New Casio Ruggedized Phone Coming Out Soon.


Whoo-hoo. Hopefully my next upgrade will be ready when this finally hits stores. If it is as rugged as my Commando, I'm happy. The ruggedness makes up for it's less then top shelf specs.

Re: New Casio Ruggedized Phone Coming Out Soon.


I have had the casio brigade for 2 years now, put it through hell and high water. My buddy ran it over with his truck right when i got it. Nothing happened. Thrown off roofs, cliffs, put through a washer. Still works.

I like the looks of the samsung though, if apple found a way to make the iphone happen in a rugged design. Id be all over it

The second one? Not sure.

Yep. The Casio's are tough and rugged. They are made for extreme conditions instead of being a normal phone in a tough case. The Samsung looks like the glass is too close to the edge.

My favorite thing is to throw my phone down when I show it to someone. It makes their jaw drop.

Life proof is the way to go for the iphone. Having a waterproof phone is awesome. And it's not crazy bulky.

Sounds great, let me know when you design one that works

Casios phones are designed with seals fromt he inside out. No case compares.

The otterbox defender is a very good case.

I realize it's not the same as a military spec phone, but it did a very good job for me.


This 3gs is 3 yrs old. Looks almost new and has survived many many drops, and full time service on a framing crew.

I use otter box, but there are plenty of nice ones available...lifeproof, ballistic, special...

If a case is waterproof I'd say it's a good enough seal.

Re: New Casio Ruggedized Phone Coming Out Soon.


I've been using the Casio Gz'One phones since the Rock came out. Although I never had the Brigade. My Commando works well. I do a lot of sprinklers and I am always getting it wet. Sometimes its slow but other then that it works well. I be getting the new one when the price drops.
