Обзор защищенного смартфона CAT B15Q

 

Дорогой пылевлагозащищенный, а также ударопрочный смартфон от компании Caterpillar, оснащенный бюджетным «железом»

Защищенный смартфон CAT B15Q не произвел на меня впечатления. Тому есть несколько причин. Первая и самая главная: из-за задней панельки, которая ненадежно фиксируется, возможны проблемы с защитой от воды. Еще раз повторю, что крышка имеет пластиковый...

CAT B15Q

 

Taking a cue from its hardwearing machinery, CAT's B15Q is an Android-powered companion for anyone wanting a smartphone capable of handling a little rough and tumble.

Surprisingly light feel; Solid construction; Highly shock and drop proof

Slightly overpriced for mid-range smartphone; Back cover very difficult to access

When we first heard of the B15Q's hardwearing capabilities and saw its chunky looking design, we expected a device that only had one party trick. To the contrary, during our time with the device, it surprised us with its relatively lightweight...

Cat B15Q (Unlocked)

 

The ultra-rugged Cat B15Q is an affordable, unlocked Android smartphone, but weak mobile data support and paltry internal storage hold it back.

Waterproof and Rugged. Runs stock Android 4.4

No LTE and missing HSPA+ bands for AT&T and T-Mobile. No Recent Apps multitasking. Limited storage

Aside from adventure junkies and klutzes, ultra-rugged phones are primarily targeted at workers in hazardous fields like construction. So it seems natural that Cat, one of the most recognizable brands in building equipment, would try its hand at...

CAT B15Q review: Beats the elements, fumbles the basics

 

Caterpillar: the name invokes images of bugs, but also gigantic yellow construction vehicles, belching smoke and hurling mounds of earth. And apparently, smartphones: the $349 (£249.99) Cat B15Q is the company's latest effort, a rugged device that...

The Cat B15Q offers great voice quality, and proves you don't need to be ugly to be rugged.

The phone is limited to 3G connectivity, and the display is hard to see off-axis, or outdoors.

The Cat B15Q is a thoroughly rugged phone, but archaic connectivity options and a disappointing display keep it from shining outdoors.

CAT B15Q ( black)

 

I've dropped it, I've drowned it and I've called a few friends: it's still kicking, and still looking good. But a well-rounded smartphone experience needs to deliver in many respects, and the B15Q, while a strong contender, comes with quite a few caveats.
