Reviews for the CAT S40

82% CAT S40 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Workhorse for rough jobs. The CAT S40 is a ruggedized smartphone that combines a very bright IPS screen and long battery life in a robust exterior. However, the hardware could have been more powerful. It is powered by a Qualcomm entry-level quad-band SoC and 16 GB of storage. Nevertheless, the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system and penta-band LTE are on board.
Robustes Smartphone für Outdoor-Fans und Handwerker
