Cat S40 review: Fort Knox guarding fool’s gold

 

The Cat S40 is one of the most durable phones we have ever tested. But do the insides justify that protection?

This phone is an absolute tank that can stand up to any torture you care to put it through. The rubberized/metal outer shell laughs in the face of danger. That is all great. But the performance hit from the insides make this phone hard to recommend....

Review: CAT S40

 

CAT is offering the rugged S40 to U.S. buyers directly online. This Android smartphone is designed to take a beating and still get you to your meeting on time. This phone is sold unlocked and works with networks such as those run by AT&T and T-Mobile....

The CAT S40 fulfills its mission: it's a rugged smartphone that handles bumps, bruises, and a bath, all while delivering a core Android smartphone experience.
