Windows Central Question

I currently have a Nokia Lumia 928 on Verizon. It's a really nice phone and there aren't many phones out there right now that are better. That being said, I'm due for an upgrade in a few phones around April-June. Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn't produced any new flagship Lumia devices recently or any flagship Windows phones for awhile. To make matters worse, Verizon has quite a limited selection of Windows Phones and I don't know what their plans are going forward with Windows 10 phones or if there'll even be a flagship Windows 10 device.

So assuming a worst case scenario where Microsoft doesn't produce any flagship Windows Phone device this year and continues sticking to low-mid range phones, which of the following Verizon Windows Phones would be a good replacement for my Luma 928? Or should I just stick to my 928 and wait another year or so and hope for a flagship phone?

1. Samsung ATIV SE
2. HTC One M8
3. Nokia Lumia Icon (In-Store Only)

Considering these phones are all like a year old at this point, I'm hoping Microsoft will make a new Windows Phone that can be considered a true upgrade from my 928. Otherwise, I might consider sticking with my 928 for another year or two. What do you guys think?

I am pretty sure there will be a high end WP right around the corner to accompany the W10 announcement. It will be a bad strategy on their part to unveil a major upgrade without a flagship to showcase it...
In the phones u listed though, if u can live with the limited storage and mediocre battery life of 930 then its the best choice considering the bundled apps and future support.

The M8 for Windows is the newest flagship windows phone device on Verizon. It is not even 6 months old. I have one and its a very solid device with a speedy processor, great speakers, and good looks. I got mine just before Christmas and it has been performing flawlessly.
