Have had this phone for 3months now bought it for my husband to start the summer with a decent phone. Footing a big bill for it im not impressed that it is not staying on. It has yet to see a real rugged construction lufe as the season begins end of this month heavy. The ohone shut off the first time and we reset the battery an voila it worked..... For a week.... Then it shut of again an could only be used while plugged in.... Now not at all. Very frustrated and unsure what to do. I read some reviews on the next lowest model and they are not good. My hubby needs a good phone. An up until thos problem this phone has been a godsent and he loves it but is very upset. It is a business phone for him and he uses it for emailing and pictures and keeping in touch with clients. Thats it... Whats weong with it and how to get fixed. If cat sends a new phone i dont want the same problem but am concernwd it will happen again :( not sure a downgrade will be nearly as impressive as this phone has been until now...
works great, stream internet radio all day and youtube on lunch and still has 49% battery. FLIr camera is ok for close diagnostics and moderate temperature gradients, nowhere near the performance of it's $2500 bigger brother though. Can watch footsteps on carpet or electrical wires getting warm under load (sensitivity is about 0.5C) and the resolution isn't the greatest so outdoor shots past 20ft (like seeing deer in the dark) doesn't work all that well.
Wife tested the phone in the washer for 15min, it survived just fine. The sides of the phone are textured aluminum and with dry skin is a challenge to hold on to.
Overall I like this phone, it's a niche phone and kinda thick for some pockets, but perfect for makers and engineers. The OS allows you to "Extend" the internal memory onto the SD card as long as its a class 10 speed (I have a 32GB card in there now, might support a 64/128GB card as long as its a class 10)
Bob, 28 Mar 2017Hi, seems your phone has a problem, so rather than saying its not waterproof you might want to... moreDear Bob! I agree with you that that my phone has a problem, the problem is inbuilt and it was damaged because it was not waterproof. Other wise it wont get damaged within 30 seconds and at 200 mm water depth, this was the first time I used in water. When I contacted CAT support they just replied me saying that they dont have official service center in India, and now its worthless scrap.

this phone is not water proof, use it in water for even 30 seconds and its gone. I used it for video recording for few seconds at 200mm depth, and immediately got damaged. now its dumped in dry garbage bin. A "reputed' company can also fool people easily What company says is all farce. I made a mistake in believing them and learnt a good lesson. If people say its water proof, than its lie or they simply believe false specifications.

I purchased my Cat S60 November 2016. I noticed when I use the phone for viewing videos or playing games or just on it for some time on the internet, the area where the camera is gets very hot. I have to stop using it so it can cool down. Is this normal as other previous phones(not a Cat phone model) I had did not do this. Is it a concern, should I send it for assement. Also the silver cover for my charging terminal fell off and is lost, only the black rubber is left. Is there a guarantee on this as it is not even 6 months old.
Pilamore, 08 Mar 2017Does anyone know how to enable second sim? I bought US variant and it only comes with one IMEI... moreIf CAT themselves told you that you cannot enable the second sim then you probably should NEVER:
1. Customize Firmware based on the Manufacturing Firmware
2. Open the Phone and short some pins (if necessary) to update Firmware
3. - and Ever Customize Firmware based on the Manufacturing Firmware
