I am on my commando now. I love it. First android phone but it's tough and waterproof. If you play on it a lot the battery life sucks. I've have it 4 months and its been real tough.

I have dropped and "thrown" my phone a bunch since I get the otter box, only time I broke was when the Red Wings lost a playogg game and I slammed my phone screen first onto a table with a shitty aftermarkey screen.

Get an Iphone with an otterbox. I have a cammando and it is a tough phone but the android system is herky jerky with my phone and it does random shit that is annoying. They have sent me 3 replacements in a matter of 4 months in hopes to resolve my issues. I am going out to buy an Iphone at some point this week and selling my cammando on Craigslist.

Make sure you do not buy the otter box from the store you can get it online for s 1/3 of the price.

Bought mine in july and I love it. It takes everything i throw at it. Or should I say I throw it at. Makes it easy to clean when you get it all greasy just wash it off. Havent had any problems yet.

I've had my GZone Commando since May.
I like it.
It's been underwater and buried in the sand at Typhoon lagoon
Just rinsed it off.

I had the commando, It's a great idea but has a lot of bugs that need to be worked out. I went through three in the first 2 months because of software failures. I liked the idea of the phone but it just kept freezing and the touch screen wouldn't work. They have a 60% fail rate or something like that.
