Should the S50 be your new Toughphone?
When you hear the word CAT, you first thought is probably a four legged fluffy friend, but the next thing you probably think of is big yellow diggers, construction equipment and all things related to the building trade.
Whilst I do not blame you for thinking about the household pet, we are actually referring to the latter. The CAT brand is at home in construction but over the last couple of years CAT have branched out into the mobile space, producing phones that fit the needs of your builder, plumber or groundworker amongst others. They are essentially designed to be tough and reliable.
These devices might fit the needs of many, but put one next to an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy and there is an obvious difference in looks.
The S50 has been designed from the ground up to be more visually appealing and more capable, yet retain the rugged nature that CAT equipment and phones have become synonymous for.
On first glance, the S50 looks like a B15Q that has been run over by a road roller, perhaps a little harsh, but only said because it is significantly thinner and wider.
Let’s take a look in a bit more depth at the S50 and see what it has to offer. Check out our video review below or continue reading for the full written review.
