A phone to last you through the Rapture: the Casio G'zOne Commando

I'm totally kidding. It's all in the name of fun, because, honestly, the guy already miscalculated once. Second-guessing usually doesn't fix that problem, and he's already an idiot. 

Anyway, if there would've been a catastrophic zombie earthquake of DOOM this weekend, maybe you would've liked to keep in touch with your friends and family to let them know where the brains were being eaten. If that sounds like you, you should've looked straight towards the Casio G'zOne Commando, a rugged Android phone that has actually gone straight to my heart . . . although I'm sure it could go through it, as well. 

Normally when I review phones, I try my darnedest to not drop it onto pavement or get it wet. But the Casio G'zOne Commando is a little bit different. With this phone, I allowed my clumsiness to get the better of the device. And this video proves it.

 

Hopefully you can see that this is one heck of a tough device. The only thing that happens when you drop it is that the cosmetics are a little buggered up. But you'll also notice that the screen and the camera on the back are totally fine, ready to use as soon as you pick it up. And water? You could swim with it in your pocket, so long as you don't go lower than three feet of water for longer than a half an hour. But you could theoretically swim with it. 

I would also like to note that if you do decide to buy this device and abuse its little heart out, you will end up with one heck of an ugly device. It's not beautiful to start, but with the chips and scuffs from dropping it so many times, it just gets uglier. Unless you're the kind of gadget lover who likes to show a little wear and tear, in which case, you might love the ability of the Commando to withstand the worst possible things and still be usable. Please enjoy the gallery below of the damage that was done.

This obviously doesn't conclude our torturing of the device. It still needs to fly and go to the Antarctica hidden in my freezer. Maybe I'll throw it in the washer, too. (It did get pretty dirty here.) We'll see. Stay tuned.
