Cat S60 Our Opinion

The phone is amazing on its own but if you’re a normal person you don’t ever need this type of smartphone. Even though, if you’re in a Military or an Aircraft pilot or do some good stuffs what the phone is made for, then it would be one of the best choice for you. Well, the price is bit higher but still the features will cover up all that.

The Cat S60 can see things which are not capable by human eyes (visualising the heat), even human eyes is one of the best camera ever. So, considering this smartphone is not bad anyway.
