The 6-incher Chronos Cross has a very simple, yet handy built in its belt. Despite its size, the Chronos Cross was easy to handle and does not slip. However, if you’re looking for a premium design, then you might not find that on the Chronos Cross since utility is its priority and looks is only secondary. Like the Chronos Byte, SKK also offers the Chronos Cross with a free case for every purchase.
The SKK Chronos Cross features an 8MP rear camera, backed up by a 5MP selfie camera. First samples caught with the Chronos Cross showcases an impressive brightness level though detail and sharpness are so-so.

The Chronos Cross delivered a pretty decent performance, though, like the Chronos Byte, we also felt a few lags on when we’re opening apps. There were also slight delays upon switching to various apps though it didn’t entirely ruin our experience. Please stay tuned for our full review for we’ll include the benchmark ratings on the Chronos Cross.
The SKK Chronos Cross carries a vanilla Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is actually quite old. Nevertheless, software experience was manageable with its UI delivering a pretty expected stock Android experience overall. There were a few problems experienced when we were playing a video, with the Chronos Cross not exactly playing the video as planned.
First thoughts so far
The SKK Chronos Cross, despite being the big brother kinda felt it falls down in the specs category to the Chronos Byte. Nevertheless, the bigger Chronos Cross performs highly similar of the Chronos Byte in a lot of departments, mostly in camera shooting and for a Php 3,299, it should deliver a decent performance, despite its problems.
