Update: You can find all the winners here. 

In 2019, we held our very first consumer tech and gadgets awards and we truly appreciated the tremendous response. Like I said then also, I always wanted to do Gadgets and Tech Awards, me and the team are continuing the tradition in 2020 too. Yes, this year was an unusual one (thanks to the pandemic) and was rough for many. But that is not going to stop us and we with you will power through with positivity. You, our readers, viewers and listeners have been a true pillar of strength for us.
