I've had the CAT S60 for a little over a year now.
Its a cool phone, no doubt, but it's far from perfect.
Within the first 6 months, the mesh screen at the speaker started loosening until I finally removed it entirely. I thought, OK, I'm over it.
Within 10 or so months, I noticed a significant decrease in battery life. When I first bought it, it lasted over 2 days, no problem. Around the 10 month mark, I realised it was barely lasting me a day. I thought, OK, the battery is still better than some other phones.
Most recently, I decided to show my friend how cool the phone was by switching it to 5m mode, closing all the ports and submerging it in less than a foot of water for about 30 seconds and unfortunately, it took on water.
Now there is condensation in the camera lens and most of the hard buttons don't work anymore.
If you wan't am expensive, cool looking phone that is marginally more rugged than other android phones, get the CAT. If you wan't a tough, actually waterproof phone, I'd look elsewhere.
I did call CAT support. Turns out their warranty is 1 year, so they could only offer to repair the phone for about 500 dollars. No thanks CAT. Stick to making bulldozers.
Machor, 13 Jun 2018You're a big liar, my S60 comes down literally after 10 months. Wifi drain battery for 8 hours... moreThat was my experience too. Relatively fine the first 6 months. Then issues with battety drain, camera quality and overheating that get worst with time. After a year and a half my phone only last around 6 to 8 hours.
CAT s60 is a bad quality phone.
AnonD-576449, 25 Aug 2016I don't know what some people here are complaining about - my CAT S60 works perfectly. Cell s... moreYou're a big liar, my S60 comes down literally after 10 months. Wifi drain battery for 8 hours, signal is constantly lost on both cards at 4g and gsm. CAT s60 is a cheap Chinese trash phone in "on paper" hard case.
I have my CAT S60 less than a year ago:
1) Poor quality of photos
2) the operating system restarts at all times
3) many times the microphone is turned off when I have calls
4) the speaker's mesh fell off, so there is no longer a factory guarantee of waterproof.
I am very dissapointed of this "rugged" phone.
Has basically fallen apart after less than 2 years, usb and headphones flaps have both lost their covers, front speaker grill has peeled off, headphone socket now unreliable and sound keeps dropping (have tried with 3 sets of headphones).
GPS is also normally upside down, or flips 180 Def every couple of seconds.
Wouldn't buy again.
For a flagman phone that is marketed as rugged, the build quality is unacceptable. USB charging port lastic cover fell off after two month use. After 1.5 year use the front speaker grill glued off and got lost, the textile strip underneath also glued off, leaving speaker ports exposed open. Tried to resolve it through customer service and repair shops - the attitude was - "we can't do anything, sorry". The camera specs are okay, but picture quality, unless in bright sunlight, is abismal. Either they have some strange sh*t qualty sensor, or the alhorythm running it is coded by amateurs. Also if running any processor-heavy app, i.e. photo stiching or just any graphically demanding app, the phone gets so ho to the level it is uncomfortable to hold. The only good thing about it still remains the thermal camera, but considering all the flaws, for the asking price, in retrospect, it is was madness to buy one. I will never buy another CAT phone. What a joke.
My cat S60 is excellent as FLIR, phone, camera etc. But not with social apps FB, Snapchat and Messenger. Does anyone have a solution how to make S60 not to lag or become non-responsive with these apps?
if You drop a phone with high G:s you will dent the "gyroskop" on the phone and you will loose your gps signal and so( on a nanoscale level)

Hi, someone knows something about when can I buy a S61? Im waiting but I can't find news about It. I have read a lot of news about the Barcelona mobile congress but nothing about dates.
I own a S60 for 1,5 yrs and I love it. It is so robust and I'm so confident of this that i deliberately throw and kick it around on floors and walls. It never fails to amaze me. Even taking pictures in a bubble bath is no problem - under the water that is. Just awesome!
3 minor deficits: picture quality, the need to open covers for charging and related: why no wireless charging for a phone like this???

Eggface, 17 Feb 2018This has been out for a year now. Any idea when and if a new s60 (s61?) is coming?S31 and S41 came out a little over two years after the older models, by that logic we might see the S61 in autumn.
