Being a smartphone manufacturer is no cakewalk these days as getting the audience to notice your product in a highly saturated market is no easy feat. We’ve seen companies bank on waterproofing and shatter-proof displays to set their products apart. With the market mostly tapped out by big-name brands and the influx of Chinese players, new manufactures have been branching out to other niche audiences in the hopes to widen their reach.

Cat S60 Summary

The Cat S60 is an extremely rugged phone designed for adventurous consumers or outdoor technicians who would typically find themselves in unforgiving environments. It’s also the first smartphone in the world to have an integrated thermal camera, which is from FLIR. As a smartphone, it has a 4.7-inch display which has good brightness and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The interface is smooth and most apps work well but the mainstream SoC feels a bit limiting. The S60 is IP68 certified, military grade tough and can survive five meters underwater for up to an hour. The primary 13-megapixel and front 5-megapixel cameras are strictly average in terms of performance. Battery life is good but we expected better out of the 3800mAh battery.

    The S60 is a very different device. It is dust-proof and drop-proof and works under water till up to a depth of 5 meters. It also works with gloves and when the screen is wet. Another unique feature with the smartphone is its thermal camera which can detect heat sources up to 30 meters away. .Phone just makes your each and everyday more than usual or u can call it HEROIC!!!

    Aj (Mar 27, 2017) on Amazon
    Last month I purchased this beauty.The real feel of Rugged.Perfect configurations with great battery life.This is a dual sim with 4G(also working in India) and a different slot for micro SD card.Everything is perfect in this phone.If someone want to buy rugged smartphone then CAT S60 is the best option.Most Important-Don't worry about screen protection because you will findtempered glass in the box.
