TrustedReviews Awards 2016: All the winners revealed

TrustedReviews Awards 2016 Winner’s List: All the year’s best tech and gadgets revealed.

At an exclusive awards party in London, TrustedReviews Editor Evan Kypreos was joined by iconic British actor and comedian Chris Barrie to present the winners of the TrustedReviews Awards 2016.

No less than 28 industry products, services, and companies were honoured at the event, with TrustedReviews readers helping to decide a number of key categories, including Brand of the Year, which went to Google.

Watch our awards video below:

“Picking the winners of the TrustedReviews Awards this year was incredibly difficult, which reflects what an amazing and innovative 12 months it has been in tech,” Kypreos commented.

He added: “Backed by a rigorous reviews process, our awards recognise outstanding product design and customer service, not just good marketing. It was great to be able to congratulate and celebrate with such an amazing and diverse array of brands.”

We appreciate all the readers who cast their votes, the companies who built such great products and services, and everyone who attended the awards. We’d also like to thank Bespoke Arcades for the amazing arcade machines, Titan the Robot for welcoming (read: terrifying) our guests, and our partner for the event, Fitbit.
