I want to buy this phone, but just want to know when is a good time. How long would it take them to iron out bugs?
I sent them an email to ask them how much to replace the battery, but they don't have that info. As the battery is non-removable.....

Thanks for the info but can you please be more specific? the embedded thermal camera app does not have a manual calibration option further than the automatic calibration button which actually sets the scenery using the average temperature and changes continuously making it hard to distinguish a man having 30 degrees from a wall having 25 degrees in 10m distance. Can I lock somehow the 25 degrees background to be blue for example so I can have the man red/orange/yellow?
Thanks in advance.

I have had time finding cat s60 FLIR Thermal Camera Technical Specification. Is it -5...+100C or -50....+1000C camera?
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2016cat s60 or samsung s7 edge?? which one is the better phone??Dear depend for what you need. Cat is beast in term of durability but hardware is midrange nothing special so for games and other heavy task will lose without any question with S7. So unless you will go to war or have job/hobby which require enormous durability I think S7 be better. P.S Have not gyroscope(Cat gsmarena specs) so any games and few task will be impossible for Cat. P.S Is very honest answer because Im anty-fan of samsung(since S6). If you want better advice then must specify what you demand from smartp. Regards.
What is the model number of the different variants? I cannot tell which is which when searching online.

LeDarkAngel, 16 Sep 2016My phone reboot by himself several time à day... Anybody else ? I had several unexpected restarts. Than I noticed, that it restars only in my cardan box when sim cover is in contact with box. Vibration was the guilty.
The camera is always making noise when taking pictures is it possible to mute it?
Thermal camera is nice but only for cold environments, when ambient temp is more than 30 Celsius, you cannot see people around easily as the camera (or the SW) cannot distinguish the difference and all seem orange-yellow. I guess with a fine tune in the sensitivity of a future release will be able to perform better.
But it is a fantastic phone, I wish it was 20% smaller...
LeDarkAngel, 16 Sep 2016My phone reboot by himself several time à day... Anybody else ? Interesting... my phone has not done that. Once it froze but reset button helped. Turned out to be an app that was messing up something.
Self reboots are 99.9 % software related. Either some faulty app or settings, or some apps that do not work together wery well.
Try to uninstall everything that you installed since this problem occured and reset permissions of all apps. If that does not fix it, backup you data and do factory reset. And if that is also not helping, try another sim card(s). (Do not use self cut nano sims)

I wonder how many are getting a loose charger latch seeing as its the most used port.
The Aluminum charger latch came loose and is now missing, maybe in my washer, the rubber flap still keeps the phone waterproof. instead of the nice latch, now there is a black hole which can not be opened without a flat screwdriver. Called customer service, got RMA to return the phone via DHL, now got an email the service parts are not available at this time... They keep me posted to when I can get it fixed... Be careful with the latch!
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2016Well no matter how well firmware is dual SIM phones will always consume a lot more battery jui... moreIf you think two sim cards consume too much battery, then use only one. But in my experience this phone needs to be charged only twice a week even with two sim cards so i don't see your point.
As for improvements and XDA - SDK is already released by CAT
You say your phone randomly freezes during calls or hanging up ? My CAT S60 has never freezed. Either you have defective phone or some software problem. (did you upgrade your software ?) There is also a chance that these freezes can be related to your carrier.
You also mentioned there is no option to select custom alarm ringtone. I don' t know why are you mentioning this here, because this is where hardware related things are being discussed. Remember: phone is just a hardware - what can and can not be done with it depends mostly on software (within the limits of hardware). If you can not change your alarm ringtone, you should damn the Android 6 Marshmallow software, but in this case - yourself. Because it is actually possible and very easy - open your app drawer, then clock and then you should be on the page where you can add alarms. Each added alarm has small white arrow (pointing down) Click this arrow and you can see more options. There is a text: "Default Ringtone (Cesium)" Click on it and change it to what you want. This method makes possible to put different ringtones to each alarm.
Camera could be faster indeed. But it is not the worst either. As for different camera apps - i can not say for sure that there is not single one that shoots faster. Needs further checking.
CATtester, 24 Aug 2016For anybody considering this phone I would stay clear and rather buy additional flir camera in... moreYou either have a defective unit, or your carrier is useless. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the reception capability of the S60. I live in a rural area and this thing gets more signal than anything else I've ever owned, in more places.
Voice quality is unbelievably crisp even with 1 bar.
Are you sure you are not using the international version in the USA or an area where you only have support for a couple of the LTE bands? Because it sounds a lot like you are only able to pick up one of the bands on offer by your carrier.
Having owned this since UK release, the port cover for the usb/charge doesnt sit flush anymore. Looks like the rubber inner plug is detaching from the outer cover on the hinged bit
Can t see in the dark with termo must light so termo visio it is not good as a real termocamera.for smartphone all right.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2016As I said - no advertising. This i my first CAT phone ever, so not a fanboy. And why should i ... moreWell no matter how well firmware is dual SIM phones will always consume a lot more battery juice... Also I doubt that flir and cat will share any source codes with XDA so chances you will get any improvements in firmware is nearly zero... I also noticed that there are random freezes during calls or hanging up.... And there is no option to select custom alarm ringtone, done it with folders but still shame it's not there... Btw camera is slow on shooting too, takes about second or two to make shot tried different app still same. Loudspeaker is awesome on it.
