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.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2017How long does the Cat S60 battery last? I'm in construction in South Africa, and I'm a lot on ... moreMy battery can last two days with normal use, three days with conservative use (some phone use, Google Maps). 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 !!!!

do you charge your phone with original charger? i had it charge with samsung charger sometimes and the battery dont last the same. also check the software version maybe need to upgrade.
Joey, 18 Oct 2016I live in lebanon, i bought the phone from amazon, everything's working properly except for th... morei wanna buy it , but a friend has your problem , only works on 2g, did you have any solution for your problem ?
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)
Could someone please post the first 8 digits of your IMEI number. My carrier requires it to check if the service will work.
Thanks in advance,

Just for comparison with ... moreIn terms of positional accuracy GPS is slightly better than GLONASS overall, but due to the different positioning of the GLONASS satellites, GLONASS has better accuracy at high latitudes

I'm removing it from charger in the morning and I'm using it AT LEAST in the evening not earlier then 22:00. Using: lte connection all the time, mail, youtube, camera...normal use on site...and the maximum was one Sunday(home) from 7:00 until Monday at 20:00 with one charge. You decide now. Before of thia I had 2 Samsung S5 abd one S3. This is 9/10 ...if it had IR he would be 10/10.
All the best!
