CAT S61 Review


Having the ability to carry around a phone while traveling is very important, and the Cat S61 is perfect for this. With a large screen, excellent camera, and impressive battery life, this cell phone is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family.


Unlike previous rugged smartphones, Caterpillar has reimagined the S61 as a smart, feature-rich smartphone that is built for the hard-core tinkerer. This Android 8.1 device is a powerful tool for contractors, engineers, and handymen.

The phone’s best feature remains its integrated FLIR thermal imaging camera. Thermal imaging cameras are great for a variety of situations, from locating leaks in buildings to detecting warm footprints. They can also be used to find pests or poor blood circulation.

The thermal imaging sensor improves on the one found in the S60. It has a range of -20 to 400 degrees. The new sensor also offers a 30-meter maximum distance. It also allows users to set a custom temperature range. It also offers a high-temperature mode that is less accurate at lower temperatures.

The S61 also has an air-monitoring sensor. This is useful for plumbers, painters, and anyone working with chemicals. The sensor is able to monitor the air every four seconds and will alert users when the unhealthy level has reached a certain point.

Battery life

CAT S61 is a specialist smartphone that is aimed at professionals. It is designed to handle harsh environments. It has a thermal imaging sensor and laser distance measurement. It also features air quality sensors and vehicle diagnostics. The CAT S61 is also water resistant.

The Cat S61 has a 4,500 mAh battery, which means it can last for up to two days between charges. However, it can lose 20 to 30 percent of its power per hour. It is also Quick Charge 4.0 compatible. This means that you can get up to 15-20 percent of its battery back after only a half-hour of charging. The battery can last up to three days when used in light conditions.

The camera on the Cat S61 can also drain the battery. While it works well, it is not as fast as a dedicated camera. This could be an issue for people who use thermal imaging.

Another major drain on the battery is the WiFi and Bluetooth. This is because these two devices are used by a variety of applications.

Water resistance

CAT phones are designed to be used in harsh environments. They include features like air quality sensors, measuring tools, and apps. Some even have a handy rangefinder.

The CAT S61 features a water-resistant design. The external casing is constructed of hard polycarbonate plastic and includes rubberized components to help with bumps and drops. The screen itself is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. This material offers a 5.2-inch diagonal and a 700 cd/m2 brightness level.

Cat S61 also comes with a thermal imaging camera. This camera detects heat loss around doors and windows. This feature is helpful for a number of professions. You can even use the thermal camera to identify overheating appliances.

The display of the Cat S61 has a 5.2-inch diagonal. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The screen’s high-resolution displays are able to be operated even with wet fingers. The display has a full HD resolution. The screen is also resistant to humidity and salt mist.


CAT S61 is an expensive smartphone that has unique hardware and specialist software. This ruggedized phone is designed to operate in all kinds of harsh conditions, including rain, snow, and dust.

The S61 has a thermal camera, laser distance measure, and air quality sensor. The thermal camera is great for measuring heat loss around windows and doors. It can also be used to detect overheating appliances. It is also capable of identifying moisture in the air.

The laser measuring tool uses a rear camera and laser to calculate distances. It can measure distances up to eight meters. This is not as accurate as a dedicated device, but it works well.

The thermal camera is very useful for identifying moisture, heat loss around windows and doors, and overheating appliances. It can be life-saving for people working in extremely hard environments. A standalone thermal imaging tool would cost several hundred dollars.

The S61’s air quality sensor can measure the concentration of ppb, or Volatile Organic Compounds, which are commonly associated with paint and glue. A concentration of 610 ppb is considered unhealthy. The sensor measures air quality every four seconds and alerts the user when unhealthy levels are reached.
