Does your CAT S41 loses its signal at enclosed places, where o... moreI just had the phone a week and it constantly loses its mobile signal and also the mobile data signal is lost when the cell signal is on.
This happens in my home, whereas I never had this problem with my old phone. I have to constantly turn on airplane mode then turn it off to restart my data service.
This phone has 2 major weaknesses for my intended use (hiking in forests and mountains)
1. GPS is imprecise, always adjusting position tens and even hundreds of meters. It takes at least 30 seconds AFTER FIX for GPS to stabilize. Altitude can be offset by 200 meters and it is not adjusted, this huge error can be maintained whole day. I checked real altitude with map, my previous calibrated altimeter watch Casio PRW-3100 and an external GPS logger Canmore GT-750F with Sirf IV chipset. Signal levels from satellites reported by various programs (in dBm) are lower than other phones eg. my old Galaxy S4 . This is especially bad in cities, it places you a few streets away.
2. Compass needs calibration on every use, and even with this is not consistent - on a perfectly horizontal surface North as indicated by this compass depends on phone orientation - I keep the phone on the same spot on table and rotate it - and voila ! the North is now to my left as opposed to my right where it should be.

No help from company would not recommend them to anyone too many problems. Volume dies contacts vanish letters disappear brightness disappears no come back from company
Foremost, please note, CAT S41 is only an empty claim.
I have it, I just bought it past month.
There's No Android 7.1, it's only 7.0 which is not upgradable to 7.1, 8.0 or 8.1...!!!
2) the battery is draining very fast, the discharge rate is very bad and I'm not satisfied. The manufacturer has claimed it works as best, but to compare my previous CAT S40, the CAT S41 is baddest.! It makes its battery less than a day.
To compare with CAT-S40, the S41 has a lot of claimed added values, but unfortunately it's just an another wrong step.
I'll leave CAT brand and I'll claim against the producer soon.

ummister, 10 Feb 2018I've had S41 for about 2 months. Don't complain. Fcking great rugged phone. So far everything ... moreHello, just a question please:
Does your CAT S41 loses its signal at enclosed places, where other mobiles work normally ?
I bought it a month ago, but my Cat S41 has a big problem. Actually, at a lot of enclosed places, even though with windows, where other mobiles works normally having perfect signal, this one doesn't have signal. I used the same SIM card to enother mobile at the same places, the signal was OK, the mobile worked good.
I resetted factory setting but the problem still remains.
Has anyone had the same problem with me ? Can someone help me what to do ?
Maybe someone has the same problem. Cat s41 is good but problem is that people can't call to me. I can call for everyone but they can't, always no signal. What problem could be? The after-sales service says the mobile phone is good and everything works, but other people still can't call me. The SIM card is good, because i get callings to other mobile phone.
Does anybody have trouble with changing that little LED color settings? I am unable to change it to anything apart from default behavior.

I purchased two. I will try the other out because the one I am using cannot be relied on. I purchased then for use in security, but Bluetooth is problematic and so is the speaker.
Hey guys ....
I want to know if you have received the S41 with screen protector applied already on the screen ? I received mine like that and batter performance was very bad and returned it back.

I want to use it with my work SIM and private SIM and don´t want the hassle of choosing which SIM for each call and SMS.

Or somthing like that for Ur problem.. I realy confUzd.. I wanna buy this phone but some comment like problem with pairing or calling ins 41 making me more confused.. Whats Ur oppinion? What should i do.. Buy it or not
Had it for a month. Also have the bluetooth problem. Music works via bt, but while calling, sound and mic stop working after few minutes. The reception is problematic. The signal dissapeares from time to time. My friends tell it's impossible to call me cause i don't have reception. Battery life used to be superb, after one month i can tell that it's not that good anymore. It doesn't show any apps abuse the battery. The screen is too sensitive. Accidental taps are common. You don' t have to touch the screen for input. Writing is complicated thanks to that. Going to return the phone.
