Cat S31 £295: Shipping Next Week
Over the past few years, Cat have positioned themselves at the top of the Rugged category. Cat’s smartphones changed expectations and popularised what was a niche product segment. With decent specifications and affordable prices – plus a warranty that backs the rugged advertising – the Cat S31 is the latest in a series of excellent recommendations.
First stock due and shipping from next week.
Rugged phones use to be one of two things. Overpriced or underpowered. Cat changed that paradigm. Put any recent Cat phone next to a similarly priced rugged competitor and it will likely beat tout the specifications.
This important in a modern space where phones are more than just tools. Cat have treated their handsets as smartphones first, making them capable of handling a modern smart ecosystem. The tough design augments this, making Cat devices the best rugged consumer option today.
With the Cat S31 you get a solid all-round device. The specifications place this solidly in the mid-tier, with a capable quad-core processor and 4.7″ HD screen. Add in a large 4,000 mAh battery and you have a long-lasting phone that can run all the latest mobile apps.
An IP68 rating provides dust and water resistance, plus the chunky, textured rubber design with physical Android keys offers excellent tactile response and makes the phone a pleasure to hold.
