Dropped phones and broken handsets are nothing new to many cell phone owners. That’s why the Casio G’zOne series of ruggedized handsets have been so standard over the years; they’re not just for those withconstruction jobs, but also those who want a reliable phone that won’t break at the drop of a hat. The most recent Casio G’zOne Rift is an update of the G’zOne Rock from last year, and it continues the Casio trend of air force-qualified roughness. It also comes equipped with open-air-friendly applications like a scope, a tidal graph, an astro calendar, and more. The Rift has a vaguely better camera than the Rock, but its facial appearance wait fundamentally the same. The call feature could be better as well. It is available for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in discount and a new two-year contract.
The Casio G’zOne Rift’s overall heft and bulk is akin to its predecessor, the G’zOne Rock. Even if, the front of the phone is vaguely better styled; the Rift has beveled edges that run along the part of the handset for a more rationalized look. We also reckon the hard red group surrounding the open-air sight is a nice draw a distinction with the frequently black phone.
Measuring 4.3 inches long by 2.1 inches wide by 0.9 inch thick, the Rift is constructed out of a durable plastic shell. In fact, it meets the air force 810G principles for resistance against water, shock, dust, interest, trembling, salt fog, humidity, solar radiation, altitude, and greatest temperatures. The consequence is a very bulky phone with rubber stoppers in all its ports and a textured rubberized back. The array cover also has a locking means to make sure the phone’s internals don’t get smashed.
The Casio G’zOne Rift has a 3.2-megapixel camera and LED flash on the back.
The aforementioned open-air sight is a 1.35-inch mono LCD. It shows the indicate might, array life, date and time in rank, and any incoming calls or text post. It also shows the currently before a live audience track when the music player is committed. You can use it as a camera viewfinder as well, but it’s black and white and very pixelated, so we wouldn’t urge that. You can change the clock format and whether you want the background to be black or white. Even if, there aren’t any open-air music player reins as on the G’zOne Rock. You also can’t access Push-to-Talk contacts and applications while the phone is clogged. Read more at allitreview.com
