to put their recommendations on the line with clear recommendations.  But as more and more camera cell phones with more and more advanced technologies hit the marketplace, they can get behind the curve.

Survey sites and online stores, like Amazon, also have their own camera cell phone ratings. The members or site visitors are asked to rate and give their comments on a mobile device they have used. These studies are more focused on an individual's preference for a particular brand, rather than on the merits of its features. The more widely used an item, the higher is its ranking. Thus, the outcome of these surveys is based more often than not on a mobile device's popularity. The technical aspects are not usually considered.

In an ideal world, camera cell phoned ratings sites would combine recommendations of camera cell phones based on expert, unbiased testing with input from consumers who have used those phones for a reasonable amount of time, under reasonable real-world conditions.  These sites would have no vested interest in recommending the phones from one manufacturer; in other words, they would neither be selling the phones nor getting them at no cost in exchange for a friendly review.

The most popular type of camera cell phone ratings come from sites who conduct surveys on their visitors. Another concern for the type of rankings they feature is the fact that these may be influenced by ongoing advertisements and promos from product distributors. Although they need sponsors for their business to flourish and drive traffic to their sites, any review published by them could be partial to a particular product.

Can you rely on camera cell phone ratings you find online?   You are probably safest using the sites which perform their own independent research on consumer products, and provide clear comparisons of the camera cell phones which they reviewed, with their recommendations.  Their reputations are at stake; they have the resources to thoroughly test each camera cell phone and will let you know the extent to which they did; and they are not paid by the manufacturers.  But you may have to pay a subscription fee to access their most recent ratings.
