"Lousy sound quality"

The good: Rugged, well made and waterproof

The bad: Terrible sound quality, short battery life

Summary: I really wanted to like this phone because a rugged, waterproof, no frills cell phone is something I've wished for. I read some negative reviews about the sound quality but
thought perhaps the reviewers were just picky.

I went to the Verizon store and the clerk claimed it was highly rated by Consumer Reports. Turns out she meant the previous model.

This phone is absolute garbage. The sound quality is unacceptable. Calls are so tinny and static filled that two tin cans with a string might be a better option. No matter how good the other features are, what is the point of a cell phone if you can't understand the person on the other end?

Just to make sure it wasn't me, I gave the phone to my wife to make a call without telling her a thing about the sound quality. A few seconds into the call she asked me if there was something wrong with the phone because she couldn't hear the other person clearly.


Next on the list is battery life. I fully charged the phone, then started playing with ring tones, settings and other features. After a half hour of this the battery was down to two bars.

I could deal with the battery life by buying two if everything else about the phone was fine, but with the call quality, forget it.


I don't see how a phone like this could be released to the public. Wasn't there somebody at Casio who actually made a call on the thing?

The phone is going back to Verizon today
