The phone feels solid and the thermal imaging seems pretty accurate, but that is where it ends.
The phone is buggy and feel more like a refined prototype than a production ready phone. I have had various app crashes and a few restarts. When watching YouTube videos through the app, the video and audio goes out of sync.
I have also not been able to connect to 4g networks.
If you are used to a flagship phone, the CAT's screen quality and touch responsiveness will be something to get used to.
Cat and the guys who built the phone for them will need to get their act together and put out some updates!
Ron, 28 Feb 2017you should go back to your reseller, they should be able to help you.. I had already contacted reseller, they say it is international version without warranty. The question is how a "reputed" company called Caterpillar Inc. misled consumers saying CAT S60 is 5meters water proof but the fact is, if it is immersed in 200 mm depth of fresh water for 1 minute the phone is completely damaged. This not cheating, people should be aware not to get misled from :reputed" company
Has anybody had the SIM cover spring open after a small drop ?
If so which version of the latch have you ?
I have this one, which has opened:
Has anybody got this type which looks more secure ? :
I am from India and I brought this CAT S60 in Nov. 2016 and two days back, first time i used it under fresh water for video recording for just 1 minute, water depth was only half meter, after taking it out all buttons are not working, screen was 'ON" for some time with water marks under it, now the screen is also not working, phone is water damaged now, like a scrape unusable set. I wrote to CAT company and they say since they dont have any official presence in India they cant do any thing. Can any one guide me to repair my phone. Since CAT company and its product are all reputed, I made a biggest mistake in believing them that CAT s60 is water proof for up to 5meters depth, and now I am paying for it.
Phone is overall good. Responds fast. Inspite of size and weight, it´s easy to operate single handed (that of course will depend on your hand size).
The cons I found so far: Overheats while engaging location and 3g/4g signal is low sometimes causing screen cover (the plastic film) to tend to peal off but nothing to worry.
Also the usb charging tab and headphone tab seem to be a little fragile, so I don´t know how long will they last, specially the usb connector wich is the one I use the most. Battery last reasonably well all day long, but I found it will depend on the strength of 4g signal.
Today I had an awkward issue, when the phone all of a sudden shut down. No power key would work. Only a red light tilting while connecting the charger. I read somewere that you should press the reset button (below the sd /sim card slot tab) which happens to be a tiny little hole, where you need to insert something thin and strong enough not to be bent, but also to press the reset button (i.g. those gadgets that come with Iphone to remove the sim) ; had to press it once and debug mode started, i selected reboot now and the phone boot again and was able to use it as nothing had happened, so far so good. Hope this won´t repeat.
All in all great phone.
Camera is useless, fancy numbers in specs but the pictures look like treated with noise and blur filters. In broad daylight.
Battery life is unreliable, software bugs can drain it in a day.
Nice build though.

zorro, 09 Feb 2017i must upgrade now and i want to choose between cat s 60 and conquest s 8 can anybody advise plseThat's easy the CAT, has andriod 6.0...
and better specs.
I have my Cat S60, since 11/11/16. My problem is that, recently I can not connect to WIFI on the hot spots like I used to. Error message, obtaining IP. And the other thing, the phone becomes so hot on the back whilst you are busy typing messages. The last one, my battery needs to be charged maybe twice a day. I am a bit busy with calls in the day, but late have to charge again.

As with most phones, WiFi causes most battery drain (over 40% in my case). See this S60 review for more info: http://www.skifactz.com/wifi/?p=301
