Battery Low [Q] What future phones could replace your rezound?

I am curious what phones y'all think could replace your rezound!

As of now there isn't much better on the one handed market than the Rezound, I specifically to Verizon for it and its a two year old device!

I am a one handed/one thumbed user and hate these huge 5+ inch screen flagship phones, and all of the current smaller phones are watered down and/or have no external storage.

edit: just found a 32gb version of the moto x. although thats not enough space for me I could make it work once the device gets cheaper.

I got my DNA given to me. It is right at 5" though. I do use one hand on it. It is thinner than my Rezzy. Downside is no SD slot, but you can always use the OTG capabilities of the phone.

Size out of the mix, the newer phones are way snappier and have extremely longer battery life. I would be lucky to have 2.5hrs screen time with my Rez, the DNA gets between 3.5-4.5hrs screen time. The phones that came out this year I have seen some get over 5-6hrs.

Sent from my DNA using my mind.

I moved to the HTC one and couldn't be happier. 4.7" screen seems to be perfect for me. After the bionic I wrote Motorola off.

Ordered my moto x on 12/24 thru moto maker. After playing with it in the store and the $150.00 discount thru the today show. Winning...

Replaced my Rez with a Nexus 5 and switched to T-Mobile. No regrets so far, its an amazing phone with much better...everything. Especially battery life.

TBH I want to go to a phablet next, but for smaller phones I think the Moto G or Moto X would be pretty good. They're extremely close in physical size if you compare the numbers.

Moto G:
h: 129.9mm
w: 65.9mm
d: 11.6mm
wt: 143g

Rezound:
h: 129mm
w: 65.5mm
d: 13.7mm
wt: 170.1g

I went with the HTC One and I am loving it so far. But I'm very enticed by the Moto X as well. Those are the top two for me right now on the market for Verizon

Personally, I would go with the LG G2...

h: 138.5
w: 70.9
d: 8.9
wt: 143g

It is a bit taller, slightly wider, and yet thinner and lighter with amazing battery life. Again the best bet it is to go to a store and play with the various models, that would always be your best bet.

I tried out the Samsung GS4 for a while but found it just a bit too large. I ended up deciding that size and usability trumped the removable battery and SD card, so I bought a Moto X Dev Edition and have been really happy with it.
