The best rugged phone around

Close to indestructable ; Massive step forward on the S60 ; Thermal imaging sensor is great ; Air monitor is great for painters and DIY fanatics

Underpowered ; Very expensive

The CAT S61 is the ultimate, money is no object, rugged phone. But it still isn’t perfect.

Cat S61 hands-on review


Not everyone will exploit the Cat S61's considerable talents, but those that do will likely find it invaluable.

Water resistance, tough body ; Thermal camera has been improved ; Air quality sensor is clever ; Surprisingly normal-looking design

Cat S61 review


Could this be the best rugged smartphone on the market?

VOC plus better IR camera ; Balanced hardware ; Upgrade path to Android P ; Only phone with IP69 rating ; Support for dual SIM

A tad pricey

This is the best rugged smartphone on the market. Pricey, but well worth it, with a trio of features you won’t find on other smartphones, plus solid aftersales credentials.

CAT S61 Smartphone Review


Multi-functional. The robust CAT S61 puts all those who say that there are no innovations in the smartphone market to shame. However, with the built-in thermal-imaging camera, a laser distance measure, and the automatic measure of the indoor air...

comprehensive and practical special functions ; robust, well-protected case ; fairly accurate GPS ; great battery life ; very bright display ; good performance ; decent cameras

only worth its price if you use the special functions ; hefty case ; display with low color accuracy

The CAT S61 is of course a specialist. With its hefty exterior and the very specific additional functionalities, it is not really a smartphone for everyone. But anyone who often uses a thermal-imaging camera might enjoy the built-in solution. The...

For the S61, Cat managed to cram in even more features, proving itself not only rugged but also handy.

Test du Caterpillar Cat S61 : le smartphone tout-terrain qui a plus d'un tour dans son sac


Avec sa caméra thermique, son télémètre laser et son capteur de qualité d'air, le Cat S61 ne ressemble à aucun autre smartphone. Le dernier appareil de Caterpillar vaut-il le détour ?

Une des meilleures autonomies du marché ; Un smartphone très solide ; Des capteurs de mesure intéressants assez précis

Beaucoup trop encombrant ; Fonctions de mesure non ergonomiques ; Prix élevé

Ce n’est pas pour ses outils de mesure que nous vous recommandons le Cat S61. Si ceux-ci sont intéressants et relativement précis, Caterpillar livre ici plus des gadgets sophistiqués que de véritables instruments de chantier. Bien sûr, ils peuvent...

alleen het geld waard als je de speciale functies gebruikt ; zwaar ; lage kleurnauwkeurigheid van het beeldscherm

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier.Iedereen die wordt aangetrokken door laserafstandsmeting, luchtkwaliteitsmeting en een warmtebeeldcamera, krijgt met de CAT S61 een veelzijdig stuk gereedschap in handen.
