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.
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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Helio P35 MT6765: ARM based octa core SoC (8x ARM Cortex-A53) clocked at up to 2.3 GHz. The chip also includes a Cat.7 LTE modem (300 Mbps download).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


5.65":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.  

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.21 kg:

This weight is typical for smartphones.


CAT:

CAT, which can be easier found under CAT Phones in the web, gets seldom reviewed, does hardly have any market shares and achieves average ratings (as of 2016).
