$10,000 would not change my life but I'd still have to consider the offer, if there were one. I've been enjoying the iPhone since the first model but $10k to switch to other phones that are also highly regarded? Maybe.
I'm not young but I still expect the iPhone (and similar devices) to become quaint vintage electronics within my lifetime, replaced by something cooler - maybe from Apple and maybe not - so I don't consider such a decision would have a "lifetime" impact.
Another potential in-my-lifetime scenario is the pessimistic one in which everything goes to crap and which phone we use becomes a non-issue.
