Tonight we'll reveal the winners in our six categories at a special event taking place in a secret swanky London venue.

Categories include Best Phone, Best Tablet, Best Value Phone, Best Value Tablet, Best Innovation and Best Smartwatch – all of which have been decided by nine expert judges. Here's an introduction to those we chose for the task.

Palpable excitment

We'll also be revealing the winner of our Best App competition voted for by you – the TechRadar readers.
