Hands on: Cat B15 review

 

The brand that made your boots has a new Android phone

Durable ; MicroSD support ; Surprisingly good looking ; Waterproof

Weak processor ; Low-end camera ; Just 3G

CAT B15 review

 

The CAT B15 is the first Android smartphone from the industrial machinery company and it's ready to take whatever you can throw at it

Sturdy, solid design ; Uncluttered Jelly Bean ; Dual-SIM functionality

Poor screen resolution ; Meagre storage space ; Substandard camera

The CAT B15 is a niche handset and, as such, is very easy to pin down for a verdict. It's unquestionably one of the best rugged handsets we've looked at and will stand up to the rigours of outdoor usage whatever the weather. The inclusion of Jelly Bean...

The Cat B15 tough Android smartphone makes you feel just a little bit more macho.

Looks good for a ruggedized phone ; Dust, water and drop proof ; Dual SIM support

Fairly expensive ; Middling spec ; Battery sometimes pops out when it's dropped

The display's default brightness level was a little bit dim for our liking and although it has an automatic brightness setting it seemed a tad slower than most handsets to respond to changing lighting conditions. Controlled manually, however, and the...

Water, dust and shock proof ; Runs Android Jelly Bean ; Dual SIM card slots ; Expandable storage

Very poor screen ; Lacklustre performance ; Unimpressive camera ; Bigger and fatter than most 4-inch phones

The CAT B15 doesn't have the sort of specs and performance that'll tempt hardcore smart phones to splash their cash. Its water- and shock-proof design, however, will help it appeal to builders and other burly workers who want to enjoy swiping at apps,...

Rugged handset impresses with durability, but it's an unlikely smartphone

Just as durable as Caterpillar claims, quirky design, good battery life, expandable storage, runs Android

Laggy at times, dull screen, only 4GB of internal storage, design won't appeal to all

For those willing to throw £300 at a phone that will easily withstand dirt and scratches, the Cat B15 is a great choice, but for those after a phone that is both a rugged device and an Android smartphone, we'd probably advise taking a look at the...

Cat B15 Review

 

It's a sad fact that, if you choose to go for a traditional "tough" or "rugged" phone, people have often pointed and laughed at you. Oh, come on, don't pretend. It's true. Deep down you also know that you've cut [...
