Is $1000 really too much to spend on a mobile phone?

Episode 1426 (1:31:28)

Tom from Wilmington, NC
Apple iPhone X

Tom has been working in the technology industry for decades and he views his mobile phone differently than most. It's like a super computer in your pocket. Leo agrees saying that it's rapidly becoming the main computer for all our lives, and when you consider the time you spend on it over two years, even buying a phone for $1,000 isn't all that much money considering how much they are used. It's a great investment. But even then, $1000 is a lot to spend up front for anyone. The irony is that while the cost of mobile phones seem to be rising, the cost of a desktop is falling.
