The Zero1 Awards exemplify the best of performance and the year 2016 has had some remarkable products.

What are the Zero1 Awards?

Awaited by technology enthusiasts and coveted by technology brands, the Zero1 Awards have been the hallmark of quality and performance since 2001. The Zero1 is the only award in this space which relies on extensive tests and is awarded only on the basis of pure performance. Every year, the Zero1 Awards evolve to keep up with new category launches and rightly so. This year’s Zero1 Awards not only features the regulars from the PC and mobile categories but delves deeper into sub-categories of the mobile segment aside from incorporating newer categories. So what makes Zero1 so different from the rest of the awards Digit confers? We have one of the best equipped Test Labs and an army of reviewers with in-depth domain knowledge. The combination of the two allows us to pick out the very best performers in all aspects where cost, design and features don’t matter. Simply put, if you want the best thing money can buy, then you can’t go wrong with a Zero1 winner – and that’s something our readers have long known and look forward to every year.

We wish to extend our sincere gratitude to all the brand representatives who’ve supported us in the past and continue to do so, helping us serve the Indian tech enthusiast even better. Certainly there have been instances where the better product bags the Zero1 Award by just a sliver, so while the awardees rejoice, those who’ve trailed shouldn’t be disheartened. We’ve chronicled their might alongside the awardees. Each category has two other Digit recommended products – these might offer the best value, the best design, or maybe even a ton of features. While we go through hundreds of products throughout the year, the month of November sees an even greater inflow as manufacturers try their hardest to send in their latest and greatest with the hopes of bagging the coveted Zero1 Award for their category. So after a ridiculously hectic month of benchmarking and testing, the Digit Team is proud to announce the winners of the Zero1 Awards 2016. These are the best performing products that have entered our hallowed halls and will serve as benchmarks for future challengers to emerge.
