Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE


The Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE isn't the sexiest phone to bring to a beach party, nor does it have the sexiest name (it's pronounced "jeez-one" in case you're wondering, as in jeez-one-person-should-be-fired-for-that-name). But if you're looking for...

The waterproof Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE has fast 4G speeds, good call quality, dual front-facing speakers, and useful preloaded apps for the outdoors.

Its bulky build, poor photo quality, and outdated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS drag down performance.

The Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE is an excellent and affordable rugged handset, but skip it if taking great pictures is a priority.

Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE (Verizon Wireless)


The Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE is a super-tough smartphone for Verizon Wireless spelunkers, but of less interest for everyone else.

Rugged build. Excellent call quality. Cool travel apps and features

Dated software. Poor video camera. Mid-range specs and display

Do you enjoy long walks on the beach, poolside afternoons with a glass of sun tea, and moonlit strolls through the woods? That's great, but none of those are particularly good places to bring your phone. Think about it—one slip into the sand, one dip...

Casio GzOne Commando


The toughest Android phone yet, the G'zOne Commando can survive practically anything.

There's no denying that the $199 Casio G'zOne Commando is one rough and tumble smart phone. Rain, wind, drops, bumps, scratches. Whatever you--or Mother Nature--can dish out, this Android handset can take it. However, you'll have to be willing to live...

Casio G'zOne Commando


For years, construction workers, thrill-seekers, and everyone else unfettered by cubicle walls have had rubberized, rugged handsets to keep them company on the road. Until fairly recently, though, the price of durability has been settling for a...

Casio G'zOne Commando (Verizon Wireless)


The Casio G'zOne brand is well known for its line of rugged phones. From the Type-V all the way to the more recent Ravine, the Casio G'zOne series of handsets are built tough in accordance with stringent military specifications. They can withstand a...

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. Other notable features include Wi-Fi, mobile hot-spot capability for up to five devices, GPS,...

The Casio G'zOne Commando is unfortunately saddled with bloatware from Verizon, and the default search engine is Bing. Google Maps is not preinstalled either, though you can download it yourself. Casio's snap-out menu is not as fluid as we would like....

The Casio G'zOne Commando is absolutely the choice if you want a rugged Android smartphone, but you have to keep its various negatives in mind.

Casio g'ZOne Commando


The Casio G'zOne Commando is designed to take a fair share of abuse. Much like the Motorola Defy, the Commando on Verizon ($200 with a new 2-year contract) is a rugged Android device meant for people who require a smartphone that can endure the...

Great battery life for a smartphone ; Very solid design

Call quality could be better ; Unresponsive touchscreen

The Commando brings Android to the outdoors in a sleek, yet rugged phone, but its unresponsive touchscreen makes it frustrating to use.

Casio G'zOne Commando (Verizon Wireless)


Unfortunately, the panel simply wasn't that responsive. Unlocking the screen was tough; each time, it took several seconds for it to register the motion, and sometimes it missed my finger swipe altogether. Four touch-enabled keys sit below the screen;...

Rugged good looks. Loud, full speakerphone. Awesome battery life. Runs Android 2.2

Slow lock screen. Sluggish UI. Disappointing camera. Too much bloatware

The Casio G'zOne Commando offers outdoors-minded folks a rugged Android smartphone, but it lags in several key areas.

Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE Review


Casio has been making various rugged phones for Verizon Wireless for nearly 7 years now, with the last version coming in 2011 in the form of the Casio G'zOne Commando – an Android powered smartphone. But that has been 2 years ago, and in the...

Rugged and can withstand almost anything ; Unique G’zGear and G’zWorld apps ; Front stereo speakers

Display quality and resolution is lacking ; Mediocre camera and video recording ; Still runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich

If you are looking for a rugged and outdoor durable Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless, your best and only choice is the Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE, as it meets MIL 810G certification for being able to withstand the elements, and it comes with...
