I had a CAT S60 few years ago, a fairly typical ruggedised phone with mid-range spec, but with a FLIR thermal "Predator vision" camera and hardware navigation bar buttons!

It was a colossal brick of a phone. but the thermal camera was very useful for work and around the house....considering getting an addon FLIR camera for my Pro1.

Would probably be rocking an S62 Pro if the Pro1 didn't exist.

The camera looks really cool (it's not actually any use to me) but that would require stock android, right?

Yeah, no way to OEM unlock these phones. IIRC there was temp root at one point, but it got patched out pretty quickly. Haven't looked into development for these phones in a long time.

Well they are more business oriented phones so to be expected.  I was having a look at them the other day tempted to have one just for the thermal camera but I don't really have a use for it though 😅

Very happy Unihertz Jelly Pro and Atom user here. Not anymore since I have my Pro 👍🏾.

I do quite like the phones these make been tempted by one of the jelly/atom my self just as something to use when I go out and don't want a big phone with me.

They also make an Atom L/XL (XL has puch to talk) which is a bit larger. I loved the Atom (regular mini) and am trying to get my hands on one again. Rugged, waterproof and very compact. I can only recommend one, ideal phone for when you're out.

And even though it's not a phone, the GPD Win 3 is worth mentioning in here (I think):

Not strictly a phone, but the Dragonbox Pyra that is made by our forum member @EvilDragondoes have a SIM slot, too. The German IT news channel golem.de features an interview with him today:

Great interview @EvilDragon ! But what really kills me is the video. Impressive talking!
