I agree, a Nexus -- or at least the new "Nexus User Experience" thing -- 
is the way to go on Android.

If you want pricey, I'd go with a GS4 or HTC One with Nexus User 
Experience, or maybe a new Droid.  Otherwise, probably a Nexus 4.

As a data point, I'm on a Nexus S 4G.  Even though it's a little older, 
it's still running great, and runs Jellybean nice and fast.  Very easy 
to root and ROM -- I'm running the latest Cyanogen, which is a lot like 
stock, only nicer.

The NS4G usually get a full day out of the battery on a regular day.  If 
I'm out and about running the camera or GPS a lot, I carry a spare 
battery.  I bought a two-pack and a charger on Amazon.  Having a 
swappable battery comes in handy, especially when traveling.

I've got an N7, too.  Here it is at Noisebridge:

totally worth buying the dock, even though it seems extravagant.
