Increasing number of people looking at iPhone equivalents

I assume by reading The Verge you are all tech aware individuals. As a tech aware individual I also assume you often get asked by your friends, family and colleagues about technology. A question I am hearing increasingly often is "what is the best iPhone equivalent?". Of course, answering any question starting 'what is the best...' is impossible, but I am wondering how you deal with this?

I have been asked so often recently that I decided to spend some time to create a Google+ post and gallery that highlights some of my favourite flagship devices.

Have anyone got any better ideas about presenting this kind of information to those that ask us for technology advice?
