The 'Smart Stack' widget also looks interesting, with a similar philosophy to Google's 'At a glance' widget, in that its content changes based on what time it is, what you're up to, and what's coming up. So it surfaces what you need to see. Kind of how Windows Phone's live tiles were originally envisioned.

The jury's still out on 'the best way for a Windows phone user to go' after Lumias. You'll have your own ideas, of course, but at this point I'd either say an iPhone 11 Pro (or Pro Max) or perhaps a Huawei P40 Pro (which comes with Bing and most of the MS apps and services pre-loaded), both of which have stonking cameras and battery life.
