Despite 54 percent of over-50s using a mobile daily, they are daunted by the prospect of buying one - as almost half of them claim to be confused by the terms used by store staff, the Daily Express reported.

Almost a third avoid technology shops all together.

"Technology can present all sorts of challenges for a customer: specifications, functionality, modifications; all changing at a fast pace, not to mention the jargon," Sam Perkins, telecoms director at Tesco which commissioned the survey, said.
