Kort testrapport CAT S42 Smartphone: Stevige, wasbare smartphone met grip

Nu met een lagere prijs. Het vorige model kostte ongeveer 500 euro. De CAT S42 is echter twee keer zo goedkoop. Dit is mogelijk omdat CAT de productiekosten heeft verlaagd, vooral als het gaat om het scherm en de batterij. Lees ons testrapport om erachter te komen of de robuuste, waterdichte smartphone zijn geld waard is of niet.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

Om de schermhelderheid te verlagen schakelen sommige laptops het backlight erg snel aan en uit. Dit gebeurt aan een dergelijk hoge frequentie dat het niet zichtbaar is voor het menselijk oog. Als de frequentie te laag is kunnen personen met gevoelige ogen geïrriteerd geraken, hoofdpijn krijgen en zelfs flickering waarnemen.
Screen flickering / PWM niet waargenomen

Ter vergelijking: 51 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 17612 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz waargenomen.

Responstijd Scherm

De responstijden van het scherm tonen hoe snel het scherm in staat is om van één kleur naar de andere te veranderen. Trage responstijden kunnen aanleiding geven tot 'nabeelden' rond bewegende objecten of het scherm wazig maken (blur). Vooral spelers van snelle 3D-games hebben baat bij een scherm met snelle responstijden.
       Responstijd Zwart naar Wit
28 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 11 ms stijging
↘ 17 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde relatief trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 60 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (24.4 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs

Het scherm vertoonde trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.8 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 93 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (38.8 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.

Het is een slimme zet dat CAT zijn S42 goedkoper heeft gemaakt. In de afgelopen jaren is de concurrentie op het gebied van robuuste smartphones toegenomen en zijn goedkope smartphones krachtiger geworden. Gebruikers zullen het echter op hun beurt moeten doen met een HD-scherm en een kleinere batterij.

Voor degenen die denken dat de CAT S41 een betere keuze is, hebben we het volgende te zeggen: de CAT S42 is aanzienlijk goedkoper, ook al is het voorgangermodel nu bijna twee jaar oud. Bovendien biedt het snellere Wi-Fi en moderne software. Wij vinden het echter jammer dat de hardware navigatieknoppen weg moesten.

Dikke randen in 2020 zijn geen mooi gezicht. Het gewicht is echter niet te hoog voor een robuuste smartphone in deze prijsklasse. We houden van het temperatuurbeheer en de zeer degelijke batterijduur.

Een robuuste, goedkope smartphone met een goede batterijduur, snelle Wi-Fi, een laag prestatieniveau en een middelmatige camera: de CAT S42 is een allegaartje.

De CAT S42 is de moeite waard voor wie op zoek is naar een goedkope smartphone die zware omstandigheden aankan. Potentiële kopers moeten zich echter bewust zijn van de matige cameraprestaties, de slechte geluidskwaliteit en de slechte systeemprestaties.

De fabrikant zou meer aandacht moeten besteden aan de beveiligingspatches, omdat deze op het moment van schrijven verouderd zijn. Dit is erg problematisch voor een zakelijk apparaat als de CAT S42.
