29 May 2017, Singapore – A survey conducted for The PC Show, happening from 1 – 4 June at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, has revealed that while most consumers look for computers and laptops during a sale (58.9%), four out of five consumers (86%) say they cannot live without their mobile phones and they’ll replace them every two years, or less (58%).
With the prevalence of mobile phones, 44.9% selected social media apps as the must-have app on their phones. According to the results, social media takes precedence over the news & magazines app category (3.6%).
When it comes to making a purchase for electronic gadgets, 39% selected Quality as a priority and Price as a secondary factor (31%).
Gillian Loh, Project Manager for show organiser Lines Exposition and Management Services, said: “A defining feature of technology is the pace at which it develops and evolves, and with it the consumers buying it! We did this survey to make sure we’re ahead on what the technology needs amongst today’s consumers really are. As the longest running consumer tech show, we are proud to bring the latest gadgets at the best prices to our visitors year on year.”
