Today, more and more Chinese can't leave phones. Many of them, including old people, use phone apps to keep in touch and make more friends. They also use phones for shopping and searching information as phones are easy to carry. Besides, the communication by mobile apps is cheaper than that by traditional phones. However, the new trend makes people rely on phones too much. In fact,some young men have become so addicted that they ignore the face-to-face communication with their family members and friends.
In the past few years, mobile payment market has developed rapidly in China. With the appearance of mobile internet, shopping on phones has become a trend. The young men between 18 and 30 make up the biggest group of users of the mobile payment market. As the payment by phone is very easy，many consumers are willing to use phones to pay for shopping, not willing to use cash or credit cards. To encourage people to buy more, many shops give discount to the customers who use mobile payment.Experts predict that China' s mobile payment market has great potential of development.
