Tech review: CAT S50 smartphone  

By Daybreak Staff 12:04 PM December 15, 2014

It’s a high-end, 4G, rugged smartphone fit for people on the go. But is it as tough as all the ads say? Greg Klimek, vice president of wireless sales and marketing at GCI (KTVA’s parent company),  joined Daybreak Monday with a tech toy review on the purpose-built phone made by Caterpiller Inc. — the CAT S50. The phone is water-resistant up to 3 feet for half an hour, and its screen can withstand falls up to 4 feet on surfaces like concrete and ice, Klimek said. It’s not only tough - it’s also pretty smart, running one of the latest Android operating systems. “So, it’s almost like it’s built for Alaskans in the fact that you get all the performance of a high-end smartphone, but you can use it outside,” Klimek said. “So whether you’re going outside to hike or to ski or you’re working outside, this will put up against the elements.

                  THE CLAIN THE Q5 AND X6 HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED, ONCE AGAIN ARE CRAP, CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER YOURSELF AND ASK DIRECTLY. I HAVE FORWARDED THIS FALSE INFO TO THE MANUFACTURER - A LAST DESPERATE ATTEMPT OF A SA. SELLER - TO SELL UNSALEABLE STOCK!

                  After testing the Rugtel Tank X10 - I can honestly say it does not compare TO THE RUNBO X6. I say this in writing.  The Runbo's Q5 and X6 'the flagships' are great all round. Runbo are big and ugly but they are the very best genuine rugged phone! The Q5S is big and bulky but has specs from 2 years ago. *Lower than the old X5

                  Purchase the Q5S at your own risk the seller cannot sell them obviously as it was Runbo's blunder. A great plan, an affordable Runbo but at the sale price of around R5000.00 - The X6 and Q5 selling  at that price! The seller has been trying to sell them for 6 months. Now he is resorting to harassing me and claiming the X6 etc. is discontinued. He did the same a few months ago. Do not fall for it go to: www.ruggedarena.com - Purchase the flagship direct from the manufacturer it will cost you less than the low spec. Q5S in SA. with a decent warranty, and will be delivered in around a week! The local seller does not include any local warranty a complete ripoff.  Spencer 0723170708

                  GREAT LITTLE RUGGED PHONE FOR AROUND 200.00USD 

                  GENUINE SPECS: RUGTEL 

                  If you notice most of the specs. are not 100% correct. This is the case for most mobile devices. 

                  I still need to check the ruggedness ie. Waterproof etc. claimed IP68 etc. So far except for the volume button not working it seems like a decent ;rugged phone" lets wait for the real tests to begin. Battery not quite in the Runbo range, but pretty damn good.

                  Annotations
                  Display: Evaluated display size is not actual size, it represents value that android "knows" about your size. If this value significantly differs from actual size, display may have worse usability.
                  RAM: Volume of memory that can be accessed by operating system. Usually this value is less than claimed by manufacturer, as some memory may be used by graphical processor and other hardware.
                  Flash: This field shows one or more flash memory blocks. First block is built in memory, used for operating system and user data. Actual size represents maximum size of user data, than can be stored on that drive.
                  Phone: "Net" key shows only current mobile network type.
                  WiFi: Detailed information can be decoded by www.chinaarena.com.com. server (Menu -> Decode..).
                  USB Host: A.K.A. Usb OTG(on-the-go). If "Yes", you can attach external usb accessories, at least usb flash drives. For micro USB connector, USB OTG cable is needed.
                  Bluetooth: Bluetooth version can be decoded from chipset info by www.chinaarena.com.com. server.
                  GPS: For correct detection module should be turned on.
                  Sensors: Sensor information includes: sensor name, manufacturer. Technical specs. Range: minimum and maximum value, sensor can output. Resolution: minimum step between two values (and percent of step within range). Smaller resolution means better precision, but real sensor accuracy depends on many hardware implementation nuances. Power: current, consumed when sensor is active.
                  External USB Ethernet: If you have this record, your system has drivers for external adapters, but this is not built in ethernet.

                  So far it seems like a decent Chinese phone. Looks good. We will still see if it performs in "Rugged conditions" 

                  I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. LET ME WAIT UNTIL FURTHER TESTING I MAY HAVE TO EAT MY WORDS. CURRENTLY I VALUE AT AROUND 172.52€ / ZAR 2000.00 - ZAR 2500.00  

                  THANKS Spencer  RUGGEDARENA.COM 

                  1. THE TANK X10 IS NOT LTE

                  I WILL GET TO THE FULL SPECS. BUT FOR KNOW THE ''LTE'' IS NOT TRUE. I WILL EXPLAIN LATER. 

                  I received the unit today. I will in the next few days give you the correct specs! and reviews.

                  The total cost just under R2499.00 (including shipping, VAT and duties). Would have cost a lot less...ask me why?

                  Before you run of and order the X10 there are 2 other low cost rugged phones LTE IP68 but lets see what we get! In Europe and the SA and the USA these exact same devices are selling for around 400-+  Without a local warranty. RuggedArena.com - Purchase the same device for less than a third of the price!

                  Delivery from the manufacturer to my door JHB South Africa took under one week! International shipment should take less time.

                  I HAVE PURCHASED DIRECT FROM RUGTEL. I RECEIVED THE ITEM ORDERED WITHIN THE TIME FRAME PROMISED BY THE MANUFACTURER. I WOULD RECOMEND DEALING WITH THIS MANUFACTURER - GREAT LITTLE RUGGED PHONE FOR AROUND 200.00USD 

                  Note:

                  I will be doing the same with 4 other rugged phones on order. I only deal with the manufacturers. I will only recommend you do the same subject to:

                  1. The product arrives as promised etc. (Genuine product, honest manufacturer) I have been in this business too long to take chances.

                  2. The product passes my quality tests and standards.
