Nobody should buy ANY Chinese or Taiwanese equipment ever.
The US should ban the usage of any such devices that just leak data and info to other parties.

Well that is free-market capitalism...when US companies take over countries and run their economy, it's fine, they represent US interests that trump popular sovereignty and local businesses and companies, eg. local interests. When the Chinese try to play the capitalist game internationally, it's all bars and holds and chokes...
...there is no free market, other than a goal to open up market to our "own" companies, functioning as pseudo-ideology used when "we" have the upper hand...if you don't open your economy to them and their banks, you're isolationist, shunned by the "international community"/free world...

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018I just purchased 2 ZTE phones! What will happen if they are banned ? 3 possible options:
the kindest- Those who already purchased a ZTE phone may keep it. but they don't have any ability to go to a tech store to fix stuff if it gets broken.
Neutral- A recommendation to switch a phone. with a refund or other rewards.
Harshest- Confiscation. and giving you a different device with the same value/specs.
or even worse. Imprisonment.
those are merely speculations though. I am not even a US citizen.
Good, good. Let the US demolish itself without any outside help or influence.

I think you're nitpicking. The notorious OP5 with stealing data scandals is not in your black list, nor does OPPO and VIVO, same parent company.
Are these 3 slipping your radar, or you just deliberately omitting them from your short list?
And oh, you go as far as taiwanese companies. So they're selling their classified data Communist too now??
HTC is taiwanese ... Do you break your oath to sense UI, too?
I had a gold LeEco Le S8. Only $142. Beautiful phone but software was terrible. My apps would crash or the screen would go black. EUI had lag. Returned it two days later for a refund. Really wanted to keep it but will never trust a Chinese branded phone ever again. Difference between made in China and Chinese brands. Don't trust the latter.
The irony is my Xiaomi Mi 3 still works beautifully and it turns 4 this July. But from my experience, I don't trust Chinese and Taiwanese brands. I don't like HiSuite or Mi PC Suite. I don't like their custom skins. Avoid ASUS as well. Sticking to LG, Sony, Motorola, or Nokia for now on even if the latter two is either owned by Lenovo or known as HMD.
Better off with Apple and Samsung over any China brand. Don't trust Chinese.

though i agree with the china government spying part
just know that CCP has been doing this government thing for 97 years while americans have been doing it for 200+ years.. and if you link them back to the british days even longer.. they have much better experience in deceiving the public and giving a sense of "freedom"
when CCP monitors you, they do it in your face
when NSA does it, they do it behind your back
not saying CCP is right, but America is no saint either
As someone from Europe i own a Huawei p10 and i love it! Huawei is right behind Apple and Samsung IMO for quality and tech. I can't wait to buy new p20.

Well, why would ZTE care about US sanction against ZTE - they are already denied access to the US gov market?

What a bunch of fear mongering idiots, classic politics, influence the free market in the name of "security". "Home of the brave", riiiggghht

People should do research before they talk or act.
Chinese government lies cheats and steals on daily basis. US goverment does the same. It is a competition. Many US/EU products are banned in China unless you form a joint venture with PRC company/government. Now China gets to experience the same. Form a joint venture in US, produce it in US, then you can sell it in US. Payback is a bitch.
