Being a smartphone manufacturer is no cakewalk these days as getting the audience to notice your product in a highly saturated market is no easy feat. We’ve seen companies bank on waterproofing and shatter-proof displays to set their products apart. With the market mostly tapped out by big-name brands and the influx of Chinese players, new manufactures have been branching out to other niche audiences in the hopes to widen their reach.
Cat phones recently made its entry into India with the launch of the Cat S60 – a rugged Android smartphone which is the first in the world to have a built-in thermal camera. Rugged smartphones aren’t exactly new as we currently have some toughened counterparts of common models like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Sadly, these phones rarely make it to India, but now, you can get your hands on what’s possibly the most rugged smartphone currently in the Indian market.
Naturally, it commands a hefty premium, as is the case with most niche products. But leaving aside the fancy camera and tank-like durability, does it qualify as a good, modern smartphone? We find out.
The S60 doesn’t look anything like the smartphones you’re used to seeing. The switches on the front, chunky flaps on the side, and a weird bump on the top easily grabbed eyeballs whenever we were using it. The inevitable question always was, “what is it?”. The S60 is fat and chunky on purpose, as the outer body uses a strengthened die-cast frame and the oversized buttons and flaps are intended to make it easy to use with gloves. Surprisingly, it doesn’t feel too heavy even though it weighs around 223 grams.
