Memory card Many phones have slots that accept memory cards, typically microSD, to expand storage capacity by as much as 64GB. The removable cards can also serve as an easy way to shuttle files between your phone and other devices--provided that the phone's maker didn't bury the card slot behind the battery cover.
Touch screen Full touch-sensitive displays respond to light contact with a stylus, finger, or both. They provide an alternate, and sometimes more direct, method to input data and launch phone features and controls. But they often require two hands to operate, and they smudge more frequently than their non-touch counterparts.
QWERTY keyboard Keyboards make composing and editing text and e-mail messages much easier than a keypad does. Some phones have keyboards that try to save space by having some letters, numbers, and symbols share a key. Those "condensed" keyboards, though still more convenient than a keypad, are not quite as easy to handle as full QWERTY keyboards.
Document editing All smart phones, and some conventional cell phones, allow you to review documents. Some models add the convenience of creating, deleting, and editing them out of the box.
Music player Indicates the phone has a built-in MP3 player. Most players have full capabilities, allowing you to sort or view tracks according to genre, album or artist, playlists, etc. They also typically have more than one playback option, such as repeat and shuffle. The small number of phones that lack these convenient features are rather cumbersome to use.
Voice command This feature allows you dial numbers from your phone book by speaking the name, without the usual training. You can also dial numbers by pronouncing the digits.
GPS navigation All phones have some type of location-based technology to help emergency responders find you when you dial 911. Many phones support GPS Navigation, services which integrate GPS with maps and search engines to give you real-time, spoken, turn-by-turn directions to an entered address, or to help you find nearby businesses by name or category, such as Joe's Pizzeria or hospitals. We indicate which phones have GPS navigation capability as reported by the carrier and manufacturer. Some phones lack automatic rerouting, spoken turn-by-turn directions, and other advanced capabilities, which limit their usefulness while driving. We don't consider obscure third-party applications or hardware attachments.
4G broadband data Indicates which models are considered "4G" based on the definitions from the carriers. Check with your carrier to see which broadband data networks are available in your area.
I needed a phone that I could go hunting or fishing without worries about it getting damaged. I don't need to worry about it falling out of a tree stand or when I am fishing in the rain. <br />Thank You Casio for looking out for the wilderness dude, yet with some moderation.

Toughest phone I've ever owned
Poor Battery Life
After losing my BlackBerry Curve a few years back (when they were NOT cheap) to the wet environment (while encased in an Otterbox) in my saddlebag during a ride, I needed a new phone. Due to the high cost of smartphones, I wanted to find one that was waterproof, if possible. I also wanted a durable phone (we live on a farm/ranch and I take my phone horseback riding), plus with a WiFi hotspot for my laptop/tablet. Found this phone and have loved it. Needed to install Appkiller to deal with battery-sucking apps, but since then, battery life has not been a huge issue. Battery life could be better. Bottom line, I'm SO glad I bought a waterproof phone, because my hubby washed the darn thing by accident, and it did NO damage at all. Still worked just fine! The hotspot works wonderfully well and connectivity is pretty good. If you need to do a hard kill and pull out the battery, that is a bit of a challenge. Flashlight feature is really nice for me too. Keypad could be better-sometimes there are a few letters that are hard to get it to recognize-and this is coming from a woman...guys with big hands may have a hard time, don't know. Took me awhile after I bought it to figure out how to swipe to start screen. Does what I want well, takes abuse and still performs.

GPS works great, even when not in phone service areas, I use it as a speedometer/odometer and GPS on an offroad motorcycle, It took days of pounding over Coloroado mountain passed attached directly to the handlebar with no rubber mounting with no problems. Rain, bouncing, dropping, rocks, sand, dust, dirt, and not a single hickup. <br /><br />Battery life is good but with GPS running and Maps loaded it isn't stellar. I used an external battery and used it all day with no issues.<br /><br />This is the only phone/gps I've found that can take the abuse of enduro/dualsport motorcycles in any weather. Screen is bright enough for sunny days and after thousands of miles in dirt and grime still not a scratch.
