Reviews for the CAT S62 Pro

78.2% The CAT S62 Pro Rugged Smartphone Review: Robustness burdened by big compromises | Notebookcheck
The S62 Pro from CAT is intended for professional use. The flagship smartphone from the S6x series offers the highest IP rating and an integrated thermal camera, which features the most advanced sensor yet. As of writing this review, no other smartphone offers such a sensor. Read our extensive review before you decide whether or not you should buy the CAT S62 Pro.
Cat S62 Pro review: a super rugged phone with built-in thermal imaging
Source: T3 English
Very few phones offer the sort of rugged protection for your device that the Cat S62 Pro has, and throw in a thermal imaging camera as well. If you think you'll make use of those two strengths of the phone, then the relative weaknesses aren't going to bother you.

90% Cat S62 Pro Rugged Smartphone review
Source: Techradar English
This device offers an excellent user experience and has features that could be especially useful in some sectors. The only caveats are a relatively low-resolution camera for a flagship design and the curious lack of wireless charging.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 512: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 510?). Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


SD 660: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2.2 GHz cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz cores) and a rather slow Adreno 512 GPU. Manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


5.7":

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.


0.248 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).


79.04%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
