Review: CAT S40
The CAT S40 fulfills its mission: it's a rugged smartphone that handles bumps, bruises, and a bath, all while delivering a core Android smartphone experience.
I like the overall design of the phone, which is tough as nails. Many people will appreciate the waterproof form factor and the S40's ability to serve as a hockey puck. The screen is decent and signal performance is good on AT&T's network, but call quality could have been better. Battery life is excellent.
The base Android platform functioned perfectly well, though CAT did little to dress up the operating system or add new and compelling features. I was disappointed by the camera performance, but not overly surprised.

Workers that spend the majority of their time outdoors or in vehicles will certainly appreciate a handset like the S40. It's a fine phone for working.
The CAT S40 is available from Amazon.com for $399.
