What are the Trusted Reviews Awards 2022?

The Trusted Reviews Awards are a yearly celebration of the best products and companies in the world of mobile, homes, computing, gaming, cameras, TV and audio.

Alongside the regular Editor’s Choice awards Trusted Reviews will this year also debut a new category of mobile network awards, which will leverage customer experiences collected from the site’s readers to pick the best performing carriers this year.

When are the Trusted Reviews Awards?

The Trusted Reviews Awards will take place on September 29. Ahead of that we’ll reveal the awards categories and shortlists at a later date this summer.

Where are the Trusted Reviews Awards 2022?

After two years as a digital only event, Trusted Reviews is pleased to announce the Trusted Reviews Awards will be returning as a physical event in 2022.

In a nod to the event’s heritage we’ll be hosting the Trusted Reviews Awards 2022 in the Hollywood Bowl at the O2 Arena. Guests will have a chance to party and enjoy a glass with the team at Trusted Reviews while also enjoying the venue’s arcade cabinets and entertainment machines free of charge.

The venue holds a special place in Trusted’s history with the site having held two of its earliest awards ceremonies there many moons ago.

Readers will also be able to follow the event live as we’ll be revealing the winners of each category in realtime on our social media channels.

How are the winners chosen?

To be considered as a shortlist candidate a product must have been fully reviewed by one of the experts at Trusted Reviews and, outside of rare exceptions, scored at least 4/5 recommended in the past 12 months. The winner is then decided by the internal team of experts based on their experience reviewing it and knowledge of the market holistically. The only categories that don’t follow this process are the newly launched mobile network awards.

Best mobile network awards

This year Trusted Reviews is launching a new category of mobile network awards. Unlike the Editor’s Choice Awards the winners will be decided based on a user survey that will gauge key factors including:

  • Would they recommend their network to others?
  • How do they rate their overall experience with the network?
  • How do they rate their network’s customer service?
  • How do they rate their network’s overall coverage?
  • How do they rate their network’s 5G coverage?
  • How do they rate their network’s roaming packages?
  • How would they rate their network for reliability?
  • How would they rate their network’s connection speed?
  • If they think their network’s good value for money
  • How would they rate their network’s rewards scheme/benefits?

Based on the results, we will then announce the winner on the night.
