CAT S42, S52 or S62 PRO & Sailfish?

Is there anyone who has experience of installing and using Sailfish on a CAT Smartphone?
What are the challenges? What works well? What works less well?

I need a “Rugged phone” that is at least MIL-STD-810G compliant. Only IP68 compliancy is not enough.



(For those of you who are wondering what I am talking about here are the specs for all 3 of them.)

These are relatively rare handsets so i doubt anyone tried to port sailfish on them.

In short unless someone ports sailfish on them -which is quite a task- forget about it.

Yes, I know they are rare, but there might be others like me who really need a MIL-STD-810G phone and have tried it out. :slightly_smiling_face:

I used a non-smartphone CAT phone before I got my first smartphone and it was great from a durability point of view. My first smartphone, a Sony Xperia with Sailfish, just hasn’t managed life with me very well.
My hands don’t work very well and I tend to dropp things and my phone gets dropped a couple of times a week. Needless to say that the phone is mostly not dropped onto a clean or water puddle free surface, let alone a soft.
I was hoping that a casing that was shock absorbing and extra screen protection glass would to the trick, but unfortunately that has not been the case. :disappointed:

I can recommend a rugged cas, for ex. from Love mei. I have one for the X10pro, it is IP7 and really undestructable.

Thanks, but I don’t think it will do the job. frowning:

My phone looks ok on the outside, some small damages but nothing major, it is the inside that is broken. I.e. microphone, the plugg for headphones, usb port, etc, etc, etc works proly and get a little bit worse for each dropp it experience.

Do the edges interfere with SFOS swipe actions?
