Have cat s60 for 6 months now - reality check - it was already in warranty - battery issue -got very hot while discharge and charging, fast charge stopped working.. after warranty replacement battery works fine, but today mesh over the loudspeaker came off. phone got much louder but i fear dust damage. Camera is crap. everything else is good enough. i have dropped it many MANY times no worries about mechanical damage i t holds as promised. flir is great for firefighter work, water resistant is good for me (havent submerged fully just splash water thou)
Overall this is a good phone, impressive IR cam and superb battery life. However it is suck on roaming and data roaming, it is unable to start the data roaming automatically even it was enabled. Need to reboot the phone to make it work @_@.
Beside this, you will get an annoying notification said "No service - Selected network (xyz) unavailable" when the 3G roaming SIM is disabled, this shouldn't happen.
cons: the camera camera is bad.
pros: everything else. great battery life, waterproof to 5 meters, touchscreen works with gloves and underwater, the screen doesn't get scratches even when dropped on small stones, and the thermal camera is lots of fun, the phone has no other weaknesses than the cons listed above. also great customer support (i needed a new screen protector, the customer support just aked where i lived, then they express-mailed me 1, for free - also a free screen protector is in the package) (lastly, personally i would prefer a larger screen, but that's just me)
I have one issue,touchscreen is very sensitive.Touchscreen/input settings set to minimum.Any idea?But otherwise it good phone,lots of fun with flir
Have mine for an year now. Overall a good phone, but the camera is real shayt! Lots of fun with the IR cam though!
got this S now for 1 year. I want an other phone. Camera is bad! The picts arte not sharp. Cat send you back and forward.
Bluetooth does not work fine with earpeace or carkit if wifi is on!
I've had a b15 for about four years, as I am working in harsh environments, I am really happy that I bought this phone, and now I am going to buy s60, however I would like to know that whether the RAM of s60 is good enough to support apps or not. This was the disaster of b15 with 512
AnonD-528203, 20 Apr 2016This looks attractive, first one I have seen with built in thermal imaging although Apple has ... moreBattery IS REMOVABLE> Just peel off backside fiber /plastic/ cover very slow and carefully /from the bottom to the top/, you would see then black metal cover lid with a few bolts.Unscrew them,open the lid carefully,and you would see the battery inside.Then you can easily remove and change the battery.After that - put cover on,screw the bolts, and just put on carefully self sticking black plastic cover..That is all..
Great phone for work untill batery died right when I needed it the most. Went abroad and couldn't find an approved repairer so I took it to a local shop to try get out some stuff I had in it for work that's how I found out it was the batery faulty.Of course warranty is voided so back home I am offered to buy another in exchange by the repairer who didn't bother to check the cause even after I told them.
Asked CAT to sell me a new battery so I can fix it myself and they keep on sending me to the repairer who didn't bother in the first instance to check the problem...They said they don't comercialise the parts and only the'approved centres' can get them. Now I'm stuck with a phone and no battery with everything I have for work on it.
If anyone can point me a way to purchase a batery even a shitty one that lasts an hour but works please let me know.
Worst investment I have done.
Looks good but that's preety much of it.
Grejac82, 30 Aug 2017I have Cat S 60 from March 2017. After immersion in 0.5m sea water, phone stop working. Power ... moreMine is waterproof I lost it in 0.5 meters of sea water for 15mins, works fine, made a call on it when it was still wet. Did not even have to rinse with fresh water just used speaker dry ap. Phone works fine, typing this message on it right now
mau, 03 Sep 2017It says waterproof, NOT sea water proof, the salt water will provoke corrosion!!! You need to ... moreThey claim it's IP68 and MIL 810G certified, says it right there in the specs, so it should be water AND salt proof; no reason to die from immersion, even in salt water - definitely not at 0.5 meters...
The best practical smartphone I have seen. For a person who works that is must have.
Best phone. Looks great and cool screen, waterproof shock proof, capabilities are endless, imaging is fast and really one of the best, focusing and analytics best that money can buy, up to point. I will never use any other phone it just given me so much more.

I guess this is the worst phone i have ever had,I bought cat S60 in may 2017,I have taken it for repairs more than 6 times,it gets hot when u make long calls,when u charge it get very hot,sometimes it goes blank,nothing apears on the screen,I am so disappointed with cat S60,& i hope cat can improve in there subsequent releases.S60 is a disaster!
This phone sucks! The first phone camera died in 3 months. They sent a new one which lost ability to connect to the cell network. 4 months and two returns later same thing. Both returns came back from service with a note saying "nothing wrong"! Super frustrating. Cat ripped me off! They should stick to heavy equipment.
Awesome phone my galaxy s8 is at bay now. Tired of changing glass bodies of pussyphones.
This one does it all. No problems whatsoever with waterproofing. I went snorkeling with it just to test it and dove beyond 5 m for sure and nothing happened- the phone as new. Comprehensive layout is another thing. I love the solid feel of it and the way it performs in conditions I wouldn't use a phone normally in.
