MediaTek now supports worldwide LTE with the 64bit MT6735 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and the 64bit MT6753 octa-core ARM Cortex-A53. This is LTE Cat4 for GSM and CDMA! They claim to be 10-15% faster in single SIM mode and 20-30% faster with dual-sim support compared to perhaps a Qualcomm LTE Worldmode. They also claim to use less power than competitor for standby, 3G and LTE mode. Many LTE Telcos around the world have already certified support for these new MediaTek LTE parts, with support on Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, Deutche Telekom, China Unicom, China Mobile Telefonica, Verizon and AT&T. This LTE Worldmode processor is a big deal for MediaTek as it opens up the USA market for them, where MediaTek previously didn't have much support for American telecoms as MediaTek's previous 3G and LTE solutions mainly was working outside of the USA.

I ask normal people which of the top-3 high-end phablets they think is the better one among Huawei Mate 7, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the flagship phablets from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. I think the Mate7 is the best among those, although for me to recommend it to everyone, Huawei should price it at $299 instead of $499.
