TechRadar Middle East 2017 Awards

Updated: We've added some of the Editor's Choice nominations below. More categories will be revealed in the upcoming days.

2017 was a great year for tech enthusiasts. We saw bezels shrinking on mobile phones to almost disappearing levels, and online retailers stepping up their game. Artificial Intelligence and digital assistants rose to new levels, and so did mobile photography, rivaling qualities that were a domain of much larger and more expensive cameras.
