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.

CAT S41 Smartphone Review


The CAT is safe. CAT Phones also goes with the times and updates its robust outdoor models according to the current hardware requirements. We clarify in our review what buyers can expect from the IP-68 certified S41 that has also been tested according...

robust case with IP68 and MIL SPEC 810G ; dualSIM and microSD can be used simultaneously ; good system performance ; solid camera quality

GPS slightly inaccurate

In our test, the CAT S41 shows itself as a robust outdoor smartphone with a relatively good system performance. The Android system runs smoothly and the performance is sufficient for apps that demand more than WhatsApp and the Internet browser. In...

CAT S41 review: A rugged smartphone for users working in extreme conditions


Smartphones are an essential part of daily life for many but some smartphones aren't up to extreme conditions. But the CAT S41 is and could be the perfect smartphone for users in extreme conditions.

The CAT S41 isn’t for everyone and isn’t a phone for the average consumer. It’s not pretty, it’s not expensive, it doesn’t run the latest software, and it’s not a status symbol. What it has going for it is it’s a functional and rugged tool that is...

CAT S41 review: Built to survive tough environments with a battery that last for days


A few years ago I spent some time with the Cat S40 rugged smartphone . While at CES in January, I had a chance to see the latest model, Cat S41 , and spent the last couple of weeks testing it out with my T-Mobile SIM.

Stellar long battery life ; High level of dust, water, and shock resistance ; Snappy performance for typical every day tasks ; Ability to charge other devices with its massive battery

No biometric security ; MicroUSB for charging

CAT S41 review: Truly a niche device


The CAT S41 is a good option for those who value ruggedness over all else, though it might fall short in too many areas for the average user.

Extremely rugged ; Long-lasting battery ; Programable PTT button ; Wide array of ports ; IP68 dust and water resistance

Sub-par performance ; Micro-USB ; Terrible cameras

Cat S41 Review: The Phone Endures, the Camera Does Not


Few smartphones are built to suffer the kinds of abuse the S41 can handle and still hit a reasonable price point. CAT has done a commendable job of bringing that durability to the midrange market without making too many sacrifices. This is a decently...

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...

CAT S41 rugged smartphone


It's clear that the CAT took all the elements of the S31 and turned it up a notch.

Great build, big battery can be used to recharge other phones

Camera could have been better
