Translation:I bought a new phone.
I have a question about tone pronunciation. Normally when I hear "手机" pronounced, the second syllable sounds high and flat. Here, the second syllable sounds low and indistinct, nearly identical to the tone of the first.
Is this normal, i.e. within the range of how native speakers would pronounce this, or is this a glitch of the computer voice?
"Phone" is certainly less precise.
However, I'm not sure if you're aware, but most of the Anglosphere uses the term "cell phone" or the term "mobile phone". The word "handphone" seems to be used only in certain countries in southeast Asia (probably as a calque from Chinese).
