Cat S40 in the Test

The top model S40 outdoor specialist cat can connect much correctly and has also technically more to offer than many competitors. But what about the endurance? Connect has sent sturdy colleagues through the laboratory course.

That the cat S40 is a flagship model, you can see immediately. While most plug outdoor smartphones into a thick plastic tank, the manufacturer of cat brings out the eveningwear, mixes matte plastic with aluminium elements and offers as an unusually elegant for sturdy phones look.

Of course, the cat S40 compared with normal Smartphone is still a big block. Even one of the fiercest competitors, Samsung’s outdoor Professional Galaxy Xcover 3 (Test), is much more compact and lighter with 133 x 70 x 10 mm and 154 grams weight. Forget you can here but not the cat S40 is a much more: it stands over falls from 1.80 meters on hard concrete, while the Xcover is 3 for maximum of 1.20 meters. And while a dive with the Samsung can take less than 30 minutes, the model of cat creates the double time – where the manufacturer guarantees the protection of explicitly aggressive salt water. On a sailing trip, you can take the cat S40 so loosely. Also consistent that it use touchscreen with gloves not only, but also with wet fingers can.

Strong display, weak CPU

The display of the cat S40 4.7 inch 960 x 540 pixels. The image sharpness is not great, but it is still acceptable to browse the Internet and multimedia content to adequately represent. Who buys this Smartphone, focuses but anyway not on the number of pixels, instead he or she will examine just how well can be read off the display even under the open sky. Here the cat S40 with a high candlepower 548 scores (Xcover 3: 423 candela).

Under the display it looks less well, however, because cat chose a savings model for chip supplier Qualcomm. Snapdragon 210 in the cat S40 is a quad-core processor with maximum 1.1 GHz clock frequency, which can access memory only 1 GB and does not support the modern 64-bit architecture. That is too little, the most 200-euro Smartphones have more power under the hood. But on the other hand, the performance of the cat S40 adequate to represent the surface smoothly. The apps start although leisurely, but the system is running correctly and fluently and at the end it is particularly important.

A similar judgment can make is about the 8-megapixel camera of the cat S40: although only snapshots in there, you can snap still pictures in a quality so, going for an outdoor Smartphone in order. Videos can be recorded in full HD, and cat has also thought of a front-facing camera (2 megapixel) for video calls.

Updates unlikely

On the rugged Smartphone, Android runs in the latest version 5.1, which the manufacturer is virtually unchanged from Google. The preloaded apps can be counted on one hand, in addition to an anti virus tool includes among others the keyboard app Swiftkey. New applications come quickly to the device: in addition to Google’s play store you will find a second app store in the main menu, which was tailored to the outdoor area.

Overlooking the software CAT does everything right in principle, only on the issue of updates, it looks bleak. At least the past experience has shown that the company limited software support to the bare essentials. The previous model B15Q is still running Android 4.4.
