my speaker suddenly scratchy and soft even though no water involved. sound is distauted through speaker, any advice please
kouroupp, 31 Jan 2019It seems really hard to take a full STABLE photo,with that phone...Any suggestions?No answer... But commiserating. The FLIR and air sensor make my crew safer, but it's a dissapointing trade off.
Bully, 03 Mar 2019S61 is CRAp. Will not chargeSame issue with battery, charges to 100% in less than 15 minutes, drains even quicker.

I use a CAT60 sigle SIM bought in USA with a Airtel 4G SIM in India. It only connects as 2G in Airtel. Phone connection is fine. I tried Vodafone and Jio SIMs and they both connect in 4G. Since it is single SIM, I am unable to put a 2nd SIM of Vodafone or Jio to connect in 4G.
As far as I can tell, S61 has all the data and phone connectivity as S60 plus some more additional specifications. So, S61 should work at least as well as the S60 in India as a phone and data, or, better. Right?
But, S61 will not work in India is what I read from many web sites. Can you please explain?
Even if I shake while holding down the S61 button, I will hear a sound from S61. Just holding down the button got a small sound.
Hisa, 29 Dec 2018I shake S61 and I get a rattling noise. What is the cause of this?Can be one of the side buttons, maybe the orange one

I own my S61 for a week now. I am happy with my choice. It is not the fastest, or the lightest (by far), but for me it gets the job done. It's a different kind of flagship product, so if you expect a posh smartphone, forget about it. It is more of a reliable piece of machinery than a sports car.
I make heavy use of the the FLIR camera, so the phone makes my life easier. The ruggedness is impressive but it does not rise to the level of my old Sonim XP7.
The only issue Ii had/have with it is the ambient temp sensor. For some reason it shows a distorted ambient temperature, that sometimes is very far from reality. I used a bunch of apps and all show the same value, which seems to be related more to the inside component temp that ambient. Does any other owner have a similar problem? I saw some YT clips in witch the AIR app shows some pretty high values for ambient temp, however no complaints.
Catherine the Great, 26 Nov 2018That's not something the average person needs thoughNo, so they are not phones for the average person...
Bob, 26 Nov 2018Does your phone with a case come with FLIR, VOC and laser distance measurement? That's not something the average person needs though

Honestly, I find these phones useless. You can just get a phone of your choice and get a case (that is just as durable) and a screen protector. Let's be honest, would you really be having accidents (like dropping) with your phone very often?
