Handheld VHF radios

I have a Standard Horizon fixed VHF that I have been very happy with.
However, I also have a Standard Horizon handheld that has been nothing but trouble. Battery doesn''t last and it periodically locks up and requires a trip back to the factory.
Practical Sailor seems to recommend ICOM for handhelds. I know ICOM''s reputation in the hand-held ham ranks is wonderful. I am seriously considering replacing mine with an ICOM in the next 30 days or so.
