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.

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

I upgraded my s60 with an automatic upgrade of 600 megs and now the thermal camera has completely deregulated and the camera full of black scratches. What do I do.
I received a cat S60 from the us . I'm in south Africa . I'm at wits end on the data connection . This handset gives me 2G edge only. I have tried all networks still the irritating E remains. I took it to my network provider and they were completely baffled. everything else works perfectly save for 3G 4G pliz help !!!!

After my few months of ownership, the bad points are:
1) Had a few lockups that require the reset button to be pressed. No major but could miss an important call or not have a pin handy
2) Sometimes loses the FLIR and needs to reboot
3) The usb cover has fallen off. Still seals with the rubber tab. I'm not sending it away for a month for one to be glued back on.
4) The mesh cover over the mic is getting pushed in and the mesh coming unstuck at the top edge above the mic hole. Will probably need to reglue that sometime when it gets worse.
Other than those niggles it's pretty good.
It's survived being wet on the livery washing down horses and doing waters, being dropped onto concrete, getting wet in the rain, and me falling very hard off a horse in canter. I see loads of iPhones with cracked screens at the livery so I think the robustness is pretty good. Just let down slightly by a couple of bits coming loose.
I would definitely buy another if given a choice.
(oh, and UK second sim works perfectly on 2G)
