HTC One Longevity - Is it still worth a 2 year contract?

I am a Verizon customer who has been drooling over the HTC One for months now. It has sadly taken roughly 6 months to get onto my carrier. Should I even consider purchasing a phone this old? I am afraid the clock of obsolescence will catch up to me much quicker. I guess I would get the Moto X if it had Moto Maker but alas.
