It is usable, but software support is much more limited than Snapdragon phones typ (dependent on OEM also).

The radio design isn't as good as the Snapdragon ones, both cellular network and WLAN (WiFi).

Mobile legend claimed the Vivo v5s is the best phone to play their game.

Vivo v5s runs on a MediaTek MT6750 the most basic processor that doesn't even have a name.

So if the most basic processor can a high end game without hiccup, imagine those x25 processor are Monster.

Hahah noobs lah their are
So many user xx complain of lag on their game

While VG not much issue and its game even more higher demanding over ML

Esp android if gaming some game won't let u even install it due to compablity too unlike iOS

i owned a few mediatek. some cpus offer better value in terms of performance and price. the problem for mediatek is that their drivers are not open source. so it is difficult to upgrade software to latest android. if you bought a xiaomi note in 2013, youre still stuck with kitkat in 2017. However if you bought the xiaomi note 4g which comes with snapdragon, you can use android nougat

You mean Redmi Note 3G and Redmi Note 4G? Because Mi Note is part of the flagship Mi line, everything are Snapdragon SoC haha

It's decent for everyday usage, but if there's a choice for Snapdragon then it's best to get that instead.

"Poor use of space" - MKBHD.

I would rather you wait or get the Mi Max 2 export than get HTC U Ultra. It isn't worth the flagship level prices. 3000mAh in a 6 inch class display is a joke for a high end device.

Depend your target user. For casual or elderly users, they might not "feel"the difference. For not demanding or power users, Snapdragon or Exynos is always preferred. In terms of both hardware and rom support.

Actually my concern with Mediatek got to do with the Mali GPU. Quite worried is because it would seem the Adreno GPU is a better choice in terms of reliability. You think this concern is valid or not??
