Software and Operating System
Android 2.1.1 (Froyo) powers this MIL-STD-810G smartphone out-of-the-box, with the option to upgrade the operating system to Android version 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). Please note: Any devices running older Android versions are no longer officially supported by Google for software or security updates.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 system-on-chip runs at 800MHz and the phone includes 1GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot for users to expand their storage up 32GB of additional memory. Casio’s C771 also has 512MB of RAM to power multi-app switching.
The G’Zone Commando has a singular 5MP on the back of the device for on-the-job documenting.
CDMA connectivity provides 3G data, calls, and messaging.
Standby time is up to 270 hrs with the removable 1460 mAh Lithium Ion battery.
The Casio G’zOne Commando (C771) CDMA is another strong entry from Casio in their ruggedized lineup. While not as competitive on hardware specs as newer devices, the built-in casing provides a defensive layer that makes this phone popular with construction workers and other customers who need a functional rugged device.
