Casio G'zOne Commando Reviews
Th Casio gâ€™zOne Commando is the first Android entry into Casio and Verizonâ€™s lineup of rugged, world-proof handsets. The gâ€™zOne (thatâ€™s pronounced geeze-One) lineup is known for being built tough and resistant to water, dust, shock, and general abuse.
The Casio G'zOne Commando is a durable and rugged handset that is also an Android smartphone. It has a great suite of applications for outdoor enthusiasts.
As expensive as a flagship handset, the Commando offers military-grade resilience against drops, water, extreme cold, and other elements. But is it capable enough for everything else?
The Casio G'zOne Commando is not just another rugged phone. It's an Android smartphone with a decent 800 MHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera, and 3G Hot Spot capabilities. Casio has a good reputation for making very durable rugged phones and the Commando is no different.
Most rugged cell phones aren't smart, but the Casio G'zOne Commando is. It's Verizon's first Android smartphone we've seen that can take a beating, and it sports relatively high-end specs to boot.
I kind of want to throw the Casio G'zOne Commando. Or at least just drop it. Maybe kick it down the street a little. Can't decide if that's because it's rugged to the point where it's trying to pick a fight, or if it's because of the ridiculous name.
The Casio G'zOne Commando is a phone that knows what it is and what it isn't. It is not, for example, Casio's answer to the Galaxy S II or the EVO 3D - it simply doesn't have that much power under its rough, tough hood.
Attention adventurers: Your smartphone has arrived. The hardened Casio Gâ€™zOne Commando is so tough, the company says it can withstand 30 minutes under three feet of water. Oh really? Letâ€™s put it to the test.
Over the years, Casio has been known for producing rugged Push-to-Talk phones for Verizon Wireless, from the Type-V and Type-S to the Boulder, Rock, Brigade, and Ravine. But this time around Casio brings to the table something different, the Gâ€™zOne Commando â€“ a rugged Android smartphone.
Gotta Be Mobile
Smartphones are traditionally devices which we hold close and keep a watchful eye on when we could drop them, especially around water. ButÂ whatÂ aboutÂ adventurersÂ andÂ contractorsÂ that need a rough and tumble phone that can handle the elements including the occasional drop into a puddle or flowing stream?
