Cat® phones are built to withstand the toughest conditions. Get one, and you’ll never worry about damaging your phone again. 

Many so-called “rugged” devices simply appear rugged. But appearances can be deceiving. Actual rugged phones undergo a series of design and construction tests in order to verify their claims.

The US Military Standard (MIL STD) 810 was introduced to provide a range of tests that simulate how materials withstand environmental stress during their operational lifetime. There are eight MIL STD 810 tests used to determine whether a mobile phone is truly rugged. One of these is the drop test. Most brands validate their devices in a range of 0,8m to 1m. Very few will test to 1,2m.

Cat® phones are dropped 30 times on multiple surfaces from an impressive 1,8m. In fact, Cat® phones proudly pass nine MIL STD 810 tests, along with an exhaustive schedule of 52 other reliability tests including bending, tumbling, temperature, water and dust ingress.

Because of this, Cat® is the market leader in rugged mobile phones. Every Cat® phone that leaves the factory comes with the most comprehensive two-year warranty of any smartphone in South Africa, which covers all defects and even accidental damage.

The flagship S61 has enhanced resolution of thermal images and can “read” temperatures of up to 400°C, providing enough detail to help locate and diagnose damp, drafts, leakage, electrical shorts or plumbing blockage. It boasts an indoor air-quality monitor to alert you to high levels of indoor air pollutants, and it measures humidity levels. It’s also the world’s first smartphone with an integrated laser-assisted distance measure. 

Add to this its world-leading rugged credentials: drop-proof from 1,8m onto concrete; waterproof up to 3m for 60 minutes, including in salt water; and resilient to all types of dust.
