i have a question, if this is a phone for the industry and construction why don you put inside any of your smartphones a magnetic sensor as other brands?, the magnetometer is one of the most important tools in industry and construction, like motorola did, and samsung, and huawei, etc... and does´t came with fingerprint ? and only 4 ram? for a 900 eur, the cat s61 is very short in a lot of features
had s60 from day it came out, really disappointed with CAT with this new release. They made S61 bigger?! they haven't recessed buttons so they will still accidentally press in your pocket and trigger apps etc drain battery. No wireless charging?!!! Again to use them flaps which everyone already complained about. Hope they revised aerial and signal is better on them? Lenzes not alu ring, just plastic? is it budget cutting? Price tag is way out. I think CAT needs to go back to drawing board. not sure if I actually need to upgrade now.
dear people complaining about the price of the device. please note that all cell phones take a hit in price because of the industries demand for components such as ram which goes in to video cards and standard ram. the whole bitcoin craze forced prices on components to rise not only in the PC industry but also the cellphone industry. when things cool off and component prices, perhaps cellphone prices will drop too.
you can look up apple and samsung rushing to get GDDR class memory before video card manufacturers. google that and you'll see what's up. they have to pay more that GPU to manufacturers to secure the hardware first....sigh....
Zubi, 16 Mar 2018Too expensive,, considering that the galaxy s9 is around $700And an S9 is rugged, has thermal, laser measuring and VOC sensor?
I hope it will be built as durable as the previous model. Yes there were a few minutes minor flaws as to the s60 but I work In a demanding field of work. That phone has honestly saved me from needing to by a new phone countless times. How many phones can be driven on by a dodge diesel while face down on a dirt road and not even have a cracked screen. Not to mention all the other horrible things I did to it. I will definitely buy the new model if this one finally somehow decides to give up on the torture I put it through... not sure that will happen anytime soon at this rate.
It is a shame they did not include a stylus, such as the Samsung Note series.
A DAB Radio would have been a great unique feature.
People brag about internet radio, but it real sucks.
I also wish they had a 'call answer' and 'call drop' button.
The FLIR (Thermal Camera) is great for personal safety. If you have to walk down a dark street at night, you can spot someone lurking in the dark in the shadows, using the camera.
Great for those who go camping and spot wildlife in the dark....
I hope they learn from the build quality of the S60. Port covers and speaker grills falling off just shouldn't happen.
Very pricy. The S60 price was reasonable, but this really limits it to company purchases for a lot of people.
Voc would be interesting for me as I work in the chemical industry, flir has been useful, tape maesure would be useful. I rwally can't justify the cost though, so sticking with S60 until it dies
I have an old s60 on my test and I can say that the cell phone is full of flaws and the flirt cam is not something special. Frankly, the phone is a junk of the device and explains why and why.
As a new buyer came the bumpy, camera was a mute picture, after a while the loudspeaker did not work cleanly but already cracked, on the front underneath the screen of the falling wire covering the loudspeaker, the mask on the back was scratched, when I get a call on the screen I can not answer because does not react honestly the mob is not worth 200euros and belongs to the expensive cell phone. And for the end my buddy was mad at the same model, because every bit of it was broken and advertised as a tough and resistant mob.
Ahmed, 24 Feb 2018900 EUROS? (108000 RS). A 5.2 INCH DISPLAY, JUST A 1080P DISPLAY?! QSD 630?! What is this expe... moreYou clearly know nothing about thermal cameras. That module alone is expensive. The build of the phone is another story as well.
900 EUROS? (108000 RS). A 5.2 INCH DISPLAY, JUST A 1080P DISPLAY?! QSD 630?! What is this expensive waste? The only thing favorable is the camera at such price point. It should be 350 euros
Why ? Oh why single sim in South Africa? Pressure from networks perhaps? The dual sim is one of the main reasons I took the Cat S60and I still love it.
