Tom's Guide

The phone endures, the camera does not

CAT S41

from Tom's Guide

The Cat S41 is ideal for those who demand the utmost durability, at nearly half the cost of the Galaxy S8 Active. But the S41's camera and just average performance spoil the package.

TechRadar

A rugged smartphone that delivers the goods and then some

CAT S41

from TechRadar

The Cat S41 has hit a sweet spot by going after an audience who will know about the brand, and are likely to request VAT refunds and look for a solid aftersales service – which similarly priced Chinese-sourced rivals won’t be able to match on either count.

Digit

A niche product that is aimed at those with a very rugged lifestyle

CAT S60

from Digit

The CAT S60 is not a phone for you and me. It's actually not a phone for most of us. It belongs to a niche market segment. We wish the regular market could have some of this ruggedness, or be at least 30% as rugged as this phone. For a rugged phone, the CAT S60 actually seems to be quite a device. If you are looking for a phone that can keep up with your rough and tumble lifestyle, there are hardly many phones that can compete with the CAT S60. It is currently in a class of its own.

Rugged to the bone

CAT S60

from Fone Arena

The CAT S60 is a tool. We can’t recommend anyone to buy this as a phone first. As a smartphone, the CAT S60 is grossly overpriced and over-engineered. You can get any current flagship smartphone within the same budget but then again, the CAT S60 isn’t just a smartphone.

NDTV

A rugged smartphone with thermal camera

CAT S60

from NDTV

Overall, the Cat S60 handles smartphone duties pretty well but we can’t help but feel that it’s underpowered for a smartphone that you probably won’t be upgrading anytime soon. We wish the phone had better cameras and battery life. The thermal camera is a very cool addition to an already impressive list of fortifications against the elements. However, if your work or leisure activities take you to unforgiving environments, then the Cat S60 might be worth the investment.

The Indian Express

The toughest phone money can buy

CAT S60

from The Indian Express

Should you buy? Yes, if you work in an industry that puts you in the middle of the action, that too outdoors. While the company thinks the phone will appeal to those who live an active lifestyle, the quality of the primary camera might just put off most of them from picking this as their adventure phone.

Cat S60 Review: Batman called and wants his phone back

CAT S60

from PCWorld

It’s very likely you’re not the person this phone was designed and built for, but odds are you know one or two people who fit the Cat mold. As soon as I started testing it, two family members immediately came to mind. They’re both hard on phones, would use the Flir camera every day, and could care less about camera quality or processor speed. At the end of the day, they want a phone that lasts and won’t easily break. And in that regard, the Cat S60 delivers.

Tough build and thermal imaging make for a phone like no other

CAT S60

from Pocket-lint

It's clear from the outset that the Cat S60 is a phone built for a niche market, so comparing it to phones like the iPhone 6S or Galaxy S7 would be foolish. The features that really matter on the S60 are the ones that shine through - its specialist applications. The Flir camera adds thermal imaging capabilities to a smartphone for the first time ever, which is a genuinely useful tool to have on your phone if you're in an industry that needs one.

Thermal image smartphone gives you Predator vision

CAT S60

from The Inquirer

The Cat S60 will appeal to a very small sector who will find it a sensible purchase. For everyone else it's nothing more than an average Android smartphone with thermal imaging tricks to match Predator's.

Phone overheated, I went through the correct outlets (where you would usually send your phone for warrenty repairs) and explained that i realized my warrenty was up but is there any way I could pay for the shipping and repair through them. Nope, find a local phone repair shop. They won't touch it after warrenty. No shops have any parts. This is an impossible hassle to try to get anything fixed. Please don't make my mistake buying this phone. Less

I bought the phone in the beginning of Feb 2015 and it worked great for about 3 months. It started doing weird things like calling out to a different number while I was talking to someone, shutting off on its own while in my pocket, not responding when I tried to use it, and various other things. It then fell out of my pocket from only about 2 feet off the ground and the screen cracked. Just like the previous reviewer stated, it is impossible to find a repair facility to fix it. Less

toughman

Not a tough phone, broke 2 screens and now are not available and bullit wants me to upgrade but they are not doing any better on price than online. Just bite the bullitt and buy a sonim xp7 as ihave done, 3 year warranty even on damage and proper tough. I only bought cat as at the time sonim had not released their smart phone.

I hate this phone because it is crap.

CAT B15

Do not let them fool you, this phone is not so tough as they claim , it's processor is very slow, it not user friendly, the battery does not last longer than other smart phones, it is definitely not water or even damp or splash proof.

Do not let them fool you, this phone is not so tough as they claim , it's processor is very slow, it not user friendly, the battery does not last longer than other smart phones, it is definitely not water or even damp or splash proof. I got the new B15 Q in February 2015. I am a farmer and use my phone a lot outdoors as what the B 15 Q is intended for. The first time I got caught in a rain storm it was inside my rain suit and only got a bit of dampness-stuffed! Buttons doesn't respond, switches on and off, phones anyone randomly. Fell once off my bed, completely stuffed, doesn't even come on anymore. Absolutely a crap, waste of money. Don't buy it. Less

I broke mine too, found a place in europe that will fix it, but it's warranted for a year against broken glass, but you have to ship it to england, mines on its way home now. I also had trouble updating its firmware you?
