    I am (or "almost" was I should say) an IPhone user and have been for over 3 years. I am done with them!
    I am looking into switching to Android. I am looking for Android phone suggestions based on the following criteria:
    -Good battery life (minimum 10 hrs)
    -Phone needs to have a good camera/video recording
    -Good display
    -Easy to handle/use , considering I am switching from an Iphone
    -I will be using the phone mainly for emails, social media, and as a camera/video camera.
    My top 3 picks are : HTC 1, LG G2 and Nexus 5. HELP!!! 85% of people I know have iPhone and the 15 % left use Samsung, which I do not like.
    I have a Galaxy S4 from work and I do not like the way the phone handles at all!

    Welcome to Android Central
    Of the top 3 phones you mentioned, I would go with the Nexus 5. It receives updates as soon as they're released, months ahead of the other two. Display is right in between both of them in terms of size and quality.
    The software experience is going to be the smoothest, which would be ideal coming from iOS

    I got to the Nexus 5 by way of a Samsung Galaxy S4 from an iPhone 5. I would highly recommend the Nexus 5. I think the vanilla Android that you get on the Nexus is great for the swap. The screen is just awesome. You'll never miss your iPhone on that point. The battery is one of the weaker points, but it plenty to get me through the day. I can't speak much about the camera because I haven't played with it to much. Overall, considering what you get for the price ($399 for the 32gb on the play store) you really cannot beat it.

    Another vote for the Nexus 5. The camera is excellent, the device itself is superfast and smooth, and the screen is great. You should expect about 4 hours of total screen-on time (which is fairly typical for devices that don't have a huge or extended battery), and with moderate use, I always get through the day with about 40% of battery left.

    If you like more added features, the G2 is worth a look--the hardware is very similar to the Nexus 5, but with a bigger battery. The button placement on the back takes some getting used to, and you'd have to see if you like LG's modifications to the Android interface, which at least aren't as extensive as Samsung's.
