For a long time, when contemplating or using a rugged phone, we all had to be content with not having the latest specification. The alternative was to buy a consumer phone and then put it in a bulky case. CAT changed this with the release of the B15, and they have continued to evolve their range of products with the CAT S40.
This smartphone has it all with a 4.7” qHD screen and high quality audio, along with 4G/LTE connectivity, and the latest version of Android 5.0 Lollipop. This means you have the kind of specification which is normally associated with consumer phones, but within a rugged design.
The 1.1GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, along with the 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, is perfect for running all but the most demanding apps and games. The large amount of storage will give you plenty of space to store all of the apps you download, and also any photos or other media you wish to store. When combined with the other stand-out features including 4G/LTE connectivity and the 4.7” qHD display you have a very capable smart phone.
Like the rest of the CAT range the S40 is able to withstand the rigours of daily life, due to its rugged design. It has been designed to adhere to Military standard 810G and is able to withstand drops of, up to, 1.8 metres onto concrete. It is also completely dust and waterproof, as it complies with the ingress protection IP68. As such not only can you drop this phone without worry, it is also able to deal with environments you wouldn’t take other similar devices.
When you are working out in the open you need a phone which will get you through an entire day’s usage. CAT has chosen to put a large 3000 mAh battery in the S40. This means that not only should you be able to get through an entire day, but it should be possible to have 2 days away from your charger before you need to re-charge.Reason to buy the CAT S40
