I have the Cat S52 since February 2020,and like you i havea ghost touch issue,which i have a replacement.But if you are under warranty you must contact your retailer or write an email to Cat support.After a replacement,very rare a have a ghost touch,but i have solved,trying to not optimised Quickstep app(also turn off access to notification) and UI system app,and now seems it's stabel.About lagging,i did not have issue because 4GB of Ram are enough for me,and the wifi works great and did not disconnect by itself on my S52.Again,if you are under warranty,you have a right to get a replacement.Thank you.

              BB-fan, 09 Jan 2022Hi.Same as you i have ghost touch on Cat S52,and it's ... moreGhost typing! So that's what it's called. I've done all kind of (virus)checks and restarted to factory settings but this annoying issue still is bugging me. In touch with Cat support now so hopefully they'll be able to fix it.
              Good to read I'm not the only one who experienced this, though a bit daunting in terms of the fix. Ah well .

              Other than that:. Had the phone since nov20 and I LOVE it. It's the first time since my first cellphone in 97 that I've been able to keep a phone scratchless and with an intact screen for more than a week... Despite repeated drops due to my clumsiness. And I really like not needing an extra cover for it too. In terms of performance I'm not one to expect nor need flagship quality, it matches my demands.

                    Scratched/chipped screen the first day at work, kept it in my pocket in a wallet case all day. Took it out and it was chipped and cracked so now I have to go through the hassle of of contacting cat support. Construction phone that broke the first day on the job without taking it out of my pocket........this phone is cold trash

                      I have no idea what other people are doing to their S52, but I've had mine for about a year and its great. I've dropped it several times, the case has the ding marks to prove it, but I have never had a single issue with it. The biggest disappointment is that it doesn't look like its getting Android 11. So much for wireless Android Auto, but I'm more disappointed in the enforced Google integration of Android than anything related to the S52.

                        For the first months, it was good. The camera is good only for most basic tasks. As i've seen, it is completely water/dust/ proof, even in garage, where WD40 and other chemicals sometimes contact the phone it's all good. The rubberized backing first layer is peeling off in spots from dirty hands use etc. The touchscreen is ok most of the time, but i have encountered a very annoying problem of ghost touching that can be 'fixed' temporarily when on\off phone screen. Included screen protector is bad plastic wrap. Obviously from hard use of phone in my case, its very beat up, but it goes normally. Altough for the price would not recommend buying this if you want rugged - instead buy a normal waterproof phone (which most phones are nowdays) with good screen protector and thicker case if you worry so much.

                          Two reasons this phone is so expensive ,1 Gorilla 6 glass protection, 2 ip 68 water proof, rather than that nothing special about this phone i think is expensive because of brand CAT.

                                I'm had s52 now for about 30 months. The microphone failed after 6 months, had it repaired under warranty but the repair was so bad I had it replaced for a new one. Now the screen is ghost typing and the only way to stop it is locking it. The s52 is not durable or robust, if you get it wet, speaker won't work. It's a premium priced phone which doesn't live up to advertising. Samsung next I thinks

                                  Best investment to date!
                                  Cat S52 has given me stability and a durable phone.
                                  I am very clumsy and have dropped and knocked the phone multiple times with no issues. I like it because it looks like a regular smartphone but can withstand much more.
                                  I have tried many phones and cases and this is the perfect combination of sleek smartphone with shockproof value.
                                  It should be noted that with any phone designed this durable there will be limited features, the camera is not a selling point, nor the speed. Regardless, a great shockproof and waterproof phone. Highly rate to those wanting lasting value.

                                      This is the worst phone I have ever owned in my entire life, a Nokia 2210 was more rugged than this disaster. 6 months in and the screen starts ghost touching for no apparent reason. Never dropped it, not even a scratch on the phone. 8 months in and the speaker is bust. The fingerprint reader/sensor only works when it feels like it. For the price you pay, I really expected something far better in terms of hardware quality compared to Samsung, but this phone is a piece of junk. I wouldn't even take another one for free. Back to Samsung I guess.

                                        Alex, 25 May 2021This phone is terrible. And already has a bizarre bend in i... moreWhat? You actually bought the phone? I'm pretty sure that the only people who have this phone are construction workers who got it for free from their company.

                                        If you're not a construction worker or someone doing some manual labor job, then why in the world did you buy this phone??? It's like buying a Tesla and expecting it to perform like a race car.

                                        Your fault for buying a product that was never meant for you.
