Though it is not clear whether teens go to elite restaurants or other hangout places, but they certainly spend more money on food.

Gadgets, including expensive phones such as iPhone, are also hot favorite when it comes to 'showing off'.

Researchers insist that expensive phones are where teen preening is at, the report added.
