Is this the phone for me?


I am about to finish a 2 yr contract so I am looking at a new phone. I am definitely not someone who needs the most cutting edge technology, but I like to have something decent. I never spend a ton of money on a new phone, and I'm not looking to change that right now. I am currently using a Droid Razr HD, which has been pretty good overall for me, though I really need more battery. I started looking on VZW website and they will give me the Droid Maxx for free with a new 2 yr contract. I know it's over a year old right now, but I definitely like the build of these phones so far. In my line of work, I like a solid, tough phone that holds up, not a piece of plastic that I will break-- gorilla glass and kevlar work for me. Plus, it has decent specs, right? The price is right too, so I am wondering--is there something else I should be considering? Thanks in advance for any advice.
I got the Droid Mass the day it was released. It is the best phone I have ever used.

I use a Tylt wireless charger by my desktop computer and never think about the battery ... ever. I measured I thee times and got three days each time.

The Droid Turbo is about to be announced and it will likely blow everything away. It has a 19megpixel camera. The cameras in all Motorola phones are pretty bad. Maybe it is corrected in the Turbo.

I think you should decide when you are going to replace the phone you are about to get and that will guide you.

Thanks Thom. I looked at the few posts in the Turbo forum, and as usual I figured I probably wouldn't be up for spending whatever they end up charging for it (even at the 2 yr contract price). I usually end up keeping my phone for the length of my 2 yr contract, so I guess I'm thinking about my next phone in the same way. I'm willing to spend something on it, just not top dollar.
I can get the 2nd gen Moto X for $100, but it doesn't have the battery life that is important to me.

It means to me ... the Droid Turbo is about to be announced.

I'm excited to see if the new Nexus 6 is released on Verizon. I don't NEED a new phone. My Maxx is still VERY nice (other than the two huge cracks in the screen from my wife dropping it, but I digress). However, if Shamu, Tattoo, o Who-Who comes out as a Nexus on Verizon with the rumored specs I will likely buy it on launch day.

The Droid Turbo sounds very nice but a Moto Nexus is too tempting to resist.
