Upon delivery the phone did not function correctly when charging, it sometimes does not read the SD card correctly (tests with other smartphones proven), the camera (especially with video) has difficulty with the focus, the thermal imaging is more of a gadget. The good thing about the CAT60? It's long life battery and waterproofness, although the latter is until you break one of the protective covers... (each time the phone charges you will have one of those protective lids open) I would hesitate to recommend the phone!

Great Phone. 'Practically' unbreakable. I have a young child who has tried her best. She broke 2 phones before this one. She cant even scratch this thing. Its only scuff came from when I accidently dropped it from the hood of a lifted Jeep onto concrete. Scuffed the corner good, but it didn't even reboot. I actually said "Wow!" when I picked it up and it was still functioning perfectly.
Not much bloatware. Some, but not much. Flir is very useful in my profession, but its pretty cool as a party gimmick. Everyone has something to say about the thermal imaging and snapshots. Surprisingly, some people get sore and jealous about it saying how its useless and just a gimmick. It really does have a host of practical uses you don't think about till you have one and play with it. Motors, computers, dimmer style light switches, electrical uses abound, finding holes in insulation, moisture behind walls, leaks, cooking (grill temp, water temp, fry-oil temp). If you are a clever handy-person, the uses are limitless. Want to know if your coffee is too hot to drink? Hilariously, I now know the thermal color that is my perfect coffee temperature. No more burnt tip-of-the-tongue.
Camera is legit. Not spectacular, but a fair number of options and pretty clean resolution. If you want a specialized camera phone, there are others which are better, but as someone who was looking for a nice solid camera, this is perfect. And it takes pictures underwater which is just.... lol. Almost no other phone does that. Gimmicky in my life (I don't spend much time in or near water), but cool nonetheless.
I would give this phone a 9/10. I only ding it a mark because it doesn't support 5GHz WiFi. My old Samsung Galaxy S4 mini supports it. For a flagship phone like this, in 2016, this is really unacceptable. I want soooo badly to give this phone a 10/10 but without 5GHz support, I simply cannot.
That being said, of all available phones, I choose this one. Even over phones I may give a 10/10. Its unsurpassed ruggedness, substantial feel/solid construction, visual appeal, and especially its host of unique and 'over-the-top' features make this phone the one for me. I will suffer 2.4GHz networking, just because this phone is so brilliant in every other way.

S60 and S7 are very differents phones. Depends of the use , I has boths , S7 is a Nice phone , fast , waterproof , great battery life , wonderfull camera but so fragile.
S60 is a normal configuration phone really fast , but so strong , real sumerged phone And the Flir Thermal camera is amazing , battery is great..
Is a real multitool phone.
Just need only three thing more for to be perfect .
Micro USB uncovered..now you must be open every time for charging.
Wireless Fm radio...you need to put a wiring phones for using this feature.
Uncovered earplug Jack..same thing that the charging , every time need to be open , but you can use a Bluetooth earphones.
All the rest ,is so fine..for me..

You can not enable 3G for both sim cards. When you set one, the other automatically changes for 2G.
I was changing and changing and always I went back to the previous page, it was 2G. A big shame... but I thought it could help.
why cat S60 have lot of prices some is 450$ 640$ 680$ 799$ but same model same specification
I live in lebanon, i bought the phone from amazon, everything's working properly except for the 3G, only 2G is working, knowing that on my previous phone I had no problem enjoying the 3G service. And knowing that I have update it the firmware today. Any suggestions?

With the correct firmware installed, the dual sim will work. The dual sim was not working on my phone at first and Cat UK told me that my phone will not work as a dual sim phone. But the Cat supplier where I bought the phone simply loaded a diffirent firmware version and it has been working perfectly since then.

hans, 02 Oct 2016how to enable 2 sim cards, mine see only 1 sim, i have inserted 2 working sims but only works ... moreWhat appears as a dual sim variant, may well be a single sim variant which is only for North American market. The second SIM module that you see, is installed in the phone, but it may be disabled or not working.
To check the simple way which phone model you have, look at the sticker on the top SIM slot. If it says "SD CARD", it probably is the single sim variant. If it has picture instructions for how to remove the top SIM card, then it may be the dual sim variant.
Some sellers sell the single SIM version as a dual SIM phone, but do not mention that to the customer. In the US, the single SIM variant is cheaper in general from the dual SIM model(which is not sold in the US), which is how they make profit - on the difference between prices and on the customer's unawareness.
To check the complex way if it is dual SIM model, first check to see what is the service provider band (in MHz) frequency for the country that you are in, then insert the 4G/LTE SIM card provided into the bottom slot, and turn on data and observe if the 'H' appears in the notification bar. If it does, then you should be able to insert the same SIM card into the top SIM slot and make the same observation.
If the 'H' does NOT appear in the notification bar, then it is the single sim variant.
I have a big problem with my CAT S60.
I just use one SIM on my phone ant it is inserted in the first slot.
I set the preferred network type of the first SIM in the settings menu on automatic mode.
My phone connects to the LTE network. As the LTE signal is not good in my area, the phone loses the connection often and then switches to 2G network instead of 3G and then it will not switches back to LTE when it's available. I should change the network type to 2G only or 3G only and the change it back to automatic mode to connect to LTE or I should turn the cellular data off and on to connect to the LTE.
I have a CAT S50 and it works fine in the same situation. When it loses the LTE signal, connects to 3G network and shows H or H+ and when the LTE singnal in fine, the phone switches back to LTE automatically.
I bought the phone in Iran without a warranty. I asked the CAT support team for any help and they told me I should call my original retailer and ask them if there is a problem with the phone or not.
I want to know if this is a software or hardware problem.
Is there anything I can do to solve the issue?
