One of the real pleasures of the DNA is how future-proof it feels. There's no phone out there that feels like a big upgrade. Granted, a bigger battery would be nice, and so would stereo speakers, but that's it.
I think I'm going to wait out this current crop of phones (carrying some crazy and unexpected release), but if I do buy a phone from this generation, it'll either be a Moto X or a G2. Moto X for the customization and smart features & the G2 for camera quality, screen quality, & battery size.
