screen durability sucks
15 September 2014
Summary: My son got this phone because it was supposed to be tough and rugged. He had the phone about three weeks and dropped it from a chair and it fell onto dirt surface, not even asphalt, rocks, etc.
Summary: I use this as a work issued phone... Not impressed at all. As a personal Android fanatic, I was excited to give up my company issued blackberry for a new Android smartphone. Sadly, I would switch back. Maybe I'm just spoiled with the much faster, larger Android phones that I have personally bought, but this was nothing to write home about. Unless you need this for its ability to survive an atomic blast, I would recommend looking elsewhere. Not a fan.
Summary: The phone itself is excellent as far as use and battery life compared to others I've owned. Only complaint is the warranty on it. Dropped it into a cooler of water, was in the water for less than 1 minute. When it stopped working took it to the dealer and was told that it would not be replaced since it had been in water. When I pointed out that it was water resistance, was told that its resistance only if all the ports are closed.
Durable, not stable or capable. high end cost, low end performance.

Summary: Not a capable or stable device. I was a dedicated blackberry fan, expecting a lot out of my devices. I knew this device had a smaller screen and a slower processor, but I expected that to equal better battery life--it doesn't. The phone isn't waterproof, but water resistant, so it's reasonably durable. I dropped my 8330 dozens of times: on the bus, on the sidewalk, so military spec isn't required for a good phone. Anyways, the device crashed under mild load constantly.
Summary: I wish i didnt buy it. If i were to go smart phone I would go with an Iphone no questions asked. Since i only really need a waterproof phone I would get the Casio that one step down from a smart phone......This phone is frustration on a daily basis......
Pros: waterproof. THATS IT!!!!! BUY A I PHONE! I have owned both and they are WORLDS APART. COMMANDO IS TERRIBLE
Cons: everything else. Bloatware SLOW AS IT COULD BE. The Touch not sensitive, screens take forever to load. Not sensitive - makes things like calculator and calender a real pain. Worst texting phone i have ever seen, does not auto save. Would not buy....
Excerpt: Im a business owner and a Student I use smart phones for their intened use (email, callenders, Internet, Social networking, Pictures, Phone calls, and other miscellaneous apps). Im not very much into games so i havent installed any and this is what i have noticed with this phone in a short time the operating system is slow, hard to text with, the G'z gear is a waste of memory space (no Applicable uses, can find better apps to download).
Pros: its toughand looks Awesome
Cons: hard to text, constantly freezes, wont connect to computer, camera doesnt zoom or take very good pictures, Verizon has Horrible customer service with dealing with phone issues, starts Apps by itself, takes battery life, Not for business
I love the Android O/S, but this is the worst of them that I've had.

Summary: Got this due to all the rave reviews and my previous Android phones, really wish I hadn't. I'm on my third replacement in 5 months. When it works, it is great. BUT, there are some huge flaws. My original phone was brand new, and had dead spots on the screen. Past that, all of them that I have had have had very poor battery life. I can get about 2 hours of talk time or music. I charge overnight, and even with none to minimal use, the battery will be dead within 14 hours.
