Reviews for the CAT S48c

60% CAT S48c Review: A Simply Indestructible Phone
Source: Tom's Guide English
If you can't afford to worry about your smartphone quitting before you do, the CAT S48c is well worth a look. This combination of durability and battery life is almost nonexistent among consumer handsets. If one thing is certain, Bullitt spared no expense building the latest CAT phone into the tank it ought to be.

Hands-on with the Cat S48c rugged phone, available now on Verizon
Source: Android Authority English
It’s interesting that the CAT S48c doesn’t include any special features like we’ve seen in previous CAT devices. Most of the company’s phones have included some kind of extra feature to make the phone extra compelling to hardcore users, but, besides the ultra-rugged design and certification, the S48c doesn’t seem to offer much extra. Still, for those looking for a device that won’t break and can take photos underwater, this could be a compelling option.

CAT:
