I have problems with my CAT S61. During the using of phone , it can go to lock screen, and after that the phone losing the GSM signal(data connection), I need unlock the screen and wait for 5-8 seconds for the GSM signal appearing. it can happened some times per minutes, can happened one time per hour.
I not sure if the phone working in good condition during the sleeping mode.
This is second S61. first phone, restarted itself during using and I send back to retailer.

why the HEck would you do with slooow and expensive wirless charging? even when you have fast changing?
wait wait wireless charging will make the phone that is all ready bulky even thicher (or decreasing the battery size)
a Rugged mobile with wireless charging ? how does that sounds like?
just go for Doggee and UIfone and wish that it won't lag to death (or explode)
decided not to buy as not wireless charging. the dust cover on case for charger port is too flimsy and too hard to open with my builders fingers. Even my 4 year old samsung was wireless, you would expect a new phone to be wireless charge by now at this top price product.They should ditch the air detector and have wireless charge instead
I have had my phone for several weeks now and am very happy with the product. I have dropped it numerous times (on purpose) to show people that phones can be durable, and I demonstrated its waterproof functionality by taking pictures underwater.
One surprise benefit is the default setting on the air quality sensor is to alert on unhealthy air - which has gone off several times, letting me know that I should leave an area or improve the ventilation.
The infrared camera alone is worth half the cost of the phone since I have used it to help diagnose air conditioning problems, and ensure my dryer vent hose wasn't leaking. I have had several friends and coworkers ask if I can come by their homes this winter to look at their windows and doors to identify leaks.
Now, it doesn't have the fanciest camera, or the sleek look of other phones in this price range; but I will take the functionality and durability over flashy features any day.
Just bought a S61, I have used once in water and phone went blank. I had S60 before didnt have a problem like that before

To resolve your problem, we would recommend that you place your phone for 24h in a bag of dry rice. The rice should drain the liquid and may solve your problem, then, open the SIM slot cover and press and hold for 5 seconds the Reset button
I just took the s61 on a trip to Kyrgyzstan - lots of mountains, etc. and I can tell you that the phone performed admirably -great GPS, and absolutely no chinks or scratches in the casing, it is VERY well-built. And yes, it does not have a fingerprint reader - and I AM HAPPY that it doesn't. Usually I don't even use a screen lock anyway. It has a LOT OF SENSORS - great for weather forecasting in the mountains. The camera is very OK, if I really want great pictures I'll use a DSLR. And 4k video that is so-so. The screen is bright enough to be used in strong sunlight. All in all I am extremely satisfied, and I am planning to use it for many things - especially outdoors.

If its 35 degrees outside and you try to spot an object with the same kind of temperature it will be much harden then if it would be freezing and a cow/human is an obvious hot spot in the distance much further than 30 meters
Can someone with the phone answer these questions ?
Can you shoot and post some actual outside pictures taken with the Flir ?
If posting is not possible can you tell me how far can you detect and identify an animal or a human outside ?
For example if you see a cow 150m (165yd) away, can you detect it ? If yes when can you identify if it's a cow or a pig for example .
A year ago we upgraded wife's Note 3 (only chrome plastic cover worn after multiple drops) to S7 Edge, that was a disaster, that phone is terrible (OS freezing on regular basis (latest version), overheating, child already broken glass display while unboxing, back glass broken couple of month later). It still feels like it was a downgrade.
I replaced my Note 3 that I had been using for 5 years (only chrome plastic cover worn after countless drops) with S61.
It took a whole day to customize it so it feels the same as I had set up Note 3. But with this phone I feel like I upgraded to a new phone with same functionality as Note 3, but better.
I want to ask You, can we see a review for this phone here? I hope yes. Thank you.

Main issue with cat s40 was inaccurate GPS, which loose position very offten, did they fix it on their newer devices?
I bought it, good quality, solid and fast.
Is there anybody that already check it with 256GB SDXC card?
randomguy, 18 Jul 2018no fingerprint.... :( old FLIR sensor :(But much better case, voc sensor and laser.
I had a nice chat with Flir and they confirmed that the phone has 80x60 resolution Lepton module, the same that CAT S60 had. The only difference is, that it is calibrated to allow for higher temperature readings.
Wulf, 10 Jul 2018The FLIR camera's resolution is 1.440 x 1.080 pixelSorry, but the FLIR sensor does not have a resolution that high.
The highest resolution sensor currently available is 640x480 which would cost you a multitude of thousands of dollars.
The Lepton sensor used in the S60 was 80x60, possibly this is the same for the S61 unless they use a Lepton 3 which has 160x120.
Since i saw the S61 supports high and low gain mode however, I can only assume they utilise the 160x120 Lepton 3 module.
