Technology remains a wonderful advancement that not only helps to entertain us, but also helps to better our lives in many ways. Sometimes technology is just about convenience rather than bettering the quality of life. For many of us in the tech industry and for consumers too, new technology comes in the form of new smartphones, new wearables and new software like apps and games that are released each year. While there is no right answer to questions like what is the best smartphone or what is the best game, as everyone will have different opinions based on what they feel is right for them personally, we like to do awards every year to find out what our readers think are the best devices, or rather, what devices, apps, games, etc. are the most popular.
To do this we set up categories for different device types, as well as a category for apps, games, and carriers, and we have put together a series of polls for each category for you, our readers, to vote on which ones are the best from this year. Categories include best smartphone, best budget smartphone, best Chinese smartphone, best smartphone camera, best battery life, best tablet, best smartwatch, best fitness/activity tracker, best chromebook, best app, best game, and best carrier.
