First Look: The Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE is a Hulk of a handset

1:31 /

With its rubber-encased body, waterproof capabilities, and Verizon 4G LTE, the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE is the kind of phone you 'd want around for the apocalypse.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET and today I have with me the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE from Verizon Wireless. Now, as you can see, this device is thick and at over 6 ounces, it is heavy. But that's because it's also built extra tough. You can reportedly drop the handset 26 times from a height of 4 feet, submerge it into a meter of water up to 30 minutes and it's dust and shock resilient. This 4G LTE phone also has a 4-inch WVGA display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution. Unfortunately, it shifts with the rather dated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, but you'll also get some interesting G'zOne software from Casio that's compatible with someone who has an active lifestyle. This includes a stargazing app, barometer that measures atmospheric pressure, and a compass widget that's featured on the lock screen. You'll also get dual front-facing speakers, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel camera, expandable memory up to 32 gigs and NFC. Powering the Commando 4G LTE is a 1.5 gigahertz dual-core processor and a 1.8 ampere-hour battery that has a recorded talk time of up to 9 hours. If you're interested, the device is going for about $100 after the user sign a 2-year contract. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out Verizon's Commando 4G LTE.
