A rugged smartphone that can cope with almost any environment

CAT S31

from Notebookcheck

The CAT S31 is a solid smartphone whose main task is not to break. It achieves this in any case, but users have to do without demanding applications.

A solid choice for anyone on the market for a rugged smartphone

CAT S41

from TrustedReviews

If you're a self employed handy-person or extreme-sports enthusiast in need of a rugged smartphone, the CAT S41 is a great choice. Featuring a robust, albeit chunky build and offering excellent battery life and a pleasingly bloatware-free Android install, the CAT S41 is one of the best ruggedised phones to arrive this year.

This phone knocks it out of the park

CAT S41

from The Gadgeteer

This is the first phone I've used that could actually be a contender for the slot in my pocket. Most days, I don't need anything this rugged, or with this much battery life, though. If your mileage varies, I recommend it! At $449.00, it's not a bad value.

Might be a better shovel than a phone

CAT S41

from Digital Trends

The Cat S41 is simply too expensive for what it offers. Your phone will be able to suffer multiple drops and will get amazing battery life, but you’ll have to suffer through average performance, a near-worthless camera, and boring design.

Rugged with an integrated power bank

CAT S41

from Android Headlines

If you're in need of a rugged smartphone that can withstand plenty of tough situations and take a little damage here and there, and has an IP68 rating against dust and water, then it's hard not to recommend this device.

The phone endures, the camera does not

CAT S41

from Tom's Guide

The Cat S41 is ideal for those who demand the utmost durability, at nearly half the cost of the Galaxy S8 Active. But the S41's camera and just average performance spoil the package.

A rugged smartphone that delivers the goods and then some

CAT S41

from TechRadar

The Cat S41 has hit a sweet spot by going after an audience who will know about the brand, and are likely to request VAT refunds and look for a solid aftersales service – which similarly priced Chinese-sourced rivals won't be able to match on either count.

A niche product that is aimed at those with a very rugged lifestyle

CAT S60

from Digit

The CAT S60 is not a phone for you and me. It's actually not a phone for most of us. It belongs to a niche market segment. We wish the regular market could have some of this ruggedness, or be at least 30% as rugged as this phone. For a rugged phone, the CAT S60 actually seems to be quite a device...More

The CAT S60 is not a phone for you and me. It's actually not a phone for most of us. It belongs to a niche market segment. We wish the regular market could have some of this ruggedness, or be at least 30% as rugged as this phone. For a rugged phone, the CAT S60 actually seems to be quite a device. If you are looking for a phone that can keep up with your rough and tumble lifestyle, there are hardly many phones that can compete with the CAT S60. It is currently in a class of its own.

Rugged to the bone

CAT S60

from Fone Arena

The CAT S60 is a tool. We can’t recommend anyone to buy this as a phone first. As a smartphone, the CAT S60 is grossly overpriced and over-engineered. You can get any current flagship smartphone within the same budget but then again, the CAT S60 isn’t just a smartphone.

Phone overheated, I went through the correct outlets (where you would usually send your phone for warrenty repairs) and explained that i realized my warrenty was up but is there any way I could pay for the shipping and repair through them. Nope, find a local phone repair shop. They won't touch it after warrenty. No shops have any parts. This is an impossible hassle to try to get anything fixed. Please don't make my mistake buying this phone. Less

I bought the phone in the beginning of Feb 2015 and it worked great for about 3 months. It started doing weird things like calling out to a different number while I was talking to someone, shutting off on its own while in my pocket, not responding when I tried to use it, and various other things. It then fell out of my pocket from only about 2 feet off the ground and the screen cracked. Just like the previous reviewer stated, it is impossible to find a repair facility to fix it. Less

Not a tough phone, broke 2 screens and now are not available and bullit wants me to upgrade but they are not doing any better on price than online. Just bite the bullitt and buy a sonim xp7 as ihave done, 3 year warranty even on damage and proper tough. I only bought cat as at the time sonim had not released their smart phone.

I hate this phone because it is crap.

Do not let them fool you, this phone is not so tough as they claim , it's processor is very slow, it not user friendly, the battery does not last longer than other smart phones, it is definitely not water or even damp or splash proof.

Do not let them fool you, this phone is not so tough as they claim , it's processor is very slow, it not user friendly, the battery does not last longer than other smart phones, it is definitely not water or even damp or splash proof. I got the new B15 Q in February 2015. I am a farmer and use my phone a lot outdoors as what the B 15 Q is intended for. The first time I got caught in a rain storm it was inside my rain suit and only got a bit of dampness-stuffed! Buttons doesn't respond, switches on and off, phones anyone randomly. Fell once off my bed, completely stuffed, doesn't even come on anymore. Absolutely a crap, waste of money. Don't buy it. Less

Screen Broken, now a useless paperweight.

I broke mine too, found a place in europe that will fix it, but it's warranted for a year against broken glass, but you have to ship it to england, mines on its way home now. I also had trouble updating its firmware you?
