Another reason why MediaTek is bad is the fact that they made their chipsets identify a benchmark so that it makes the performance level which the benchmark is saying 30% better with a slightly edited benchmark which makes the chipset unable to identify if it's a benchmark then it shows that the performance is 30% lower.
