    So, I had the Original Droid and it was well supported.
    When it was dying, there was alot of talk about the GNex and how it would be well supported.
    (And it is, I have 4.4.4 on it now, sweet)
    Now that my GNex is dying, what phone looks like it will be next one to be actively supported by the Developer/ROM community?

    Nexus6?
    Note4?
    Something else?

    You'll always have loads of support for the Nexus devices. The main flagships usually have a good deal of development as well. You can't go wrong with any of the the flagships, its more so a matter of ease of modifying.

    on the move..

    And how easy is it to work on phones without a removable battery. I mean, if my GNex is acting, I pull the battery. How reliable is the hard-reset on phones without a removable battery?

    I have the LG G2 currently and have never had an issue with a non removable battery. I just hold down the power button to force a reset, or hold certain key combinations to get into recovery. As long as you don't hard brick by flashing something from a different model, or different device completely, you're usually going to be able to recover.
