Agreed on the screen but not processor. Kirin processor is so so only, just like MTK processor, it always win in term of benchmark score only.
This is quite odd a statement. If you are not looking at benchmark scores, when how are you measuring which is faster? MTK chips I don't deny isn't great. But for the price of the top end Helios, there is no competition from Qualcomm back then. The closest was the SD 65x series, but is not widely used likely due to the older fab @ 28nm and possibly price. For me, the pain point with MTK chips is the compatibility or rather lack of compatibility with apps.

I've used Kirin 970 for something, which I do not experience the problem. While clearly not as fast as the SD 835, it is generally the GPU that makes them slower in benchmarks.

Wondering is anyone else comparing between the Mi Pad 4 vs Huawei M5 8.4. The latter has a higher-spec screen, expandable storage, but on the other hand slightly more expensive and smaller battery.
For me, if the difference is not great, Huawei may be a better buy. Only reason is because they tend to have better after sales firmware support for their devices. For Xiaomi, most likely you won't get much if any firmware update/ support once you buy their product.

base don my experience using tab pro-s, using windows based tablet is really different experience from using traditional tablet like ipad/android.
even simple thing like adjusting screen brightness, volume, time seek via touch gesture is not straight forward.
I would suggest approaching surface go as different category from android tablet
This is correct. I am using a Lenovo Miix 720 currently. Despite Win 10 marketing or trying to make itself touch friendly, it is better but nowhere close to Android/ iOS. Significant number of software on Windows don't support touch screen well.

The most distinctive difference between the 2 is actually the GPU and manufacturing process. Both of which gives the edge to SD660.
I do know the difference
I'm using a 960 kirin now and in no way the same calibre as mediatek
Update comes whenever android patches anything
Non-user should just stop spreading false information

Lack of fixes is well know in mobile market for Huawei.
Recently, Huawei just made another announcement on stepping up of fixes.
Some of the older news:
https://www.androidauthority.com/hua...emui-8-807677/

These are especially true for the global version.

Everything about the kirin 960 looks superior than the sd660.
So how?
Not the first time and only forum you try to spread false information
Look carefully in comparison.
And take note price vs performance.
That's not false information. These info are available in general public.

One thing for sure... higher chance of custom rom for SD660
Both are base on Cortex anyway. Different is SD release source code and driver. So is easier to have custom rom develop. Even for the manufacture's own developer team, they find this helps in developing new function. This is why even for Xiaomi, you see different in product update for SD vs MTK.

Kirin SoC face the same issue.
Kirin is Huawei own code, mix and match Cortex and GPU on SoC. If Huawei don't release fixes. No one can (just like iOS).

Anyway one is eMUI and one is MiUI. They are base on same open platform.

Oh now you bring in price/performance
You can continue read news and hearsay problem which doesn't affect normal usage, and spread the problems while you never even touched one before lol
