Excerpt: I'd still have this phone if it didn't get jammed into a machine and broken. That is what it took to damage it. All the times I dropped it never hurt, it was that durable. A high speed buffer jamming it between the spinning pad and the frame was what it took to take it out. Overall, there are better phones with more features but they break so easily. This phone has decent speed, the UI is relatively fast and the wifi and 4G reception is very good.
Pros: Rugged, don't need a screen protector, Call quality and reception is great (WiFi as well), Speed is surprising good., Newer Andiod version, compared to older Commando lets you disable unwanted Verizon Apps
Cons: Camera quality rather poor, Stock battery not too good (upgraded battery lasts much longer)
Summary: Got this phone for a friend who is hard on his phones and what happened to it deserves a testimonial. During a heavy, late winter storm, the phone was dropped in the parking lot of a grocery store thanks to an unreliable OEM holster. Fodder for another review. Several days later it was found by a passerby in the melting snow having been caught up by the plow clearing the parking lot. To my friend's surprise, this person contacted him to return it.
Not update, but a great phone for the job site and outdoors

Summary: Kool phone, had it before and I liked it. So I purchased it again, due to its rugged features and being able to handle a little abuse on the job. To keep screen from getting scratched up in my pocket, I had ghost armor installed. Great phone for construction, not all the features of today's phone, but overall a great phone for me.
If they call it a smart phone then get educated 1st.

Summary: It is a smarter than average phone. If you want a rugged phone for work in the outdoors it will standup to anything you dish out. If you don't know how to operate a smart phone learn how before taking it out on your own. It is pretty complicated to use and will aggravate you to no end until you learn how to use it properly. I bought this phone because I had a GZ-One before but it was a flip phone and I had it 6 years with very little trouble.
If you text a lot, you don't work with your hands.

Summary: To all of the Commando haters...if you want to be a photographer, buy a camera, there are plenty for sale here on eBay. It is waterproof, you think you're not going to have to unseal the o ring around the headphone jack, battery, charging port, etc.? If you want a fragile yuppy phone, you're right, this phone ain't for you. If you sit in a office, don't buy this phone. If you work with your hands, this is the phone for you.
Summary: Be very careful of false advertising. The 4g/LTE version in product C811. The 3g version is C771. I'm researching this phone for my mother in law who is about to get her first smartphone and I noticed a lot of false claims out there.
Summary: I've had to buy several over the last 2 years. I've abused these phones and they keep on keeping on. . . while it has all the features of a smart phone - one thing I don't like is it's ability to tether for internet. VERY difficult to get the driver to interface with PDAnet or Easy Tether - this takes a lot of research and you have to hold your mouth just right. Otherwise it is rugged as the day is long. . .
Summary: The cell has worked great. Its rugged durability is second to none. I recommend this item. I have owned other cell phones and they have fallen apart, literally fallen apart. The Casio GzOne has met my expectations and requirements.
