The secret to MediaTek’s rapid success is their offering of reasonable performance at quite a low cost. The company offers chipsets used in the MediaTek supported smartphones and tablet cost cheaper than its high-end competitors Qualcomm -chipset suppliers for the Samsung 4 smartphones. Each time a consumer purchases a MediaTek-supported smartphone, Qualcomm would have earned USD37 less than its Asian competitors. So while that is not enough to curtail Qualcomm, MediaTek will definitely slow it down.
