Samsung Cronus in development – new WP8 smartphone

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2013, 01:52 posted on

Oops! It looks like Samsung accidentally leaked the name of a smartphone it is currently working on. The handset in question is called the Cronus and it is a Windows Phone 8 model of unknown tier. How did this happen? Well, someone noticed a reference to the Cronus smartphone in a description of a Windows Phone app called Mobile Care...

Keep focusing on your Galaxy, Samsung! Leave the WP8 smartphones to Nokia.

Yup ! That's exactly what they'll do.

Take advice from teenage trolls on the internet rather then believing their vast & experienced experts !

You see the whole world doesn't start & end with mobile phones.

Samsung is revered in the technology world for its single handedly pushing the OLED technology, their vast & manufacturing capabilities for RAMS, processor and also their TVs.

If only one tries he can accomplish and regarding GS4 I'll let the sales do the talking ;)

lol 520 and 620 are cheap ones not high ends either so plastic will do just fine and nice comparison btw between cheapest wp8 v flagship SGS4 quite equal in build quality since lumia9xx are way ahead of SGS4 build quality

The only thing that's cheap about the GS4 (and almost every other Samsung phone for the past 2 years) is the glossy finish and the flimsy battery cover. I am perfectly fine with plastic, as long as it has a matte finish and has a unibody design, both of which the GS4 lacks.

The GS3 and GS4 are great in many categories, but design is not one of them.

and this is the reason why I prefer HTC and Nokia over Samsung..
HTC has much better quality and their hardware isn't bad.. No Timely updates is their only problem.

It feels better to have Jelly bean and may be key lime pie in future ,second after nexus rather than holding polycarbonate or aluminum
And it also feels much better when u can change and upgrade ur battery to 5200 by mugen power rather than sticking to 2300 :D

I understood your comment you were trying to point out Samsung's paid trolls but I was expecting a valid argument for ur first comment not dirt kicking !

Regarding ur first comment, if you make a point back it up with a supporting explanation don't try deter from the original argument !

My comment was to ask u what 'expert opinion' u had for advising Samsung ? U really think they should listen to u not their experts ?
