I'm looking for a solid android phone for my mother. Mid 50s - first smart phone. I've always had and will always go android because I love them. Had the OG and now the GNex. I want her to go android because of the sync and connectivity she'd have with my sis and I. I'm leaning, however, towards an iPhone for a couple reasons. First the size. It's perfect for her. 2nd the OS. Apple is dumbed down enough for a person of her age.
My question is this; is there a comparable phone in android that is of similar size (4in or below) with solid hardware and good battery life? Oh! And it is for Verizon!
