Great to have a tough smartphone

 

Having three mainstream phones fail to stand up to my lifestyle, the time has come to try a phone designed for a tough environment. So far the CAT S30 has all the Android features in a package built to take the knocks and drops of life's adventures....

CAT S30 Dual Sim

 

Strong casing and easy to handle yet still compact. Easy to navigate and good sound quality, call performance and internet access. Great value. Good weatherproof charging points etc.

Nothing big: Volume controls easy to disturb and not lockable. No charging status light. Not sure how to use yellow button yet.
