At the beginning of each year, it is a tradition to eagerly release the gifts received at Christmas. According to Celside’s 2021 Christmas Consumption study, it seems that we have released many technological devices since these have been the third option in terms of preferred gifts (40%), only preceded by clothing and accessories (77%) and cosmetics (42%).
These data are not surprising since the use of technology is continuously increasing as the years go by, especially since 2020, the year in which, after the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to connect to the Internet has grown.
In fact, in 2020, the number of Internet users in Spain increased by almost 4%, achieving a share of 93% of Spaniards who have Internet at home, according to the technology and society report presented by red.es.
Thanks to the new consumer regulations in Spain, electronic devices have a full three-year guarantee, although, in reality, their useful life is usually longer if we use them correctly. Therefore, ANOVO recommends users correct maintenance to preserve its good condition.
