The video capabilities of this phone is nowhere near 1080p@60fps, there is no such option on it. The most you can do is to set it on 720p@30fps.
AlaskanGal, 02 Jan 2018I purchased the S30 in September 2017 from Cat Phone sales. It took a month to make it to me. ... moreIt's really interesting to read all these stories about the CAT S30
I did not know other people have had similar crap to me.
The CAT S30 has been a Nightmare!
Mine has been replaced by CAT, it was a complete Nightmare to get them to even except it back for repairs ....even with a 2 year Warranty.
To say Customer Service with CAT is POOR is an Understatement!
I will Never purchase another CAT product!
Even after CAT replaced my CAT S30 ....The New one has started to Freeze up and keeps turning off, ....and it's Only about 6 weeks old!
The CAT S30 is just a pile of Poop, just like Customer Service at CAT!
I paid £154.95 from Carphone Wharhouse Online, they did not want nothing to do with me when I called and asked for help, so I will Not buy from them again!
They got out of it by saying it's under warranty so you'll have to contact CAT
YES they are correct, but they are very fast to take your order and money, anything goes wrong and they don't want to know.
I'm looking at getting the iPhone 6S ....Ive read loads of good reviews on it.
I'm sick of CAT and I'm sick of Google .... it's time to try Apple and an iPhone.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2018I've had prepaid gas station phones that worked better than the Cat S30. However I will say it... moreI totally agree!
The CAT S30 is so Irritating it makes you want to put a bullet in it!
I had problems within 8 months of buying mine because of storage space.
It won't let you move Google Apps to the SD Card, so that's No help!
Google are a pain in the rush to say the least!
I'm about to try an iPhone, see what Apple are like.
My CAT S30 had to go in for repairs just after 1 year, they replaced it but now the New one keeps Freezing up and turning it's self off.
I'm finished with CAT and Google!
I think the problems are with CAT'S Crappy Software, and Google Apps I guess.
It constantly keeps telling me Google Chrome is not responding.
But because it's Android and Google Apps it would not let me put another web browser on it like Firefox.
Maybe some others may work on it but all in all Crap Software, Only 1 GB of Memory, Only 8 GB of Storage then all ya BS from Google is a recapy for a load of Crap!
I guess it Cheap end Bull Crap!
Mine was £154.95 here in UK, the iPhone 6S I'm looking at is £299
That's nearly double but I guess you get what you pay for.
I've read a lot of reviews for the iPhone 6S and they look real good!
I've had it for a couple of years. I've dropped it dozens of times, had it in pocket with keys, coins, etc, still not a scratch, so from hardware stand point it's a great phone. However the software runs like trash. It was relatively good when it came out, but over the years google added too much bloatware. Every app and web page demands more memory and CPU than a couple of years ago, and this phone simply doesn't have enogh.
If you reset it to factory settings and just let it finish all updates, it will start complaining about low storage space.
It can still perform basic operatios like phone calls, messaging and web browsing, but even this is slow, choppy and with constant hang ups.
You can install additional sd card, but it won't help much because android 5.1 doesn't yet allow you to move built-in android apps to sd card.
So if you need it for most basic things, like phone calls, messaging, GPS... it will work, but it will do it poorly and slowly.
And another thing.. the side buttons are a PITA. It's too easy to press them by accident.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2018I've had prepaid gas station phones that worked better than the Cat S30. However I will say it... moreThat's the irony. You really want to destroy it but you can't... The phone is really terrible. I will never buy anther car phone again. Wanted something other than the usual Samsung stuff but have learnt
I've had prepaid gas station phones that worked better than the Cat S30. However I will say it's the toughest phone I've ever had. It Aggravated me to the point of punching it, throwing it, slamming it and even stomping on it, (not all at once). The a screen is still in tact, the casing is too. It still operates worse than anything I've ever had before but hasn't gotten any worse.
I think it is a good phone. Wifi is good and fast. I dont try water and dust but it looks a strong phone. Stronger than other. I like it.
Worst phone ever. No memory so cannot update any apps. Seriously worst camera around. Terrible video quality. This phone is even slower that Nokia 3310.Will never buy this brand again. Terrible battery and overheats after about 6 months. Slow slow slow!!! Takes about 10 minutes to reboot until you can actually use it. Piece of junk.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2018Worst phone that I have ever bought,customer service is lousy just like the phone.Memory is pi... moreThe worst phone I've ever had.
Horrible memory, dials numbers on its own, it is pure crap...
Don't buy it...
Worst phone that I have ever bought,customer service is lousy just like the phone.Memory is pitiful,it freezes,dials out when you haven't,struggle to answer incoming calls if you are on it at the time,lousey speaker and the return key has lost it's spring so it has to be pushed hard.And that's just what I can think of at present!
i have CAT S30 it just went off,i charge try to switch it on but nothing comes
what would be a problem
I purchased the S30 in September 2017 from Cat Phone sales. It took a month to make it to me. Crap customer support!
On my first use it fell on the floor of my clean car. I picked it up to find the screen all scratched up. I have owned 2 Cat B15 phones that have rolled around my farm truck, been drove over with farm tractor, and they still don't have scratches with NO screen protector.
I don't know what CAT has done with the inferior glass use but the new S30 scratches like a piece of fine china.
I called on the warranty. The phone was supposed to come with a screen protector and did not. My B15s never came with one nor had one. Customer service wants me to ship my phone back to them and be without a phone for 3 weeks to get a new glass screen!
INFERIOR product that should not need fixing when it hasn't even been used yet.
