Fortunately they have a very useful user community that is very quick to identify and report any software defects. They don't really need to spy on users to "enhance the software experience".

Other thing, what is BBK?
That's pretty tame and arguably very specific data compared to what other brand have been collecting. Ofc one will only get threathen if they start writing about big brand dirty secret.
Pretty sure this must be the case with OPPO VIVO too as BBK is parent company for all 3 of them.
Hopefully if this can get senses back to Indians who are buying 1+, OPPO VIVO like crazy.
That's how they price low . Their smartphone send vital data to their supportive storage service and im exchange of them they get enough money to build a cheap product.

This is sad and scary, we're living in a world where privacy is no longer our rights.
Unfortunately all android oem's/device makers have the ability to do this for different reasons. But that is the world of android, nothing new...
Actually i believe all phones manufacture are secretly collecting data. Just that they not yet discovered by us. - i believe the most evil 1 is apple.
