I bought the CAT S41 in November 2017. After a year of experience with this phone, I can say that everything works perfectly. First of all, I would mention a GSM arena error in connection with this phone, it is stated that the TFT screen, which is not true, is the IPS LCD technology. The phone was very harsh, he had 5 falls with about half a meter (two of the most dangerous were from a half meter to a concrete and a ceramic floor, and there was nothing to him). Also, the battery lasts for 7 days of normal use. This summer, I tried the underwater camera and made great underwater shots.
The LEDs work fine ... green for a charged battery, blue for the received message and a call, red for a spent battery and a purple color ... (I forgot why it was;)). Software updates come every 3 months. I bought an additional 64 GB micro SD card, so I put everything on it, to leave those internal 30 GB only for the Android 7.0 operating system and its updates, so that I would not load the data and slow down the processor. You do not need any protective masks for this phone, because it is very resistant to dirt and falls up to a maximum meter, and this is ideal for easy whiskers.
I would also mention very good LED flash light lapm...
As I received a written notice from the CAT manufacturer, only phones made in China are original phones, because they are the only factory there. That's what they confirmed to me. All in all, I have no objections to this phone and I would certainly recommend it to everyone.
Catherine the Great, 29 Oct 2018The phone is not as good as it seems at first.why? can you tell me?
I am using this phone for 8 months as a geologist in the field works rough conditions , but unfortunately i dropped it and broke its Screen and here in Iran I cant find anywere its Screen
I purchased Cat S41 about 2 months ago because I work in construction in the south, where it is very hot and wet. Very disappointed. The phone randomly decides whether to receive calls. Texts always come through. In my house, shows full bars and sometimes will ring and sometimes not (from same number)
Griffen, 16 Sep 2018Same problem. After inserting microSD card, phone doesn't work until microSD put out of the phone.latest update fixes that problem..
Same problem. After inserting microSD card, phone doesn't work until microSD put out of the phone.

I like screen sensitivity you don't have to take off gloves whenever I need something ! Had no problems with wi-fi you should take phone to warranty check ! CAT smartphone got realy good warranty repair they like when you point some problems they got and they list them to improve in next mobel ! I really like how every next models improves discovered problems and most likely they will give you new phone (thay gave me new phone cuz I found screen problem) of course if you havent trying abusively break it !
Don't buy this phone. Reasons: *SCROLLING: is crap. Ever so often when scrolling the screen desides that you just pressed it, witch results in unwanted pictures, posts etc. *INTERNET & WIFI: Every time you disconnect from a wifi it doesn't connect on its own, so you have to activate flightmode and then disable it to get 4/3G. It looses connection to 4/3G all the time and you have to use the same procedure to get connected again. *SPELLING AID: Is useless and the touchscreen keyboard is constantly bugging making it nearly impossible to actually send texts. *SUMMARY: Even more shitty than iphone.
this phone really resistant.
I have dropped it lots of times and still works
