날씨가 많이 추워졌어요.

독감 환자가 많이 늘었다고 하니 다들 감기 조심하세요~


이번주 주제는 휴대폰이네요.

여러분은 지금 쓰고 있는 cell phone을 사용한지 얼마나 되신건가요?

오늘의 스크립트를 보면서 함께 생각해보아요.


Many people are holding onto their old phones longer instead of rushing out to buy the latest model of phone. What are the advantages or disadvantages of getting the latest model?



                                                              Andrew Orlowski, The Register

 He explains why people are holding onto their phones longer instead of rushing out to buy the latest model of phone.

    

What's happened is that prices have gone up at the high end.

And it's kind of a cycle where people hang onto their phones for longer, therefore manufacturers charge more.

Then people hang onto them longer to justify that higher purchase.

 

 

So big brand names like iPhone and Samsung make phones at the high end of the market meaning the expensive ones.

So once people have bought a handset, they hang on to it! If you hang onto something, you keep it. I've been hanging onto my phone for a couple of years and am hoping I won't need to change it for another year or so, at least.

But what happens is, if people aren't replacing their phones, the phone manufacturers don't make a big enough profit. So they start charging more

 

Rob

and this, in turn, makes people hang onto their phones even longer! So that's why Andrew Orlowski calls it a cycle that's where one event leads to another, and then often repeats itself.

 

Andrew Orlowski, The Register

I think it's a very mature market now. And you have to compare, say, a £900 Galaxy Note or a £1000 iPhone with a spectacular TV you cana 49 inch TV you can get for £450. It no longer has that kind of must-have lustre that it might have had 4 or 5 years ago.

 

 

I love shiny new things, especially when it's a p***e of new tech. But £1000 is a lot of money for a phone. A spectacular 49-inch TV for only £450 sounds like a bargain though! My TV only has a 30-inch screen.

 

Although research also highlighted that this age group tended to use their smartphones less than younger people.The study was based on a sample of 1,163 people questioned between May and June in 2017.
