So Macrumors just posted market data that shows Android phones really growing and becoming much larger market than iPhone. Now that the iPhone is on Verizon and basically available everywhere else that means that people with an option to buy an iPhone are going the Android route. My GF is considering a new smartphone on Verizon and I can't really see any of the android phones as being competitive to the iPhone. So I'm wonder what phones people here think are really competitive to the iPhone and why? Battery life is key for my GF as her first experience with Android version 1 was a complete disaster requiring a second charge everyday even on low usage days. That phone lasted two months, then broke after being dropped three feet onto carpeting. It was back to blackberry but that was before iPhone was out on Verizon. I'm looking at the current crop of android phones and I frankly don't trust them compared to the iPhone. I'm wondering why they are selling so well. Is it mainly the physical keyboard?
