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.

Does all as it should and more

 

Bought for my partner, he's a construction worker and has big fingers so most normal phones tend to cause him problems when typing. The on screen keyboard is better than some I've seen. He particularly loves the fact that it can withstand his job...
