I think it’s good to be somewhat transparent. At the moment, I have received £1 in donations. Ideally, I would like to receive more so I have a reason to put more time, money and effort into this site. My reviews are a bit rushed but I’ve tried to touch subjects other reviewers haven’t necessarily e.g. the USB/SMB issues related to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
I understand that when you’re interested in buying something, a poor review can be pretty obnoxious, especially if it doesn’t answer specific questions you might have. I think I have helped more people via email than with my reviews, so if you have any specific questions I can help you with, please feel free to contact me (there’s a contact form on the about page) and I’ll do my best to help :).
Alternatively, you can contact me via direct message on my instagram @ cupofteamate.
