Yes because it is feasible by economic means and in the means of performance.

Yes it worth it particularly if you are on a tight budget. And software updates are available for mtk devices as well.My xolo Q800 recently got an upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2. Micomax devices also gets their updates.
I have a xolo q800 (quad core,1gb ram,8mp camera and sensors like gyro, compass etc) got just under 10k Indian currency which can beat all other branded devices under this price tag in terms of performance. 1080p videos and most of the common games are running smooth. All thanks goes to the mediatek chip set.

hi,

most of the time it's uses in economic devices.... most of android economics devices never rec any updates from manufacturer..

if some one enthusiastic he may search unofficial update & can use them on own risk...

yes they..are but try to stick to brands like huawei and gionee..they atleaset have decent after sales service.. also as far mediatek goes.. go for the newer chipsets... mt6572, mt6582, mt6588 and mt6592.. they all pack in mali gpus,, that are optimized for a large majority of games.. this translates to really good performance.. if you are going to try HD gaming.. stick with mt6582 and upwards with 1gb of RAM.

Depends on your usage.

If you are on a tight budget, but want a worthwhile product which will atleast give you value for money, then mtk is pretty good.

However if you expect tons of development and/or superior after market support, then others would make more sense, more "worthy".
