Kyocera Brigadier vs Casio Commando

I'm in the market for a new phone again. I have had a 3g Commando for the last few years, and it has worked quite well. I honestly don't know what all the negative reviews are about, I've only had it lock a couple times and it was easy to get it to behave, and I've been using the hell out of it. Dropped it in the mud more times than I care to think, dropped it on concrete, got welding spatter on it, and the only issue is my oldest son managed to smash the screen on the last one, over two years ago. The current one has been going strong since then, but 3g speed isn't really serving my needs anymore.
I had wanted to get the Commando 4g, but it's no longer available new. It has the same BS reviews as my older one, so I'm just throwing those out the window. The current rugged smartphone is the Kyocera Brigadier, which while it has many of the same features, it doesn't have a thermometer and the battery is inside instead of being easily accessed. It has a barometer which I really don't need, higher screen resolution along with a larger screen (not a big deal for me), and better camera (again doesn't really matter), but otherwise is pretty similar.
Has anyone had both of these, or is able to give a proper user review of one?

Yup, I've read the reviews by people who have no use for something like this and can do laboratory tests. What I want is real world results, the reviews of my Commando were terrible but it's been an awesome phone for me for nearly three years now.
