If you haven’t heard much about Verizon’s oddly named G’zOne phone, then you rugged outdoorsmen are missing out big time. Made to be compliant with military standards and general ass-kickings, the G’zOne is supposed to be able to take a lot of punishment without failing on the user. Some dude named Andy got his hands on one and really put it to the test. The phone was cooked in an oven, massaged violently, thrown in a shower, submerged underwater, and then some.
So how’d the phone do? It passed with flying colors and worked fine after every test. If you’re looking for a phone you can drop, spill beer on, and kick when you’re mad, then the G’zOne and you might have a successful future together. It goes for $300 with a two-year contract from Verizon.
