LG Nexus 4
Motorola Droid RAZR M
"Other" - I have a different favorite for this year!
Better or best is a matter of opinion most of the time. But besides battery and storage the Dna is better in every category. Better display, better processor, better sound, better radios, better camera,and in my opinion sense is better than touchwiz but to each his own.
I voted "other", my original Droid Razr, IMHO, is still one of the best phones out there.
In this last year I own/owned:
Original Droid Razr, simply one of the best.
Droid Razr Maxx HD, absolutely love this phone.
Samsung Galaxy S II, had quite a few issues with it.
Samsung GS III, awesome phone till I got the "GS3 sudden death"
Samsung Note II, Love everything about it, except the call quality. I can have the Razr & the Note 2 side by side and the Razr will have 5 bars and the Note will have 3.
