So you can pick it up pretty cheap with a new 2 year contract and be really happy for a little while. The next superphones to hit Verizon have not been announced yet, so we have to assume that they are at least a few months away (and probably longer in my opinion). So a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Lastly, economically it always makes sense to buy the newest/greatest phone available at the instant that your upgrade is available. The longer you wait to use your upgrade, the longer you postpone your next benefit and next one and next one, etc. So if you're happy locking in for another 2 years, then you should use your upgrade as soon as available for the best phone possible. Again, you can always resell it later.
I agree with you. If I were upgrading now I would probably get the DNA/One.
Although the battery concerns me only 2020mah/2300mah. LTE and that beast of a screen seems like it would chew that up in no time. Also I like sd slots, but seems like the current trend is not having them. I also like the Xperia Z, but no u.s. release date has been announced.
My upgrade hits in july so I am hoping the "X" phone is released around that time frame. The S4 also.
