Using the thermal imaging camera is as easy as using the regular 13-megapixel one on the rear.

You simply open the FLIR camera app, preloaded and located on the home screen, and snap away.

The phone is as thick as two Samsung Galaxy S7 Actives.

You know you have a heavy-duty phone on your hands when it has an SOS button that's protected by a plastic flap.

Instead of the navigation array on the touchscreen, the Cat S60 has physical buttons with a grippy texture.

The phone can withstand being 5 meters underwater for a maximum of 60 minutes. The Gorilla Glass 4 display also works with wet fingertips.

The power button has a rigid texture to easily distinguish it from other buttons.

The yellow button is a programmable that can perform custom functions.
