Anonymous, 21 Jul 2017I hear Meizu has patent problem with Snapdragon. So Meizu will use Mediatek/HiSilicon/Exynos SoC.Not anymore, they just ironed out the problem with Qualcomm and signed some patent agreement last year. I think they choose MTK because of good offer and expected profit.
Given the glut of shitty SD 625 and SD 630 based phones in the 300-400 USD range (looking at you Oppo, Vivo, Lenovo), this is a good deal.
Two cameras, one with OIS, a near flagship chipset and a ultra smooth OS. What is not to like?
Always prefer Meizu's OS over the likes of Xiaomi because of the unerring smoothness. Locked at 60fps seems like.

Because after Helio x10 came out we find out they overheating piece of inefficient turd.
Because Helio X20/25 is exactly the same turd as previous gen, only a bit faster.
Sounds like a troll? Even the reviewers from China doesn't approve any MTK Helio series as top tiers CPU. They went as far to mock it as their national joke in the today's handphone market.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017Mediatek always better than Qualcomm overheaters.Well...
We'll see, but hopefully it won't turn out that it was just over hyped.
Helio X30 chipset is a very capable chipset just as SD835 & HiSilicon kirin 970, why is MediaTek getting a bad reputation for? People are too eager to dump on it before it can prove it's potentials, trolls will be trolls.
