    Used to have a flagship Mediatek processor on a Meizu device some six years ago.


    1) Cheaper than the contemporary flagships with almost matching performance.

    2) Flyme OS (Meizu's custom skin) was a mess back then, but on my phone everything was silky smooth (most of the time).

    3) Camera performance was way better than the iPhone 5s and the Samsung flagship galaxy S5 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 801processor that I had back then, I don't know if that can be attributed to Meizu's algorithm or the processor's ISP.


    1) Heating issues. When it got bad, it would make you fear for your life. I was certain on a lot of occasions that my phone was about to burst. I even turned it off and put it on a small ice pack, so that it would cool down.
    Performance really lagged a lot, during such occasions.

    2) Lack of support from OEM and lack of custom roms.

    3) Unreliable connectivity, both on SIM cards and WiFi networks.

    Final thoughts:

    I know Mediatek has come a long way since then and that their new line of flagship chipset is a much needed competition to Qualcomm which has now monopolized the android chipset market and is a major reason for the skyrocketing prices of Android flagships.

    Having said that, I've been hurt before and I'm not ready for second chances with Mediatek.

    It'll take a little more to erase the traumatic memories of owning a Mediatek flagship processor in the past.

    Not sure how I would feel about it, never used a mediatek chipset. But we can just wait and see how oneplus will optimize the software for the chip

    Mediatek has come a long way and it's not bad as it used to be but I think most of the people would still prefer Qualcomm SD over mediatek.

    Custom rom support and mods is what I crave for in case OEM doesn't give enough support. So QC>>Mediatek

    If it is true they would make it more difficult for the software departement to keep on track with the updates probably, but that is something One plus doesn't care about anny more it seems

    Man I wanted a dimensity processor on the nord ! I was much hoping that oneplus which had always been using flagship chipsets for their devices would continue the tradition.

    Mediatek no thanks. For one thing games are optimised for Snapdragon processors so you start coming across incompatible issues and bugs etc. Nothing worse than playing a game for a few years only to get compatability issues
