Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE Review
We were quite please with the call quality while using the Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE as voices sounded clear and natural on both ends. The added benefit of the front stereo speakers means you can even use the speakerphone in noisy environments and still hear the caller.


Battery:

When it comes to battery capacity, bigger is better, so we’re a bit disappointed to only see an 1800mAh battery on board. The specs say it is capable of 9 hours of talk time or 16 days of standby time, but during our tests we were able to get 8 hours of talk time, or about 2 days of mixed usage before requiring a charge. If that is not enough for you, or you’re planning a weekend hiking trip while using the G’zGear apps, you may want to consider the larger 2920mAh extended battery.


Conclusion:

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 an attractive $99 contract price. Even though we like the overall design of the phone, it is lacking in some features found on other devices at this price-point, such as a larger and higher resolution display, faster processor, and better quality camera. Despite this, the Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE should work well for its target audience.

Software version on the reviewed unit:
