And your exemple makes me laugh!
Mt6589? Are you serious? It's not even 4g!!!
Welcome to 2013!!!!
True this soc and the previous one (mt6577) equiped many phones that had GPS's problems...but wake up, it was in 2012/2013!
It's not even sure that problem came from soc (antenna? Software?)

Try some Oppo or Xiaomi phones with mediatek's instead...no need to use Engineer mode to get very fast and accurate fix with, for exemple, Oppo A3, Redmi 6 or Redmi Note 8 Pro for exemple.

Please, tell me the name of the devices you had in hand?

wertu, 10 Nov 2019wow really, which mediatek chip gives 1m accuracy ? I need thatMy Redmi Note 8 Pro can get 1m accuracy...

With much more competitive price than Snapdragon or Bionic they would and should be more preferable.
Because greedy manufacturers like Samsung Sony or other companies can save a lot on a chipsets but keep same price to increase profits.

I think that day should be recorded as the great MediaTek processor is being launched.

I heard that MediaTek 5G chipset is 7nm in size. Would be a tough competition to even Snapdragon 855+.

Anonymous, 10 Nov 2019Why are 5G chips substantially larger than previous chips? Even ... moreFirst gen HSPA and LTE were also too big to be integrated on-die. It's probably mostly due to the fact that manufacturers wants to get the next gen wireless out before they're done building an all-in-one SoC.

AverageUser, 10 Nov 2019Both, Exynos and Kirin outperformed Snapdragon like how Galaxy S... moreVery este, because in flagship, Kirin normally lack begind, exynos in the other hand, it had good CPUs but in GPU and Power management lack a lot, that is the reason why Samsung started the development of its own GPU.

Why are 5G chips substantially larger than previous chips? Even first gen 3G or 4G weren't this huge.

Anonymous, 10 Nov 2019Support MediaTek? Are you kidding me? Never buy any phone powere... moreBoth, Exynos and Kirin outperformed Snapdragon like how Galaxy S8 Exynos version was better than SD one, it was rare, but sometimes it happened.
Kirin isn't joke either.

At the other hand, MediaTek is just sad...

Android system updates has more to do with brands than being snapdragon or mediatek

Hoping to see great things from mediatek's new flagship soc.

Unless you want really bad phone with no updates and slower performance after few months. Only Apple's processor can compete with Snapdragon. Exynos and Kirin are better than MediaTek but can't stand against Snapdragon.
