the tech nerd, 06 Dec 2020Wait all Chinese phones don't???Most cheap ones ship with adware(BLU, Micromax, my|phone, Wiko & Xiaomi) how ever come comes with stuff like the Triada banking virus in most cases not planted on purpose by manufacturer in something called supply chain attacks! Now the ones I consider most in the clear of any wrong doing is BBK subsidiaries and Huawei, never found any virus, spyware or adware in these devices at worst the little ads shown in their app stores... UwU
Wait all Chinese phones don't???

Apps installing itself, adverts and stupid downloads. Now not able to control some stuff. Gionee phones are no go area for me. So sad.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2020Solution : Get a huawei. Simple
Xiaomi next to be ban, Huawei don't do phones anymore pure crap next to ZTE Chinese will never learn
solution: get a pixel
Even Mi does the same.
I've had unknown apps installing on my earlier Redmi 2 Prime without permission.
At least Mi is not the so-called "respectable Chinese company" anymore, can't talk about huawei without a personal experience though...
I know I'll get trolled by LG, Samsung owners for having cheap chinese phone, but I guess I'm myself a LG phone owner now...
yawn, old story
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2020Why'd you sus huawei tho? BBK was an imposter.. Among us funny
You may now laugh
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2020In other words any smartphone running GAPPS is evil. Solution: do not buy a smartphoneSolution : Get a huawei.
I also noted this. It'll install unwanted apps, their phones also allow hackers to peek from social apps.

Huge difference between Chinese phones.
Tier 1: Huawei, Xiaomi... moreWhat I said is an exemption for Huawei.
Xiaomi has been caught in browser and optical fingerprint sensor (K20 Pro & F2 Pro) privacy debacle.
I doubt the BBK brands.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2020Well, Samsung also had a spyware issue a while back but can you point out other instances that... moreThey should've just baked their ads into their software like Samsung instead of using malware. Maybe in China displaying ads in phone software isn't allowed?
Too many immature comments on this post.
Keep in mind if you are connected to internet then nothing is private..
Xiaomi used to do this to we they were small\new, I hope they don't do this anymore.
These companies need money, but they sell the phones cheap. Go figure. They had to make profits somewhow.
If you want no trackers, buy a phone from a very profit oriented company, where they have so much profit they won't bother to install trojans anymore
ManDeepest, 06 Dec 2020Yet another solid reason for me not to buy/trust Chinese branss. Samsung Fan Forever!😀Yet also, nobody asked you to do so

That has been proven wrong on more than one occasion, but I expected you to swallow them hook, line and sinker. Good thing you didn't disappoint.
Nothing in the world is free. If something is too good to be true, it means you are being profited unknowingly.
So many cheapskates android users, always looking for free and crack apk, same with those illegal media downloaders.. unknowningly opening their devices to malwares.
So better buy an iPhone, and have a piece of mind. Knowing the company only profit from your sales upfront. And no rubbish behind your back.
