Cat S41 rugged smartphone review

 

The Cat S41 is built like a tank, but its price leaves a gap in its armor.

Super durable ; Simple, uncluttered software ; Excellent battery life

Poor camera ; Subpar performance in price tier ; No fingerprint sensor ; No Android 8.0 Oreo

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.

Extremely durable ; Bright display ; Long-lasting battery doubles as an external pack

Terrible camera ; Underwhelming performance ; A little pricey ; No fingerprint sensor

There's no question the latest Cat smartphone can take a beating. But can it beat the competition?

Cat S41 review

 

A rugged smartphone that delivers the goods and then some

Conservative design, unlike some rivals ; Recognizable brand ; Can be used as an emergency charger ; Stock Android

No biometric security ; More expensive than the competition

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...
