on my opinion, we must first acknowledge a person before we can trust

Trust nobody, always expect to get scammed. That way you would not be surprised if it happens and you will always do your due diligence. As people say, the hardware is not "open source" if you can put it like that.
For self verification on what data that hardware wallet sends out you could probably use wireshark. Its a program that does packet captures, so you can literally see any information that it might be sending. (might take some getting used to and knowledge to understand the outputs from that application though)

Personally on the topic of hardware wallets, I would expect they are fully safe and legit. The amount of tech savvy and paranoid people in this space ensures that. We would definitely have developers raising the red flag if there was anything dodgy in the code.

I'm using a Trezor and it is so popular that it is unlikely that the campaign will catch up with any fails. But you can not be sure of anything, so I prefer to share the balance on different wallets

It is not a tough question to answer. You should not trust anyone in this world including yourself. But this is the world we live. We have no other choice but to trust the people who make the hardware wallet. Otherwise, keep your money under your bed.
