    If smartphones with a relatively low degree of ruggedness and moderate protection to water and dust are no longer niche devices (think Sony Xperia Z or Samsung Galaxy S4 Active), gadgets that are entirely rugged and feature very robust exteriors remain an oddity of the tech world. But they continue to exist and catch the more

    It sounds good hardware wise.
    I want to root it and remove 2/3 of the crap ware on it!

    Lets hope for better battery performance on this one.

    soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo jealous right now. did you have a free upgrade or did you buy it straight up?
  9. I got one yesterday too - it's sooo much faster than the old Commando! (That is to say, it's about like most other smartphones people have :p) I paid full price for mine - there were no upgrades on my account until 2014, and I couldn't wait that long!

    I had an upgrade.... but even the verizon sales guy said its not like it used to be ...that its really not free... he told me that even he can't get a free phone for his family anymore... I ended up paying close to $200 with the free phone credit and I had a Military discount to boot. But its a nice upgrade and just begging to be rooted and custom ROMed!!! The screens/menus and organization is slightly different... lots of crapwear of course. Just image how fast it would be without the crap!!!! But for a starting point this is a great phone that rivals the majority of the smartphones out there yet is rugged like I need for my occupation. I want to research/test if rooting can work for this upgrade with available methods... I recall the "interesting" security of the previous model. All and all I am very pleased with it.

    I was quoted $130 using my upgrade.
    If it could be rooted today I would likely have one tomorrow.
