I intend to buy the most latest and powerful dual-sim (GSM) android phone available in the market today. Based on the discussions in this thread, I note that for "dual sim dual active" android phone class, it seemed that ZTE U960 is still the best and there has not been any new phone yet to be released soon that will replace it. Is it correct?

Moving to the "dual sim dual standby" android phone class, from the news I found out that Mediatek has issued its latest chipset for dual sim (dual standby I assume) android phone, namely MT6577. From my checking in etotalk website, this chipset has quickly been adopted by three major brands (in addition to other chinese brands) in their latest phones, namely:
ZTE V970 [www.************/print_page_p3164&ei=nXwmULGWG4m8rAfxpoHAAQ&usg=AFQ jCNGt3zB7YCbAAAnvpXq9CC8h7u8TIA]
HuaWei U8836D / U8832D / Ascend G500D

Lenovo A789

together with one other significant competitor:

Blu Vivo 4.3

From the specs being provided in the above-mentioned websites, the following is the comparison:
Huawei (dual camera 5mp / 0.3mp, 4.3" screen TFT-LCD and 1930mAh battery)
Lenovo (dual camera 5mp / 0.3mp, 4" screen TFT-LCD and 2000mAh battery)
Blu Vivo (dual camera 8mp / 1.3mp, 4.3” screen super AMOLED and 1600mAH battery)
ZTE (single camera 5mp [no dual camera], 4.3” screen IPS-LCD and 1600mAh battery)

Which phone is the most recommended one?

In addition, I found a comment stating that: "with the announcement of the MT6577, MediaTeK claims it easily outperforms Qualcomm’s dual core CPU Snapdragon MSM8255" [www.chinaphonereview.com/mediatek-release-mt6577-dual-core-processor]. Can this claim be verified?
