Casio G-Shock handset is a tough nut to crack

I am quite sure that all of us take good care of our gadgets, and one of the most painful experiences that our heart can feel would be dropping a spanking new smartphone onto the hard, concrete floor. There is always the slight pause in your breath when you bend down to pick it up, wondering whether the screen has cracked or not. Well, with a phone like the Casio G-Shock, I guess there is nothing to worry about. After all, this is no rugged watch, but rather, a tough-as-nails smartphone from Casio that follows the design route of the Japanese manufacturer’s watches, featuring buttons on the sides near the corners.
The display itself is surrounded by a thick frame, making sure it remains from scratches and cracks should it fall flat on a surface. The Casio G-Shock is shock-resistant (10 feet), pressure-resistant (1.0 ton) and water-resistant (1.0 bar), but I am quite sure driving a vehicle over it a few times would result in some form of serious damage – anyone willing to purchase a unit and declare otherwise?

  1. My brother has the previous version, and it has spent 20 min submurged in a 50gal drum of water. This was Sept 2011, and phone still works perfectly.
    In fact all previous versions of the G’zone/G’Shock that friends and employee’s have used still work and and they have been put through H… E… Double Hockey Sticks!

  2. I think that G-Shock phone looks really cool. very rugged. Wow.. matches to my gshock watch. Now only if i can make it shoot bullets.. hmmm
