For a product to be deserving of the Zero1 Award, it must be the unambiguous best-performing product in its category. While our rigorous testing procedure does incorporate all parameters of a product, namely performance, design, build quality, feature set and pricing; the Zero1 Awards cares for nothing but pure performance.
The Digit Test Labs honors products with multiple awards based on Performance (Best Performer Award), Pricing (Best Buy Award) and innovation (Editor’s Pick) as and when we come across deserving products on a monthly basis. However, the Zero1 Awards holds a more distinct position for being awarded only once every year, and you can rest assured that we only consider the best performing product from the entire year.
