As usual with Clove Technology, my order was dealt with promptly.my new CAT S62 pro.
An easy change from my usual daily driver. Easy to set up and use, battery life better than the suggested time. A little heavy, however this is a great phone plenty of storage and using two sims. The additional weight is offset by only having to carry one phone around against my usual two phones.
This is my third CAT phone and have not experienced any downsides to the brand so far. My use is in dirty and rough environments also in the office too. This works well for my only daily driver.
First off, this is a solid piece of kit and feels the proper job. I am currently getting nearly two days from a single charge even though I am running quite a few programs that are always on.
I do like the battery management such as the way that you can set it to not fully charge until a certain time if you plug it in overnight.
It IS different to the Samsung galaxy I had before and I was suprised at how many elements of the Adroid operating system were actually Samsung's work.
There are a few things that I am finding annoying though:
1). The inability to fully modify the home screen, like the Google search bar at the bottom and the full date at the top. If you try and amend the preferences, these two widgets are not removable.
2). The adaptive brightness program of the screen lighting does not learn as advertised and I find it always too dark, so have turned it off - Sad.
3). And most annoyingly. On the Clove website for this product, it states that the phone is updatable from Android 10 (an older version) to 11 (the current). It does not and unfortunatley my old phone was on 11 and the transfer process was impared, which caused a number of issues.
It is still too early to fully assess this phone and it's long term performance, but I have hi hopes for a long term relationship with this phone. What would be nice to know is if it is fully repairable and how many elements can be upgraded. We are all become more aware of the disposible nature of phones and manufactures need to do more make them last more than two or three years.
CAT, what are you doing about it?
Overall pleased but it does appear to chew through a battery noticeably faster than the S42.
easy to use and set up.
works well on motorway construction in all weathers
It is a good product.
It would have been nice if the LCD was more sturdy.
