All hail the new king of tech
Tech Brand of the Year 2014

You have a favourite tech brand. A soft spot, almost. And whenever it releases anything new and shiny, you’re among the first to go grab it. If you’re guilty of that put up your hand.

The votes have been tallied and here's your winning tech brand.

Google

Google

Google may have had a few tech hit and misses when it comes to products, but the company’s been on the comeback in recent years. Its Nexus range has been one of the company’s strongest product line-ups. Then there's Android, Google Play and that wonderful pair of glasses. Need we say more?

Samsung

Samsung

We can safely say Samsung has been the biggest rival to Apple, especially when considering the take-up of its smartphones. This South Korean multinational conglomerate has been trying to outdo and outshine itself every single year in terms of creating better and more powerful devices. Has it lived up to its aim? You be the judge!

Sony

Sony

Sony’s TVs, cameras and PlayStations have always been in the spotlight over the years but now, the company’s expanding its reach. Its Xperia range has reached top mobile status, and it’s also forayed into the wearable devices space, too. We’re excited to see what else it has for us.   

Canon

Canon

Nobody does printers better than Canon, that’s according to the word in the tech sphere. But of course, there’s Canon’s camera range that has captured our hearts too. The digital imaging giant has been focusing on both of these categories in 2014. Has it proven to be the master of its trade? 

HTC

HTC

HTC’s getting adventurous with its products – it’s recently unveiled the HTC Desire Eye, a smartphone that puts a focus on selfies and its first non-smartphone in years, the RE action camera. Will taking a leap of faith and trying something new prove to be fruitful? 

LG

LG

No one would have projected LG to be where it’s at now a few years ago. The company’s made significant additions to its range, including smartwatch models, and has stepped up its game (big time) in the smartphone and TV space. And by the looks of it, the company’s not slowing down soon.

Microsoft

Microsoft

Microsoft’s still in the game - it now owns Nokia and recently unveiled a new fitness tracker (better late than never, right?). With quality in almost every tech category possible, is Microsoft still one to watch out for?
