Casio has long made tough-as-nails handsets for those who lead an active life. Historically, they've been feature phones. Aiming for the more advanced user who wants a powerful, but protected, pocket pal, the Commando is a ruggedized, butt-kicking Android smartphone ready to take on any punishment you can deliver.
Casio's latest watch is a smarter wearable. The WSD-F30 boasts a smaller footprint than its predecessor, making it easier to wear.
The LG X venture is a rugged, waterproof handset sold by AT&T. It packs mid-range specs, such as a 5.2-inch display, a Snapdragon 435 processor, and a 16-megapixel camera, into a fairly compact form factor for a hardy handset.

This phone makes absolutely no sense to me.
"I have a phone that doesn't get signal very well on Verizon's network, so I can barely go online with it unless there's wifi in the wilderness ... but, I can take pictures and then go to starbucks after the hike and upload them onto my facebook."
Get a droid, or a fascinate ... and an OTTER BOX! seriously.
This is what we call a "non-phone".
