Helix Sophomore Jake Wilcox said that he wanted his phone more than anything because it makes him look good and he says that he is busier on his phone and other devices like his computer and iPod because they are fun and he likes to play games and watch YouTube.
Wilcox purchased a Samsung 7 because of its cool features. He especially likes its big screen. Wilcox said people don't need their phones, they just want them and he wouldn’t mind just having a flip phone. If he had one, at least he could contact his parents and family members in case of an emergency. Jake said he wouldn’t care if he had a flip phone if that was his only choice.
Kierra Carlson, a junior at Griswold High School, said that she wanted her phone more than she needed it because she wanted to talk to all her friends. She wants to be able to look at social media and to contact her family and the cops if an emergency happened. She figures that if she crashed her car, she couldn't tell anyone that she needed help without a phone.
Kierra has a phone and she really hates flip phones because she likes the touch screens better. She thinks that everyone wants a phone because they mean a lot to people. She said that having a phone can help in an emergency and she can talk to her friends everyday.
Many people want their phones more than they need them, because they just want to talk to their friends.
People will use their phones when they need them. They are on their phones all the time and they like to stay up with social media so they know when something is going on. Teenagers also like to play games on their phones. Most people want their phones more than they need them. Sure, people need them for safety reasons, but that’s not the only reason a teen wants a phone.
An article published at huffingtonpost.com said that most people “live” on their phones all day. Teenagers between 14-18 play on their phones about 68% per 24 hours. Ages 55 and older play on their phones about 36 % of the day.
About 58% of smartphone users don't go an hour without checking their phones. According to seomworld.com, 30% admit that they check their phones during every meal and on average, people send or receive messages 150 times a day. According to time.com, about 40% percent of people play on their phone even while they are in the bathroom.
While there are many reasons to dislike phones, the good thing about phones are that they can help people with their safety.
The bad side is that people aren’t learning things when they play on their phones all day everyday, and that people want a phone more than they need it.
