    My current 950xl's front camera got busted, and looked for weeks for a replacement phone, including androids.

    Eventually settled got another 950xl.

    Why?

    It was $265.

    That's the best cheapest phone I could possibly get, with the best camera at that price range.

    In the end, didn't feel like ponying up >$500 for an android flagship.

    I guess part of me is waiting for the Surface phone too. That's something I would pay bug bucks for.

    You sure you wouldn't have been better off getting the camera module replaced?

    Dual sim. I'm not adept enough to open up phones amd change parts.

    I'm using the new phone now! Selling my old one on eBay.

    Multiple phones is cool, but if there's an option to fix something, whether you pay someone to do it, or you do it yourself, it should be tried.

    Should be and can be are two different things. I replaced the LCD on my 1520 last night so I am not unfamiliar to do things like that. Others might not be, or might not have the capacity to do so.

    I'm aware that not everyone knows how to repair phones, which is why I also suggested that he take it to an official repairsmen to get it done.
