    You can outsource article writing from freelance websites. You can actually get as low as $5. Or if you want the contents free, create an autoblog, get from article directories etc..

    You can build another autoblog about smartphone reviews and choose the best article for your main site.

    If you want genuine and original content you can hire few writers to write reviews for you.Otherwise just copy-paste reviews from other sites.

    Get in contact with some manufacturers or an online retailer for smartphones (I'd recommend trying to contact a small retailer and promise them exposure and backlinks for their site in return for lending you a device for review) and secure some loaner phones for reviews. You can do this in conjunction with getting freelance writers, but it will be easier if you do the reviews on your own from the start and as things blossom on your website you can add other GOOD writers and do some revenue sharing. You can make some serious money with a review site, especially so for a hot niche like smartphones (focus on Android and Apple if you want the best results).

    However if you want to take the easy route and not do honest reviews your site won't last long, people will be able to see through your fake reviews and you can also get into legal problems if you just outright copy others reviews.

    Outsourcing that kind of content is difficult and expensive, at least $20 per post for a good review as opposed to shallow generic waffle.

    My advice would be to trawl relevant forums, see if you can find active members with the knowledge and approach them, you may find someone who knows their stuff for a good rate that way, but you can pretty well write off writers from freelancing sites etc.

    Go with fiverr and something like that. If you don't satisfy the result, you can always deny the job.

    I want 3 articles to be written about 3 different products and if I'm not happy with the results on fiverr, I can just deny to pay the writer? Cause I'm a bit skeptical about the quality of the work they will be able to produce.

    Accept guest posts on your blog. Create a page about it. Give 2 links from the content.

    do your keyword search on the most popular smartphones
    go to a forum or an answers site

    ask questions based on your keyword like:
    should i get an iphone 4s?
    what's the difference between motorla android and samsung htc?

    people will write your content for you

    optional: when you get enough responses...have your thread removed (for original content...if that's important for you)

    You'll be hard pressed to get many worthwhile answers asking about the iPhone 4s on most sites :D
