    I was pondering what I'd do if my 950 was destroyed or lost or something. The options would seem to be:

    1. Get a new 950
    2. Get a newer Windows Phone (Alcatel Idol, HP X3)
    3. Get an Apple/Samsung/LG/Google flagship (i.e. $700 and up)
    4. Get a Chinese "affordable flagship" (i.e. $300-$500, OnePlus, Huawei, etc.)
    5. Get something much cheaper (i.e. $100-$200, Lumia 650, LG or Motorola budget phones)

    Although I really like my 950 (and don't expect it to die any time soon), I think I would go for a OnePlus 3T. I want good, snappy performance and a good camera. The reviews I've seen of the 3T are kind of selling me on it as a Lumia 950-comparable phone. I would not buy an iPhone 7 due to price, but I also think the camera doesn't compete with 950. But the 3T is pretty close! I always check new phones on GSMArena's photo comparison tool:

    The most telling spot for me is the currency bills - most phones seem to screw up the wavy lines on the pound note and the delicate cross-hatching on Lincoln. But the 3T comes really close to the 950's performance on that fine detail.

    What would you do?

    My answer isn't going to be a normal answer, as a chronic switcher.

    If it's my only daily driver, 950 for sure. In my case, to just have a Windows Phone, I would get a Lumia 650. If I wanted to try something new, I would get a Honor 8, if I didn't already own one.

    I do have an Honor 5x that I received from Amazon for free to review. I might use it for a while, but the camera just isn't good enough for me.

    I would put my SIM card into my second 950 that's still in a sealed box sitting on my bookshelf lol

    I bought my first 950 at launch and then the BOGO deal came last spring and I took advantage of that too for the XL.

    Ridiculous

    I'd pick up another 950 from Ebay, much like I did with my current one.
