Casio G’z0ne Commando Update C771M110 on the Way – GPS Improvements, Better Push-to-Talk, and Bloatware Updates

For a semi-random and outdoors-inspired Android phone made by Casio, you have to be thrilled with the amount of updates it has received (this would be the 4th). While it will never have the specs or name recognition to keep up with the big wigs, the G’z0ne Commando is updated with the best of them.

This morning, a new update as build C771M110 has been approved by Verizon and we would assume will start to rollout within the next week or so. Included in the update you will find better push-to-talk functionality, GPS enhancements, email improvements, bloatware updates and more. And I know I say this every time this phone is the topic at hand, but doesn’t this phone just make you want to go out and get dirty?

The update will be 28MB in size. More info.

    If they want to update something on the G’zOne fix the damn key board and take away a few of the factory apps so we can install a few that WE, the customer, want

    I still hate this phone.. I need the durrability but this is definately a down grade from my droid 3 im going nuts at how little this phone does!!!!!! I hate it

    I went Commando over a year ago and still like this phone alot. I work in industrial emergency response and I can tell you that this phone can really take the abuse. It is rugged and highly water resistant. The down side is that the screen is less sensitive than other smartyphones and the processor is slower. And of course there is the bloatware that you can’t delete that takes up alot of  the phones internal memory.

    Is it just me…or is every darn phone getting updated but the Gnex?

    My Son and a co-workers husband are both interested in this phone.  I would enjoy hearing comments good and bad with regard to it.  I would rather my son get the RAZR, but his last phone took a beating, so this may be the one to go with.

      I have this as my work phone and it is awesome for durability, but the screen is so thick that you sacrifice some sensitivity. But if they are active outdoors and want an indestructible phone this one is perfect.

    I’d buy this phone just so I can say

    I’M GOIN COMMANDO!

    My son and daughter both have this phone and it’s held up great for them. My daughter is hell on phones and this Casio has taken a true beating. Even the screen has not been cracked by her. A true accomplishment! Damn good phone.

    How do you actually pronounce this name? My friend that actually has one, pronounces it “jizz one”… ಠ_ಠ  I feel like that is completely wrong. haha

      I always thought it was Gee zhone (spelling phonetically).

        When I first saw the name Rezound, i thought it was pronounced Rez-hound for the first week.

      It’s like Pizza Hut’s P’Zone.

    I think this falls under the old saying:  If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it, does it make a sound?

    • Bigsike

      I know a few landscapers and a whole Fire Dept that all have this phone and swear by it.

      • r0lct

        I stand corrected then!  Though I wonder what sold more, this or the Droid R2D2…

        • JonX

          I honestly wanted one of these since they’re so durable but realistically it’s not a phone the dev community focuses on.

      My dad has this phone and I enjoyed reading this article if that is what you are referring to when you say “no one is there to see it”
