Reviews for the CAT S52

77.2% CAT S52 smartphone review – A fancy outdoor device | Notebookcheck
The CAT S52 has slimmed down considerably so that it no longer passes for a chubby outdoor phone but more for a fancy smartphone with special skills. However, only a small battery fits into the well-protected case. In the review, we look at how this affects the suitability for everyday use.

With an eye beyond just the building site, the Cat S52 is a good-looking device that’s equally aimed at butter-fingered mainstream users as much as those who work in extreme conditions. It’s easily the most aesthetically pleasing work phone out there, and there are no major corners cut when it comes to durability. However, its middling performance and dated screen will make it a hard sell for regular users at this price point.

The Cat S52 Smartphone Review
Source: Tech Girl English
The sceptic in me wondered if it was really as good as they said it was, and so, I decided to have a little bit of fun. This is a review of the CAT S52 Smartphone, but it is, hopefully, like no review you’ve seen before. The idea was to have fun while also giving the phone a really hard time.

Device review: Cat S52
Source: What Hi-Fi English
The S52 largely does what it sets out to do. As a mid-range device, you’d definitely find it lacking were it not for its rugged specs, which manage to successfully merge mainstream design with beefy defence-against-the-element capabilities. It especially proved its worth when it survived 10 minutes in a jug without being made fully watertight, and came away with some temporary camera damage.
