Whether you're talking about computers, phones, smartwatches, or anything else, switching from one operating system to another is never an easy task. Having to learn all of the ins, outs, and idiosyncrasies of a foreign platform takes a lot of time and patience, and this is especially true when making the jump from iOS to Android.

One of our forum users recently shared that their wife is ready to leave her iPhone 6S Plus for something in camp Android, and as you'd probably expect, the community was quick to come to the rescue with some of their top recommendations.

Then most attractive point is its double rear cameras, and if your wife loves taking self-portraits, it's also a good choice. But the only drawback I think it is too heavy for a girl. Anyway, I got accustomed to it.:-[


Here's an odd recommendation. The Essential Phone. It has gotten a ton of updates and it's a better phone than it was at launch, but it's still not entirely perfect. The software gremlins are more-or-less sorted but some still remain and while the camera app has improved, you will still need the Google Camera HDR+ port in order to get good images out of it. But if hardware design is your...


Now, we'd like to hear from you – What Android phone would you recommend to someone coming from iOS?
