(Apple rocks, android sucks, android rocks, apple sucks)
Fans of any product will do this if a review likes a competing product. It is not limited to Android fans.

I have no confidence in Engadget to do a proper assessment of any product ever since their camera phone review over a year ago. They made one of the best camera phones at the time (Nokia N8) take absolutely horrible pictures compared to every other phone they compared it to. By horrible, I mean not even close. I have boycotted Engadget ever since as they have lost my confidence.
