What's up with the "phone as status symbol"? Nowadays even homeless and indians have phones
>>

>>
>>83830017
>poors

>>
Normies are literally retarded, some even use glasses with 0º correction lenses just as a fashion accessory.

Even masks are a fashion piece now.
Who cares, just move along.

>>83830067
poorfags only have enough money to buy a shiny phone
actually rich people use cars and houses to see how much wealth they have
>>
>>83830260
>to see how much wealth they have
they can just check their bank account?
>>
>>83830179
>imagine wearing a mask
lmao, cuck
>>
apparently women are turned off if you use an android now because you must obviously be poor if you "can't afford" iphones because "why else would you not have one"
>>
>>83830067
Have you never seen poor people spend a lot of money just to buy a Mercedes, because it gives them "status"?
>>
>>83830017
But how is that supposed to work when literally everyone can get the shit? I didn't have a job in 5 years and could just walk to the store and get iPhone Pro Max XSZ or some Galaxy Flip Twist with a contract.

Maybe they are a status symbol in 3rd world countries but in the first world nobody cares.

Like I said, it's a retard thing, not all poor people do that.

No phone is a status symbol.

They're not at all. Only poorfags (most of /g/) even think about this. People with decent jobs obviously use iPhones most the time but that's just cause they're clearly the better option at the moment and if someone uses an android it's a bit odd but no one's going to care other than people having to use messenger/whatsapp instead of iMessage

Meanwhile if we look at the peer reviewed, fact checked, reputable evidence from well known and respected institutions, we find the opposite of your premises to be true.
>>
>>83829836
I don't think it's a status symbol anymore, minimum wage poorfags always get the latest iphone by paying in installments
>>
>>83830486
Yes, with debts. Indians do that all the time just to impress other indians.
And >>83830526 is right
>>
>can get it on 24 monthly payments less than 40$ a month
Woah what a status symbol
>>
>>83830539
Yeah, most likely … although I thought even kids are over the train of thought.
>>
>>83829836
This is not true in the slightest.

good mornings sirs,
please do the needful and buy Xaoimi fuwa

It's something normalfags understand. They don't even know cars well enough these days. So they judge you by what they do know is expensive.
>>
>>83829836
They were status symbols when I was like 10, but nobody has given a shit since then. Now I'm 23 and everyone has a smartphone

Some people just receive them as gifts. I was gifted a 4S back when 5 was the new shit during my early jobless years.
>>
>>83829836

Having fag, tranny, and black friends is the status symbol these days.

White trust fund babies collect those like baseball cards.
>>
>>83829836
Who actually looks at their phone as a status symbol beyond insecure /g/tards who have no hobbies beyond low-budget consumption? Normies don't give a shit about tech toys like this, I carry 20 year old Windows CE PDA around at work and nobody even bats an eye.
