If I broke my Google Pixel XL today.......... I'd buy another one with insurance monies because it's the best phone I've owned. Great camera, battery, and absolutely buttery smooth. Won't be upgrading for quite a while.

Man, I wish my Meizu M3s would break today. Thing is, I would replace it with another el-cheapo option until I see what the new iPhone 8 looks like. Then I'll make up my mind.

If I broke my iphone 7 I'd try and limp on on a backup phone till the 8 is out. Fairly invested in apple, and happy with it.

If I broke my Samsung J5Prime today I'd replace it with another -- does everything I'd ever need to do, fine camera, superb battery life, and cheap!

Admittedly I only put that part in for a reaction... some people just can't help themselves.

i have an Umi Z and i would get another one, performance is the same as an S7, deca core 2.6Ghz 4GB , full metal body , fast charge and it runs on pure Android 7 , all for under $300.

 

 

 

 

Does this have the LTE 700Mhz band? (band 28 I think). I'm looking at these cheaper chinese phones, but it looks like only the Xiaomi note 3 special global edition has that band.

Wish they'd put the latest and greatest processor in one of those - would make much more sense

If I broke my Xperia Z5 Premium, I'd replace it with the Xperia XZ Premium. Coz Sony.



My XZ became broken in my mind once the XZ Premium became available so I got the XZP in Hong Kong when I was there recently.

Coz Sony ++

If I broke my Samsung J1 Ace, I'd buy a Samsung J1 (2016), because it only costs a J1 price to replace :o) The RAM is enough for Youtube watching, messaging and social media (same goes for the quad-core CPU). Storage is big enough to handle a large off-line Google maps file for use as a GPS, and can take a 64GB microSD for all the social media pics. But mainly, because it's cheap to break.

If I broke my Xiaomi Redmi Note (1) today I'd replace with Xiaomi Redmi 3X, or is the Redmi 4 out yet?
