New Android phone...what should I get?

As an experiment, I recently switched from an iPhone 4S to a Galaxy Nexus. I love Apple, but wanted to try Android out again. Since iOS 7 is incredibly dissapointing, I'm going to stick with an Android phone. 4.2 is just fantastic. My contract expires soon and I'm looking to get a new phone. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to get? What to avoid? I'm on Verizon and would like to stay with them, if possible. Should I wait for the HTC One?
