Milo, 24 Dec 2015Then again, many people don't need much more than a Ford Fiesta for a car...Very true, and is good that there are competitively priced phones of there that suit their needs. But that's not what we are talking about.. To say that Mediatek's processors have no heating issues compared to one of the fastest processors out there is a ridiculous comparison to make.
Mattt, 25 Dec 2015Lol. Any figures to back that up? A quick search proves you wrong. Mediatek is Taiwan's larges... moreActually, TSMC is the largest. By country, it goes US, South Korea, then Taiwan. Mediatek only broke into the top 10 recently.
Jin1234, 24 Dec 2015That doesn't come as surprising at all. Don't you know tech history? Mediatek is from Taiwan. ... moreLol. Any figures to back that up? A quick search proves you wrong. Mediatek is Taiwan's largest producer, but they only cracked the top 10 for the first time this year.
I see many comments about multi-core being less important than single-core, but people fail to realize that phones are no long a single task device. You've probably got several different chat programs simultaneously, email clients, calendar and timer events, all that can be allocated to many different CPUs. The real CPU hogs are games and those that don't take advantage of mult-cores would at least have a CPU that is pretty much dedicated to them. So, I would say multi-core performance is a lot more important once your single-core can run the game of your choice smoothly.
ok, 23 Dec 2015let me think samsung and apple that make billions with huge R&D investments vs a Chinese O... moreThat doesn't come as surprising at all. Don't you know tech history? Mediatek is from Taiwan. Taiwan had always been the largest chips maker in the whole world for decades.

ron, 24 Dec 2015and the good thing about Mediatek processor is no overheat issue anything. That's like saying you never get a speeding ticket if you drive a tiny engined city car.. Most of Mediatek's processors until now have been quite underwhelming so is no surprise that have been no overheating issues.
alex3run4, 23 Dec 2015Still multicore matters more so...LOL, no! it's the opposite. Every process is using single core, but not all software or apps are programmed for using multiple cores. You would be astonished if you knew how little programmers utilised multi cores.
ron, 24 Dec 20152,000 units on Single-core is still a great score.and the good thing about Mediatek processor is no overheat issue anything.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2015I heard that Mediatek chips have problems with GPS and some apps like Line... Is it true?extremely wrong.i have m9+ and my brother 2nd phone is desire 526g+ and see many mediatek cpu phones.all are great in wifi,mobile net and social networks like line,viber,telegram and ....

alex3run4, 23 Dec 2015Still multicore matters more so...No, there isn't anything you can't run well on a single thread, yet there are a lot of things you can't run well on multiple threads.
Mediatek aims for efficiency more than pure power.
Never mind it (X20) does not get the top position but it might offer just the right package for a lot of devices.
Time will tell.
Martin, 23 Dec 2015Apple is dual core and in the single core is betterStill multicore matters more so...
