I mean that I'm a professional webmaster, I can get a website up and running in just 2 - 5 days, design it and fill the whole site with a whole lot of content and optimize the SEO to get a whole lot of traffic, but still, I don't have that much time, companies firstly want a person to have a site up and running that's a bit famous too but they never see if the person has the potential and knowledge to review or not so, all I want to say to these companies is that see the potential, not their popularity or if they have a site or not.
I want you people to comment on this and share their views.

The devices for review from the companies will be available to the blogs which has good number of traffic.
1. Company expects, the review to gain new customers. What is the purpose of a review which does-not get any traffic?
2. What is the problem in creating a blog and promoting it? Any way you need a forum to share your review. If you have your own blog, then even you earn money for it.
3. If you dont have a time to write review, then why company needs to provide the review unit?
There are places like wordpress, which doesn't consume much time to go online. If your content is good people will come. If you are not getting traffic, then your content is not good.
Even big reviewers today, invested money and bought devices for review. When they reached a certain level they started receiving the units.
I truly accept your belief.
I am quite interested in tech and am updated in the latest news and releases and their potential. In this way I feel quite talented. However, today's world sidelines the regular people like us who have more realistic ideologies in favor of bigger companies who simply have the marketing, that is, those who have lot of money.
Even those who can do all that is involved in developing a website aren't getting a lot of recognition. I have seen loads of websites, many from India, those have great potential and great authors, but never seem to shine because nobody noticed them.
In countries like the USA, Amazon runs a program in which, if Amazon feels that your product reviews are good, it'll invite you to join a program where you can get some complimentary devices for reviewing purposes on behalf of Amazon. Though his also requires a lot of money (you need to buy products initially), it at least gives people another option. However, such programs are extremely rare in India.
However, the reason companies give their products to popular websites is because they are much safer and much more effective investments. For example, if an ordinary person like me posts a review, not more than 10 people are going to take it seriously, but if, say, NDTV posts a review, probably at least a lakh (100000) people are going to read it.
I wouldn't justify their actions though, as I am also trying to become a review, although with paltry success. It's just more profitable when looking in numbers. What companies don't understand is that, when a common person is reviewing an article, he/she knows the scenario it's going to be used in and thus reviews it accordingly, thus the review will have a greater impact on the little number of people reading it.
Agree with you mate..
These company just cash on popularity & not on knowledge domain of reviewer..
Most of the site including NDTV has half of the insight parameters missing in their specifications listing & also in their reviews too.
If Ndtv wishes to review a mobile next times better send me a review piece
me & my team wud write-up a review thats insighful & not just superficial..
