Now I shall replace battery one month before seven years. It may switch of s60 after some hours, but some time last full day. Bad thing was rubber cover for usb/power socket, it not last for 2 years garranty and after was broken too, so it was without cover. Now I shall replace usb/power socket too. My phone is damaging memory sd cards, but internal 28 Gbytes are enough for me.
Very good phone for hard enviroment and I look for new CAT 5G phone with termal camera
After 4 weeks of use my CAT s62 pro overheated and warped. I sent it on for warranty repairs and the have refused to repair it under warranty. They claim it must have been sat on but that’s a total lie. Even if it had been sat on which, it has NOT, it’s supposed to be a rugged phone for christ sake!!!!!
Disappointing all round. I won’t be using them again. I was going to get my whole company on them but not now.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS
I want to buy this for my brother hopefully he cant break this one🤣
The most bad phone for the money!Low life battery and lack of non updating just make it worse!

plugged in the phone to charge overnight. Next morning the back was completely swollen. won't turn on. Glad it didn't catch fire or explode
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2022Would have been nice for phones in this series to have a removable battery.Open and replace
Released in 2016, costs hands and legs then, still rocking android 6 till now. Wow👏
Would have been nice for phones in this series to have a removable battery.
James Dean, 29 Jun 2021Poor quality battery life. Les than a year and had battery reduced. Phone keeps losing charge ... moreHad the same problem and im also essential worker this is not recommendable for EMS workers
If you expect a rugged phone like this to have the best camera for selfies, then you'll be sorely disappointed.
But if you want a brick that can withstand almost any handling and have a battery that will last for more than 24 hours unless you use it to play mobile games for 12hours straight, then this is pretty good
People talk about heaven and this phone this phone does fine for me maybe know how to use it
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2020Are you kidding? Are you trying to make people think this super fast in 2016, still faster tha... moreWhat a violent response. Looks like someone has Mummy Issues and a jumbo chip on their shoulder. This phone is a piece of junk. Read google reviews. The majority of people (including myself) think this phone sucks. Glad you like it though. There will be special place for you both in phone heaven 😉
S60 its rubbish!
Poor quality battery life. Les than a year and had battery reduced. Phone keeps losing charge quickly, there is no way you could charge another phone of this or have it last for days as claimed. This phone failed me during covid, I was without a phone. I purchased as I'm an essential worker, I need a phone as I'm providing support to people through covid. This phone was sold as appropriate for heath workers. It is far from being that. In the middle of a lock down the only option they offered was for a courier to pick up. There is no couriers operating in a lock down and during a pandemic as an heath worker I need to be contactable. I wouldn't support this brand as it was promoted.
Just purchased they Cat S60. It seems nice but, once I have connected it to WIFI and added my google account, after 5 seconds an introduction application starts that once finished, cannot be exited and blocks almost the entire screen rendering the phone useless.
Well I used to love the phone. Have used it for 4.5 years now. Changed the battery once. It is not the fastest nor has good speeker or microphone.
The camera is another story that does not produce anything you might want to share with others.
But it has the IR camera and can withstand anyting. That I love it for. But here is the thing. Have run into problems regarding the OS. It comes standard with android 6 and now in 2021 app developers are starting to discontinue this android version.
Have been in touch with catphones support and they will not update the firmware. Nor do they come with any instructions in how to help their customers. They just say that it is our problem now the customers have bought their product.
I guess that this is their policy to keep us buying new phones to stay updated.
However I stated to their support staff that I would go from a praiser of their products to one that would never consider buying from them again. And that I would share my experience. This did not even get me an reply from their support staff.
So my advice it to steer clear af this product. It is tough and up for the job but without support I will be going for some other brand.
Thanks for reading my rant 🙂

I had CAT S40, then S60, and now S61 and I never had any problems (I changed the battery for S40 and 1 battery for S60 for 4 years of use) and once again cleaned the microphone from dirt.
I think these smartphones are the best protected ones!
Have owned the S60 for almost 5 years now, I just love the phone. I work in agriculture besides a very active lifestyle, the S60 is indestructible. It is true that it is the not the fastest smartphone out there but I'm sure it's one of the most rugged and solidly built phones. For almost 5 years the only problems were that I had to change the battery twice and aftermarket batteries are not of a good quality besides finding a supplier who ship to Lebanon where I live. In general and after market battery lasts no more than 1 year. But I'm not planning to let go my S60 before which I used to change my phone for damage (accidental dropping, water leak, cracked screen) for about 3-4 times a year. Overall the S60 is a very underrated phone and I highly recommend it.
