Android Police product review ethics statement
We take the objective assessment of the products we receive for review extremely seriously. However, common practice in the technology product industry means that a minority of the products we review are sent as "samples." This industry term means that sometimes a product is sent to us with no expectation that it be returned to the person or company requesting a review. This does not mean the review is "sponsored," "paid," or otherwise compensated - it just means we don't need to send the product back. Rarely, if ever, are we explicitly told prior to reviewing a product that we do not need to return it. In general, we operate under the assumption that any product we review is something we would be required to send back. Personal objectivity is our highest goal as part of any product review, and we promise to always "call it like we see it."
