Backstory:

I have a Captivate, and it's still running great, just not speedy on the transitions anymore. Some days I can stand holding out, but I seriously doubt CES will deliver any cell phones.

Obviously the Optimus G or the One X is the better choice; But I still find those too big. If I weren't on AT&T, the Razr M would be my choice. As is, the AtrixHD is much bulkier.

At this point, I'm leaning towards the Escape; it might have a crappy screen, but it's not worse that what I've got right now. Big thing for me: battery life, especially replaceable.

Big question though: will the 960x540 screen last 2 more versions of Android? Will the lack of phone-adoption mean I'll never get CM10++ on it? I'm not against the TL, but it's battery life is said to be low, and not replaceable.
