Had both the select and explorer.
Once the Sapphire Reserve came along, I canceled the explorer but kept the select.
Would've used the select more, but there's a foreign transaction fee and at most 2X for star alliance purchase.
On the Sapphire you get 3X for ALL transportations, dining, hotels, and that 100,000 bonus (now only 50,000). I use this card for all Non-United purchases, using the select for only gas, groceries, and home improvement in the US.
Oh, and the AMEX SPG for staying at SPG properties, using the Sapphire for non-SPG.
