Review: Casio G'zOne Commando
The Commando has a 5 megapixel camera. Camera features include autofocus, and an LED flash.
The camera controls and user interface are more or less stock Android. The left side of the display has five large icons hidden in a pull-out drawer to quickly adjust certain settings. Simply press the icon, and then swipe left or right to cycle through the options. Nice and easy.
The Commando focuses in about one second, and then takes about another second to capture and process images. Once captured, images can be sent, shared, deleted and fired off in pretty much every way imaginable.

The gallery is the stock Android option, with its neat 3D look and feel. Thankfully, the gallery application performed fluidly. I was worried it might be sluggish, but it was speedy and didn't let a sizable photo album slow it down.
Sadly, editing options are severely limited. Crop and rotate are all you get. Pitiful. At least the sharing options are solid.
Casio's latest watch is a smarter wearable. The WSD-F30 boasts a smaller footprint than its predecessor, making it easier to wear.
