I have this phone over 3 months and it is the best i ever have.Water and mud ressistant.Durable and powerful phone.I like it.You should buy this phone.
The phone has been brilliant for me while installing solar electric, with connector and battery heat related issues showing up on the thermal camera. I've dropped this a few times without any worries. Its not a bad looking phone either, a bit weighty but I like the solidness and overall toughness that instills. Would recommend this phone.
Have it for 4 months now the S60 is the best phone ever owned since the early GSM days. Pros : Battery life (laid down powerbanks)- processor speed - responsiveness - look - ruggedness - Flir cam (covers far beyond the advertised distance)- strong flashlight - Never freezes - Excellent bundled charger (2000 mah) -
The only aspect in which the S60 does not excel are the average stills and slightly above average videos if compared to current smartphones cams. But this is a rugged phone with a FLIR cam
Cons : none except that accessories are scarce to find where I live.
I spend most of my time outdoors so the S60 is a dream phone for me. Highly recommended
MarkV, 22 Jun 2017From their website they do NOT plan to upgrade to Android 7.0Are they coming out with something new? How awful it can't be upgraded.. Rats!
So I've had this S60 cat phone for a couple of months now. Working perfectly......? Maybe cause I haven't put it in water or thrown it around? Think that is what people try first......Nothing is indestructible when it comes to using it everyday. Think the phone looks awesome. Had a Samsung Note 4 but had to repair it twice from dropping it less than 0.5m high. So the costs on repairs were crazy. So far so good. I would definitely go ahead and recommend a Cat S60. If I have any issues I will come back here and keep you updated.
Mike C, 04 May 2017Hi Johann
My battery lasts 3 days,have you contacted Ruggered Phones Or Cat SA they told me t... moreTerrible! Worst of all, CAT support SA does not even respond to complaints! Stay away! CAT is not worth the name "phone". Scam will suit them much better!
For now " rugged" does not feature in my vocabulary.
Rather go for trusted brands such as Samsung, Sony or even Huawei.
I am trying to resell my Cat to Cat Phones SA but they are not even interested!
Think this one will end up as a toy for my grandchild. Sad part is the phone is only five months old. So much for guarantee!
zorro, 09 Feb 2017i must upgrade now and i want to choose between cat s 60 and conquest s 8 can anybody advise plseDo not buy cat. Phones. You will lose you hard earned amount . I lost my money.
AnonD-674806, 05 Jun 2017I got my s60 as soon as it came out, bought my mine Dec 2016. But it has let me down big time.... moreI needed a phone with a good battery life. The CAT S 60 has amazing battery power. My Samsung S 6 could last only up until 12h00 daily on a full charge. I swopped my son who just acquired the new CAT. What a disgrace of a phone! Poor picture quality! Poor reception! Poor sound quality! But amazing battery!
Haha! Be careful what you wish for!
I got my s60 as soon as it came out, bought my mine Dec 2016. But it has let me down big time. Network very weak, having trouble when communicating to someone. Its "hello, hello, hello........ A small protection mesh for the speaker came out. Picture quality is poor.
I have like the fast charge on it though.
I would not try any CAT phone and I can not recommend it in any sense.
I have had this device for about 6 months, functionally the android app is working as it should... the body has some simple basic flaws... the MINI USB port cove has a piece of metal which fall off (especially because this lid will be open daily to charge). The mic par has a net which just fall off the other day.
So the intention of building a robust phone was achieved by they forgot very basic stuff which makes it unpleasent to own the device.
I would give it 2 stars (**)
Cat S60 was a good phone. Until one day (a few month after the purchase), after an Android update, the headset suddenly stopped working. It only recovers its function when I run the drying app. During the call it works fine, but when communication ends, it stops working. And so on.
I have contacted Cat technical service, but the usual maneuvers to recover the functions (hard reset, etc.) did not work. Having no technical support in Argentina, they concluded their intervention and regretted the fact.
What could not a hard blow was achieved by a simple operating system update.
I do not recommend here it even though it is highly praised by my colleagues when viewing their technical characteristics.
I ordered this phone as soon as it was announced, and i was waiting for it for several month, but after that I had very bad experience.
1. Battery hold only 6-8 hours.
2. Fast charge don't charge it as should be
3. Thermal camera is just for play, temperature is jumping
4. Camera is terrible, even impossible to take picture in fluorescent light.
5. Most important is that GSM, BT and GPS network is disappearing whenever it wants.
I already have the forth S60, because first three was changed as factory defect, but this forth is the same.
First 4 problems sucks but the last is deadly, this phone is too expensive to have such problems.
Worst that I can't find any other phone to change this with my need of at least: Dual sim; IP IP68 with drop-of; Gorilla3; 8 cores; 3 Ram; primary camera with flash 12mp; wi-fi; BT; GPS; and FM radio
In the mobile market, i find a lot protected smartphone, but most of them have the same design, and has a fairly simple screens.
The company Aermoo decided that a secure mobile device can also be strong, and introduced the worldÂ’s first Â“smartphone-SUVÂ” with edge-to-edge display called Aermoo.
The look of this smartphone already shows where it is headed: to become an off-road beast. As such: in addition to resisting water and water splashes at 1 meter depth for up to half an hour, its IP-68 specification gives it protection against dust. And its shockproof design will make it hold even in the fall.
Aermoo come with 5.2 inch LCD IPS screen, Processor MediaTek MT6757, 5,000 mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat, Shockproof design and elements with IP-68 certification, NFC, Rear camera capable of taking 84 Megapixel photos.
so i think Aermoo is Best choice for me.
Coming of small protection mesh from speaker
under warranty they send 2
camera not impressive but this is working phone not gay phone
I will prefer to buy Aermoo M1 !! ITS 84 MP CAMERA has amazed me . Imagine the level of photography that one can attain by this smartphone plus it is a waterproof as its IP68 certification ensures the total protection against dust and water and it has nougat (7.0 )..its huge battery of 5000 mah facilitate in busy life ...it will worth your money so give it a try :)
I bought one in USA for the rest of the world versión. This is total unclear nominación,
Really is EU versión ( and not Rest of the World Version) and American Version ( Inclusive Sudamerica ).
Please take care and control the antenas previous to decide.
Great machine CAT S 60
