CAT B15 Description:

Top Customer Review:
I purchased their phone when if first hit the market in 2013 and it has been going great. Only at the beginning of this year did it have it's first hick up, just a glitch from an app update. I did a factory reset and it fixed the problem instantaneously. It has lasted another 7 months but the battery is starting to go and no longer recharging correctly, which after 3 years is what one would expect. This phone has been thrown run over left in water for 3 hours and still has been working. As a person who works in out door industry I have been super happy with the phone before this I was replacing phones every 1-3 months. I will definitely be getting the new model at the end of this year!

caterpillar: the name invokes images of bugs, but also gigantic yellow construction vehicles, belching smoke and hurling mounds of earth. And apparently, smartphones: the $349 (£249.99) Cat B15Q is the company's latest effort, a rugged device that wants to prove that surviving the elements needn't involve garish cases or massive rubber bumpers.

The CAT® B15 thrives on a challenge. IT'S MADE OF TOUGH STUFF - HARD KNOCKS, SCRATCHES, WATER AND DUST DON'T BOTHER IT. It's also very smart. It runs on Android 4.0 (Jelly Bean) and is loaded with features like Wi-Fi, an FM radio, Media player and file storage can be expanded using MicroSD cards. The 5MP camera captures the action with one-press continuous shooting; or use video to get the full story with sound and motion. The CAT B15 is IP67 certified.

That means it's dustproof and waterproof. And, wet finger tracking means it keeps working with wet hands, when you're caught in the rain or you fist it out of a puddle. Aluminum body in a toughened, rubberized casing with minimal openings. Scratch-proof Corning Gorilla® glass screen. Drop it 1.8 meters head-first onto concrete and it bounces back - even the screen. I've dropped it, I've drowned it and I've called a few friends: it's still kicking, and still looking good.

Really dissapointed! Got my first cat b15q, which had an out of box failure. Second phone...did a factory reset after phone battery apparently got a virus and now it shows no camera icon. You can't hear the music properly when playing music. Took out my sim card to put another and then the dual sim card got stuck and the gold plates of the simcard reader got bent. This is just a few of the problems I had so far, because the list is extremely long. When I contacted the manufacturers, they told me to rather get a new phone because they can't help me. Seriously?!
ADVANTAGES:
Look and feel in-hand
DISADVANTAGES:
WORST customer service I have ever seen!!!

I've had the phone for two years. The one I currently have is actually the second one, because I dropped the first one about a foot from the ground and the power button got stuck with no way to be fixed, so instead, I got a replacement. The replacement, too, has problems with the power button, it's really hard to press down. The battery life is awful, even with the brightness on minimum and WiFi off, my phone dies within less than 10 hours. For the past year or so, thephone
ADVANTAGES:
Phone build quality
DISADVANTAGES:
Does not stand up to the build claims

I had the B15Q for three months, dropped it from a height of about 800 mm and the screen shattered. This supposed indestructible phone that has Corning Gorilla glass and advertised with the words "ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH" can be dropped from 1.8 m and nothing will happen to it. Check out the website. Further, all communication from the CAT group is sorry about you being unhappy. Guessing the pride that they have in the phone is not as much as the pride they have in the false advertising.
ADVANTAGES:
The battery is a winner , 18 hours with a moderate 3g/Wifi use
DISADVANTAGES:
No OS update
