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.

I have Cat S 60 from March 2017. After immersion in 0.5m sea water, phone stop working. Power button is stuck in off position. There is repair service in Serbia "Begram" and they told me that phone is dead, i can not be repaired. So i contact Cat support, and they sad to me that i have to contact my retailer. So, the phone is now in Hungary. 20 days.
The phone is good but it's NOT WATERPROOF.
I have had the s60 for 8 months. This is not a light weight game playing picture taking phone. It's a durable reliable phone. I've gone swimming with it in my pocket, I've dropped it on construction sites. It does what it's supposed to. Thermal is accurate. It's worth the money in my opinion
Ok, update. Got the S60 back today, they replaced the swolen battery under warranty, and i got it back! btw, i never tested the water story, but overall this is a good phone. Can use it for 4 days one one load, but i removed most apps. I use it just for the basic stuff like phone, mail, WA, sms. No games, of movies or other stuff.
Dropped my S60 last week from my pocket while descending the Col d'Izoard in the French Alps. Was doing about 65kph at the time. Cycled back up to pick up the bits, amazed to find it completely un-damaged, except for a tiny scuff on one corner. If you want cutting edge game playing look elsewhere. If you want something reliable that can survive knocks and splashes that would destroy other phones, get an S60. Simples
I put it 10cm in wather and wather come in even after I carefully close all covers, I have luck and I get new one after 2 months of struggle, sell it immediately and no more CAT phones in my pocket...

Got mine on 29-07-16, and slowly the battery seems to grow & grow &grow. The backside is almost loose at the moment, the battery is pushing it off.
You also see the effect of the growing batt on the display, a 1 inch darker part is appearing.
mailed CAT 2 weeks ag, and got a reply for detailing the problem, and i'll guess a RMA process will start?
