Good if you absolutely need the bulletproof build.

Summary: This phone is good if you are only using it for a few apps. The outdoor features are great, but the processor can't handle much of a load and it freezes frequently when trying to multi-task. If this had been my first smartphone it might not have been a problem., but after using a Motorola DROID this was a letdown. On the brightside the compass works well and the phone is tough and durable.
Summary: It's a decent phone. It's not brand new and acts up only slightly. Mostly I think its an internet issue as far as what it can and won't do. Only thing I don't "like" is all the accounts it makes me open (again really an internet issue itself but that's life) and the delay or endless attempts at starting or playing videos (like internet machines of old-as if last year was old!).
Summary: Needed to replace my cell after I broke an unbreakable phone. Had no insurance and trade in time is along way off. Decided to try getting into a smart phone. Not too crazy with this one. Limited customization. Battery is OK compared to other smart phones. Not crazy about virtual key boards for typing. (my personal issue) Undecided as to weather I plan to upgrade to a better smart phone when it's time. Battery sent with this device was shot. had to replace very early on.
Summary: have the C771 Casio Commando, has some nice features but not the camera. When you click the shutter "you'll get a picture of what's going to happen 3 seconds from now", not the picture of your child (unless they're posing) as it happens. WAY TOO SLOW. Casio help says you cannot compare the speed to a camera on a Motorola phone or an I Phone, like comparing apples and oranges, HUH!!! A camera should be able to take a quick picture.
Pros: tough, nice looking
Cons: really slow shutter speed on camera, you get a picture of what's going to happen 3 seconds from now., task bar on top of phone menu, can't reach with your thumb holding the phone, should be on the bottom to make it one handed
Summary: This is what people are looking for when they wrap their smart phones in an Otter Box Defender, but don't get. It is rugged enough to double as a hockey puck and survive. Mine took a dive into a toilet and survived. People were amazed when I took it to the sink and gave it a bath. I know of one that survived an 18 foot drop, hitting on it's edge on concrete. This is the Chuck Norris of Android phones.
Pros: Tough as nails. Relatively small, especially when you don't have to add additional casing. Desktop Charger is useful. Relatively simple interface. Best speakerphone I have ever used.
Cons: Touchy during phone calls. Has nasty habit of making phone calls on its own, when jarred. Touch screen has inconsistent sensitivity. Riddled with useless bloatware, which cannot be removed. Bluetooth voice quality is bad and difficult to adjust.
