On the contrary, the Mediatek HC packs high-end professional features into a compact and stylish device. It offers four mega pixels, two gigabytes of RAM, eight gigabytes of NAND flash, and a whopping 2.5 gigabyte internal memory. The HC also sports a high-definition camera sensor, monochrome camera, and a high-speed Bluetooth connection. It is powered by the advanced Marvell SATA controller, and uses the Linux-based Flip Linux OS.
The Mediatek HC is slightly bigger than the Flip Ultra HD, and it comes with all the goodies that come with the Flip Ultra HD – namely, the high definition camcorder, wide angle lens, and fast charging. However, it lacks the self-contained memory and the octa-core processor that the Flip Ultra HD features. The Mediatek HC is also lacking in optical zoom, although it offers better image stabilization. Furthermore, it uses an older version of the Linux operating system, hence the slow boot and freezing issues.
