    • CAT S42 Smartphone – Overview

      Cat phones have a long history of producing rugged phones. The CAT S42 continues this legacy with a phone which has all the benefits of modern technology, including Android 10. With a design that includes IP68 water/dust resistance and compliance with MIL-SPEC 810H. So, it is perfect for taking with you onto work sites, or when you are in the outdoors having fun.

      It also benefits from a Mediatek Heli A20 MT processor, 13MP rear camera with PDAF and 32GB of internal storage. With a 4,200 mAh battery that supports fast charging ensuring you have usage between charges.

      Display

      The Super Bright 5.5” HD+ IPS display has a 720 x 1440 resolution with 18:9 aspect ratio. Giving you a screen, which offers plenty of space to work. But, without making the phone too large to put in your pocket. As indicated, it is unusually bright for viewing in any environment including direct sunlight.

      It also benefits from having a wet finger/glove mode. This allows you to keep using your phone while keeping your hands protected.

      Camera

      The main 13 MP f/2.0 camera supports PDAF for quick capture of your images. Without any loss of detail in your photos, which have vivid and vibrant colours.

      A 5MP front-facing camera with a wide-angle lens is perfect for taking selfies.

      Rugged

      With its rugged design featuring IP69 water/dust resistance and compliance with MIL-STD 810H. The CAT S42 can be with you in challenging environments like building sites, or when you are enjoying the outdoors. This due to it being able to withstand drops of up to 1.8m (6ft) onto steel and being submersed in water of up to 1.5m for 35minutes.

      A hard-wearing and non-slip rubberized TPU back is easy to hold and doesn’t allow the phone to slide when you put it down on most surfaces.
      There is never any need to worry about the safety of this phone. While you are working or having fun.

      Performance

      With its Mediatek Helio A20 MT Quad-core processor 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage you have the performance and storage capacity for using all your favourite apps. The high capacity 4,200 mAh battery with fast charging, allows quick recharge needed and extend usage.

    Great phone

    I had been looking for a new mobile for some time but did not want to pay for an expensive one from iPhone or Samsung as I do a lot of outdoor activity and was concerned about damage and also did not want all the bells and whistles. Then I came across the Cat S42 basically bomb proof and does all the things I need, only had it a couple weeks, so far so good. Lots of help from Clove personnel.
