What do the Chinese do with you data that the US doesn't?!you have no idea. you really need to read more. and not just leftist stuff but neutral & sane stuff.
i mean just look up the Zoom Tianamen Square issue that happened recently. or the BBC reporter who was tracked by the Chinese in 10 mins. nuff said. just a tiny sample.
Andreidinutu, 07 Aug 2020I don't use them but my country still has allview phones, assembled here in romaniaIt clearly says on the back of the phone: „Designed by Allview in EU. Assembled in China“.
Anyway, if the Redmond company buys TikTok, it will destroy the app, just like everything else it has bought.
Also, the orane man is just a sore snob: „If I can’t have it, NO ONE WILL!!!“
I find it hilarious that Trump is taking heavy action against TikTok only after his Tulsa rally flopped. Why? Because it was a trend on Tiktok to reserve tickets to said rally then not attend. People all over the world were doing this, and it worked. And we'd do it again BOP BOP
straight up MAFIA, sell us your business or close up. Trump is a dictator.

Andreidinutu, 07 Aug 2020I don't use them but my country still has allview phones, assembled here in romaniaAllview in not assembled here. Allview just rebrand some chinese products and put their software on it.
It's strange to see China create such a noise now that Wechat and Tik Tok are getting banned. Is FB, Google allowed in China;) apparently not!!! You can't use the regular google news too. WhatsApp is also not allowed freely. China went to the extent of even starting to ban using VPN.
- I really don't have enough info of information tracking across all these Apps/Services but in terms of monopoly - China always did what they felt best in their country. So they should now stop complaining what US, Europe or others do

Andreidinutu, 07 Aug 2020Jokes on you I prefer european productsSure.. Can you count one? Oh wait, you cant..
At least you can always have WIKO smartphone (generic chinese phone, with 'w' letter from France, software from US-China, SoC from Taiwan, or China, plastic fantastic build from local factory... Is than Europe mobile market in 2020? We are 20 years behind China, and just because of USA, and Microsoft.. Thats why (you can look around), we using now, Korean phones (Samsung), USA based, China made (iPhones), even those Chinese phones like Huawei, or Xiaomi... There is no anymore EU brand phone (if you don't count Wiko). Alcatel is licenced by Chinese TCL, HMD Global Oy is just unknown Chinese company, with little room in Finland, those phones are made only in China, software is 3-th class, launcher3..
So, good luck with your USA, but next time try to speak for your self, not for all countrys in old continent.

[deleted post]Because of people like you, Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens, Philips, Alcatel.. Al EU brands, does not exist anymore in mobile world (those licenced 'company' like hmd, tcl, does not count)..
Now they trying, to do China, with same formula like in Europe, 10-8 years ago, i hope (because of s..y Microsoft) that they will fail more than 'Surface phone' :D
