@Abhishek Rawal • 04 Oct, 2014 MediaTek processor, freaking GPL violator. Buy product with MediaTek processor & get stuck in Stock ROM because they'll never release the kernel source code. Things get worse when they are even charging licensing fees from device manufacturers for Linux source code which is licensed under GPLv2.
You can't just charge money for the shit that you got for free.What's up with this ass-faggotry by MT ? I don't get it!

But it is interesting how all the Android One devices which is equipped with MT SoCs have released kernel source code. Maybe Google forced them 😛

@Ankita Katdare • 07 Oct, 2014 Price and specifications don't go hand in hand. The companies need to get the whole equation right for any of these products to work in the Indian market.
