What are the Trusted Reviews Awards 2021?

The Trusted Reviews Awards are our yearly celebration of the best products, companies and services in the world of tech. Our team of experts pick the best products from all of the major categories of products that we review, including home, TV/Audio, mobiles and more.

We’ve had to make a few changes this year, and there’s not a live event in London to announce the winners. Instead, the entire event is performed online. You’ll be able to follow along as the awards are announced across the week.
