In less than 2 years, cell phone market definitely will be FORCED to another stage because of Mediatek. We all will be paying less for cellphone that's for sure.

But don't forget that you aren't the only person living in the world and also that not all the brands that use mediatek's chips are necessary crapy. Finally it could be said: One man's trash is another's treasure

A 1Ghz processor, 512Mb RAM and a higher resolution. Worked flawless, even with that let's say laggy Android 2.2 (last official update). This Alcatel i was talking about has a lite 4.1.2 and it works like crap, like really really crap! And it doesn't have anything installed on it, just the apps i use everyday, like: Facebook, Whatsapp and a few more (5 at most). Figure it out! Trust me, those 500+ phones are there for a reason (not the iphone, that's another story). And i`m talking about flagships, that's all there is for me, what's bellow the flagships doesn't count.
I had used mediatek's chips and they ARE best bang for the buck... It doesn't really matter the opinion from nerd-type users when the 99% of the regular users are more concerned about saving money... Give them 2 years and those chips are going to be top selling items.
Good going however I'm expecting these two processors to be lower than 28nm fabricated. One thing where MediaTek needs to work is to deliver the drivers to manufacturers. All the phones powered by MediaTek processors are stuck at Android 4.2.x.
Thats just bullshit, they perform like they are required to. the only downside they have is, that they often get hot. and are not very battery friendly. also without these chinese processors, every high-end smartphone would be like 500$+.
Thanks to these, there a brands like acer, huawei and alcatel who can come up with smartphones with very decent performance for a really nice price... so before making such statements, i would like to suggest you to look beyong YOUR oppinions, and look towards the market.
everything powered by mediatek sucks and/or will suck in time. the chinese version of phones.
Give us a 2.2GHz cortex A53 paired with Mali-604 or Mali 450 clocked at 800
cstd, 18 Feb 2014Looks like the author didn't do his research properly. Or... is a company founded in 1997 cons... moreIntel was founded in 1968, Qualcomm in '85, even NVIDIA was formed in '93. So, yes - MediaTek is young.
MediaTek sure is becoming more and more impressive, great going :o)
