Top 5 Worst Tech Gadgets of 2016

Andrew Williams



The year is just about done, and with our annual TrustedReviews awards we’ve celebrated the best new technology of the year. However, what about the worst bits?

We don't generally see many truly bad products at TrustedReviews. Most big tech brands are smart enough to kill any stinkers before they reach the shops, while we don't see that many dodgy knock-offs around these parts.

This is, of course, a very good thing. The fact that serious tech brands rarely produce genuinly bad products anymore is something we should celebrate, but that doesn't mean it never happens.

Here we’ve rounded-up the top 5 stinkiest new gadgets we’ve looked at this year. Get your nose pegs ready.

Leave us a comment below if you’ve made a tech buy that you’ve deeply regretted this year.

What about Facebook Home (aka 'the facebook phone')? Surely one of the biggest flops of 2013?

Well, well TR, everything that comes out on South Korea is pure crap Android, then you have even more crap, that comes out of Gates's business Microsoft, what with everything called Windows and of course not forgetting Google, with the crap they produce.

How about the Pebble? Good concept but black and white, fonts you cannot read after "certain" age and worst of all, the hugeeee amount of problems with the stupid magnetic connections. Mine lasted less than six months and the phone is now unusable. Am I going to send to the States, not sure about that. It certainly told me a lesson about magnetic chargers!
