Looking for a phone but for an economic phone enthusiast.

I am looking for a phone off contract. I love my Macbook air, but I am not sure the iPhone is for me.

Last time I checked I found the Nexus 4 to have what I want, but there is still quite a few month until I will have the money ready, so I thought I would ask you guys what you would suggest.

It seems that the Nexus 4 camera sucks compared to the new phones and given that I'll be waiting a couple of month, so what would be the next interesting thing to look at?

If it is possible I really want stock android as I am totally googled up and enjoying it.

But the price range from the Nexus 4 vs the HTC One or Galaxy s4 seems really huge to me.

Any other suggestions or tips are more than welcome.

Best regards,
