Jobaz, 01 May 2020Xiaomi is the next target.... Just watch out..... What happened to live and let's live........Hopefully, xiaomi-ccp will be next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is about time…
trilulilucoder, 01 May 2020Are you Xiaomi user? EwwWWww! What?!
The real problem is not the fact that they collect data. Even from the early days of the internet's commercial availability, cookies, beacons and other types of tools have been used to keep track of users' behaviour and activity online.
The REAL problem is: What do they actually DO with the data that they collect? They can claim anything that they want, as you can't actually check and there is no proof one way or the other…
Lol so many delusion people in the comments think they are safe because:
They use ad blockers
A different brand smartphone
Don't use Chinese products lol
Using different browsers
These same people think fingerprint scanners are "secure" and think IOS is more secure...
Don't make me laugh no matter where you run you will be tracked and datamined one way or another
Unless your on Blockchain and even that isnty perfect
Noncy, 01 May 2020If it's not Samsung, Lg, or Sony am not buying.. i don't trust all this Chinese companies ..Then again, take a look at all new LG Velvet midranger, that's your chance, after all this years LG is in GSMArena news, and not in low profit in smartphone market - news.
Anonymous, 01 May 2020Yes but xiaomi takes it to a whole new lecel, they even track what apps you open. While Google... moreYou realise I said I use DuckDuckGo in my comment that you replied to right..?
Noncy, 01 May 2020If it's not Samsung, Lg, or Sony am not buying.. i don't trust all this Chinese companies So in the last couple of years you didn't buy anything? Hehe

No one is giving Xiaomi permission to listen alone with its users playing music, viewing their children's photos, a video of a user scratching their ass, etc.
Xiaomi has gone way to far here and I'd suspect an antitrust investigation is coming fast!
In fact, if you read Android User Statement Agreement cames something like that. Thats because Google knows all your routine like time travel to work, time to home, favorite restaurants, etc, etc.
Remember Google Knows You Better Than You Know Yourself

stop comparing and defending to any of them that won't make anything better until you create something new to go over them, do something productive.
trilulilucoder, 01 May 2020That was in the past, and this is now. We need to live in a moment (:whose are able to pay for a phone thats behind of it designed with a bitting apple, so no problem go & buy it. even i, i like to have one...but....!
after years, afew months ago with 500$ i buy four devices of MI for my family.
All of them are satisfied & happy & thaksful
i don't have much money to change phone every 3months, year or even 3year.
lets supposed thats story about collecting it true. even with that i don't have problem with collecting my data.
NotAnOpinion, 01 May 2020Apple is not listening on me when I'm playing my music. Apple is not peeking over my shoulders... moreIf you use Siri, you are being listened to and it's sending all that data as it has system wide access.
As long as any system services are connected to the Internet (which they are by default, unless you are using a proper firewall which is absent on iOS) , it is collecting general data and sharing it under the "user experience improvement" program.
All that data is used for data mining and other purposes which is an obvious violation of individual privacy rights but don't forget you accepted the terms and conditions before using any smartphone, so you are f*cked.
Anonymous, 01 May 2020Did you forget Apple Safari browser sending data to tencent servers? Or for that matter Apple ... moreYou are making a nothing burger and these two situations are waaaaaay different.
Apple started using Tencent to COMPLY WITH Chinese regulations FOR iOS DEVICES IN CHINA, NOT NO WHERE ELSE!

They have enough own problems in market share (now they are 4-th, world wide, imagine(:) past is past, give them a break (:
Guys even now your data is always collecting whatever you do and access in internet
Anonymous, 01 May 2020Yes but xiaomi takes it to a whole new lecel, they even track what apps you open. While Google... moreSimply replace Google with duckduckgo?
LOL what about play services, the biggest Spyware on the market?
I bet you have given all permissions to it and it is also allowed to connect to Internet.
Translation, your data is being sent for data mining.
If you use Google assistant, be assured that you are being listened to even before the "okay Google" command.
