Review: Casio Gz'One Commando 4G LTE for Verizon Wireless
I may have a few quibbles with the hardware, but the Casio G'zOne Commando LTE 4G is a definite improvement over the original. The hardware looks good and mostly functions well. It has a nice screen, excellent signal and voice performance, and decent battery life. The user interface is based on stock Android, but has its own, unique look that should appeal to weekend warriors. The larger screen and faster network performance go a long way to making the Commando a great day-to-day device.
The G'zGear tools, all housed in the rugged Commando shell, are a perfect match for outdoor enthusiasts who'd rather spend the weekend outside tearing up the countryside than providing armchair commentary on whatever sports matches are on TV. The camera does a decent job, as does the video camera, and the multimedia options are just as rich as any other Android device in Verizon's roster.
If you need a rugged device and don't mind sacrificing screen size/resolution for a more hardened piece of hardware, the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE is a solid pick.
