Technology advances according to human needs. Human civilization depends on technological
innovation. However, the well-being of civilization leads to scientific inventions adopting forms that
better suit people’s lifestyles. The two are mutually complementary and inseparable from each other.
Nevertheless, from a theoretical perspective, this phenomenon lacks significant evidence and
discussion. This study aims to establish a hypothetical model by identifying the connection between the
technology acceptance model (TAM) and the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS), using empirical
results to infer a causal relationship that may serve as a reference for future discourses of
technological lifestyles. We conducted a questionnaire with young 3G mobile devices consumers. We
distributed 450 questionnaires and successfully reclaimed a valid sample size of 393 (87.33%). In
addition, we employed the structural equation model (SEM) statistical analysis method. The results of
this study are as follows: (1) The validity and reliability of the hypothesis models achieved acceptable
levels; (2) the hypothetical model possessed a good fit; and (3) consumers’ willingness to use 3G/4G
mobile devices positively influences their life satisfaction.
Keywords: Technology Acceptance, Life Satisfaction, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM)
