The CAT S50 - is it tough?
The CAT S50 is one of our favorite tough mobile phones here at Tuffphones.
Why is this? Well the CAT S50 is currently one of the 'smartest' tough phones on the market and is packing in a lot of power inside it's robust frame.
The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core A7 processor with 2GB RAM and is running on Android 4.4 (KitKat). The handset also features a 4.7" display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and comes with wet-finger tracking.
The handset is completely waterproof you can submerge this handset in water at a depth of up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes, plus the CAT S50 is also protected against dust ingress thanks to it's IP67 rating.
Another big bonus for this handset is it's ability to withstand drops and shock. Thanks to it's MIL-STD 810G rating this mobile is capable of taking drops from heights of up to 1.2 meters and surviving, plus vibrations and extreme temperatures won't effect it's performance.
So how tough is it?
The IP67 and MIL-STD 810G ratings make this handset one tough nut to crack.
Unfortunately the following video is in Greek however it isn't too hard to follow along with what is happening as the footage shows the CAT S50 being dropped down stairs onto concrete, thrown around rooms, catching bricks... and still coming back for more!
