Sorry if this a topic that has already been hit on but I just can't get myself to make a decision! Here is my old post: Buy a nice used phone or cheap new phone - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com I'm looking for an older phone to bring the price down and these are the ones I've narrowed it down to. Here is what is key to me in order of importance:

1. Battery life. I currently have an HTC DNA and it lasts about 4 hours with average use and I'm sick of it. I don't need a phone to last me 3 days without a charge but I need it to last me through the day with decently heavy use no problem. Also, I'm going to have this phone 2-3 years and I want it to be able to make it through the day, hopefully.

2. Speed/screen/bells and whistles. It's 2015, I feel like a smartphone should be able to do some pretty cool things and look good doin it.

3. Camera. I use the camera a decent amount and I like being able to take a decent picture and not be shown up by my Iphone 6 friends.

Honestly I'm leaning tords the Maxx right now just cause of the battery, but I have head the screen is average and the camera is pretty weak. I'm just scared of getting another DNA-like phone that can't get me through the morning on one charge.

Thanks for any help!

The maxx will get you through the day, the screen may not be 4K but it is 720p HD at 1280X720 and 294ppi. Really in the PPI arena it's not that bad.

I always thought the MAXX's camera was pretty good. May not win any awards, but I was still impressed with pictures it took.

It was always pretty snappy as well.

I own a Droid Maxx, so I am a little partial to it. I don't know much about the other phones, other than they are great phones also. But here are some "bells & whistles" the Maxx has:
Moto Camera is an app: updated through the Play Store. You don't have to wait for OS updates. New camera update 2 days ago actually
Touch less Control.
Active Display: Once you are used to it you won't miss the blinking LED light any more.
Moto Assist: Sleep Mode, Meeting Mode, Driving Mode (reads texts out loud while driving).
Twist to open camera.
And of course a big battery.
Edit:
Moto Connect
Moto Migrate (awesome for transferring data from old phone to new phone).
NFC.
Scheduled to receive 5.0 Lollipop

I've had both the G2 and M8... Very solid phones... M8 with front speakers and sound quality is my choice.. Smooth and HTC did great with not over the top Sense

I say the G2 based on in hand feel, it just feels right. The M8 has great speakers and a much smoother UI IMO. So they each have something different going for them.
