The authors of the “review” are used to writing about smartphones and laptops, so the review style is appropriate.
In 2015, the technology publication The Verge launched the ironic Review of Animals column, where editors reviewed animals instead of gadgets. Journalists took some characteristics from typical smartphone reviews: for example, cats were recorded as “excellent vision” plus dogs were criticized for spending a lot of money on them.
Four years later, The Verge editor Vlad Savov (in the heading of the publication he praised the hens) went further and tweeted a brief overview on the human body. The criteria from phone reviews went again: built-in Face-ID (vision and memory), long recharging (need to sleep) and the requirement to constantly use the “cover” (to walk in clothes).

Review on the human body. Pros: liquid cooling system, built-in Face ID, enough entertainment, self-healing skin, the more you use it, the better it becomes. Cons: long recharging, you need to constantly carry in a case, it breaks easily, you still need to work on your intellect. 7.5 points out of 10.
A well-known video blogger Marquez Brownlee joined Savov, who added a review with his points.

Needs recharging every night – older models will only last until the early afternoon before going flat.— Alex Summerfield (@AlexSmmrfld) April 30, 2019
And you need to recharge every night. The older the model, the less it will hold “charge”
The cameras degrade over time though…— Chris Lowles (@chrishadfun) April 30, 2019
