This should be the way forwards. Miui apps, Google apps, Huawei app store, etc should be the choice of the user..
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2020like the chinese did with google youtube fb uber twtter wiki etc ?they are china, but a country that claiming himself leader of free world most do far better
"It also promises that Indians will have 100% control over their data, including exactly what all is being uploaded"...
Aha... We can only wish. But these are modern times, where we can expect anything but the above statement.
This is how MIUI should've come by default. There's a reason why such steps (banning) should be taken, else they'll never consider doing such things.

The cheapest ... moreMost senseless comment ever heard.
India goes where is not decided by you. Even US is following India in banning chinese apps. Many people in India won't spend money on Apple or other high end not because they cannot afford but because they don't like to pay premium (like fools who pay 80% premium to buy phones)

TikTok has been collecting everything. Including live data. All sorts of Chinese brands has been caught transmitting data without user permission.
Cambridge Analytica made huge amounts of damage with an extremely limited budget. China can do the same amount of damaging impact on everybody at the same time.
The "spying" issue media is taking about isn't the danger, it's the planned/projected attempt to influence "everybody".

The cheapest iPhone cost 1 years wages of average Indian, even an engineer need to spend 3 months salary to afford a iPhone 11.

Monopoly os the worst thing that cna happen to technology. So if you support google as and end user, you would be pretty high in the scale of foolishness. Sure we can go without google services if we try and feel threatened enough. But you must know who is the CEO of google and alphabet.

Keep believing that Google and Facebook only use data for ads.
That's the company talking point to the public.
They are paying fines for data breach every week in EU courts.

Except if you're a US citizen where data is used for political purposes. I don't support Facebook and Google's data policy though.
China also sells data for ads, but China also installs malware on your phones, and not even open about any data policy.
Project Nightfall already discussed how China wants to take over the world. Hence just take a look at how cheap some Chinese smartphones can be.

You'll lay down the facts, but then they'll look the other way and keep pushing their agenda down our throats, though they know in their heart, that they are serving us lies.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2020It's not about privacy. It's because of china india conflictIt is 100% privacy and security, which is why the software is banned in a country half in conflict with China.
China is painting itself into a corner by refusing to respect other nation's privacy, they're probably very close to getting all their tech banned in all developed countries.
The concerns are genuine, as the level of destructiveness China would be able to assert with this much stolen data, and bigger funding to use it, would make Cambridge Analytica look like a middle school science project.

Wow, what about US banning huawei. What about Australia and many European refusing to use chinese tech in 5g sector. Inferior tech as well? We have a ultra developed and efficient space tech and we can't develop smartphones if we try? Good logic
Well, this is going to shut up all those idiots who were saying the ban was for nothing.
You take a stand against wrongdoings, and they will have to change their ways.
Removing those shady apps even proves that something was up with them & Indian govt. caught up to them
The EU has strong GDPR laws & now India has also taken a stand, Rest of the Asian countries should also take measures for privacy & data security.
