Mobile phones are a big part of our lives, and since the birth of the smartphones, most Malaysians practically cannot live without their phones in their hands!

Don’t try to deny it. Imagine your phone running out of battery or that you forgot to bring it out with you this morning.

With that being said, each person has their own way of using their mobile. So here are some of the most common types of mobile phone users in Malaysia.

But before that, we’re just going to cunningly inform you that you can get yourself a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for only RM9.90 during Shopee 9.9 Mobile Shopping DayYup, the one that blessed you with free emoji pillows is back again! #justsayin


1. The Avid Texter

These are the ones that once you send them a message, you KNOW you can expect a reply within seconds. Heck, when you’re about to text them on any messaging app such as WhatsApp or Messenger, you’ll see them already ‘online’ or ‘active’!

They probably even grew a third eye because they will be walking and texting at the same time yet they have the ability to evade swiftly in the sea of people.

Needless to say, they are able to juggle their conversations very well and texting more than 3 people at once is a piece of cake for them.

2. The Social Media Addict

These are the users that actively post updates and scroll through their social media feed for hours. It could be Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, you name it. The addiction often even gets to the point where they’ve run out of feed and they don’t even know why they’re still scrolling, but they just do.

Social media addicts are guilty for checking on their notifications every few minutes. For Malaysians, the common habits these addicts have are: taking pictures of your food or even your friend’s food before eating them, posting a picture of your passport whenever you travel, updating OOTDs daily or snapchatting every single thing you do.

3. The Stalker

These are the ones who will make sure to go through a person’s social media profile or account, regardless whether they are friends, new acquaintances or complete strangers. They could scroll to an Instagram picture that was posted over 2 years ago or find out what someone did for their last birthday if they want to. Just don’t accidentally hit the like button!

In general, they’d have a rough idea of what you like or how your life has been. And sometimes, having conversations with them may lead to some surprises when they reveal just how much they know about you.

As creepy as it is, you kinda have to give props to their detective work. Besides, I’m sure we’ve all been there at least once in our lives. Remember that super cute girl/guy you were totally crushing on?


4. The Photo Enthusiast

One of the main reasons they own a phone is because of the ‘camera’ function. Whether it’s taking Instagram worthy shots, snaps of their daily lives or tons of selfies, they love taking pictures!

5. The Mobile Gamer

Mobile gamers are always glued to their phone, ESPECIALLY since the launch of Pokemon Go. They are active on their games for countless hours daily to claim rewards, complete quests or missions and level up. Some will even go to the extent of spending huge amounts of money to obtain rare items and level up quicker just so they can be better than others. And that’s when you know, they’re a crazy addict. Also, expect to see more notifications and invites from them on your social media.

They are completely fine being alone by themselves because they have their games to occupy their time. Besides, they only need their one true friend, the power bank.

New high score whuuut!


6. The CBB aka ‘Can’t be bothered’

These are the mobile users that you question their possession of a phone since they basically don’t use them anyway. If you send them a message in the morning, expect to receive a reply later that night. Nope, they’re not even busy, they’re just CBB. No extensive pun intended.

It’s common for people to ask them, “Why do you even own a phone?”

Truth is, these users don’t feel the need to have their phones beside them 24/7 nor feel the urge to check their social media frequently.

So tough luck trying to reach them, even through calls! And good luck to the CBB in finding a relationship.

7. The ‘in-trend’

These are the ones who only uses the latest iPhone or android models. Whether it’s to show off or it’s because of their love for the newest gadgets, you can bet your money that they will be trying their best to get their hands on that shiny new model when it’s launched. Even if it meant lining up for hours at the store or waiting up all night for the online pre-order.

8. The Old School

Somewhat rare and probably only exist for older parents/grandparents, the ‘old school’ users tend to use ancient looking phones. You know that Nokia 3310 where you play Snake with.

And even if they own a smart phone, they only use the basic functions of call or sms. These users do not find the need to use this whole ‘Internet’ thing but are contented with what life has to offer.

9. The Shopaholics

Shopaholics who browse through physical retail store by store are a thing of the past. Malaysians are smart and they know that online shopping is the way to go! I mean Malaysia was ranked top in the WORLD for online shopping by global information and insights company Nielsen in 2014 for a reason.
