What Verizon cell phone meets these requirements

I'm not really technical, and I don't do a lot with my phone. Right now I have an old Blackberry that can hardly do anything other than email, and Blackberry Messenger runs very slow on it.
-Easy to operate
-Good call quality
-Good battery life
-Speakerphone, preferably one that is loud and clear
-International calling capability
-Allows internet access
Desirable, but not required:
-Talk to type feature (if that's what that's called)
-Easy to take photos of decent quality
-You can't easily make mistakes with it; for example, I've heard friends complain that pressing the touchscreen on their phones during a call messes things up.
Again, I'm not really technical. I just want a phone for my email and an occasional call. Would love if it could do more but it must do email and calls reasonably well. I don't want the bells and whistles if the basic function of the phone is no good. I'm partial to Blackberry since I've used that for years, but I am wondering what else might be out there...
