Dear Apple and Samsung, $1,000 is way too much for a smartphone, consumers say

For Bill Wilson, it’s simple. He won’t pay $1,000 for a smartphone. Period.  Wilson is in ample company. This week’s earnings reports for Apple and Samsung both showed a clear trend: consumer resistance to the ever-growing high prices of premium smartphones.
