nanagdad, 15 Jan 2021No wonder their phones are cheap. Subsidized by the ccp. If something is so damn cheap, then y... morejust use feature phone then, oh wait doesn't your provider can sniff your data too, just use mail box then.
Its a good news as Chinese Govt were trying to hold full command in various sections in the World by controlling there homeland companies where they have to share each and every data's to their Govt whenever they ask which is a high security risk for other countries if they are using Chinese mobiles and there data's are storing in China not in there own country. . . Atleast some politician are thinking about there country whether they hate China or love own country whatever the case is, it's a good decision
trumpdum, 15 Jan 2021regarding Xiaomi, if you sniff the traffic you will see that even Google doesnt even come clos... moreexactly, a lot of people praising trump over this, which a lot of US tech companies are doing over these years collecting data without any reprecusions from the us government. Now
that Xiaomi is 3rd biggest mobile company and is about to enter the North american region and the ban was put before Trump would be out of power is kinda fishy to me.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2021The ban isn't what you think it is. It just bans Americans from investing in Xiaomi but I... moreThis is how it started with Huawei. Anyways all the stupidity will be reversed by the new administration.
You'd think that clown would be preoccupied with life as jail convict, but no his jealousy against Chinese knows no bounds
Good job President Trump, a bold decision indeed, I hope Google will remove all Google Apps from Xiaomi (including stiop providing updates to all current Xiiaomi phone) soon Xiaomi phone will not able to run YouTube, Chrome, Gmail, Play Store, next up no more Snapdragon, Mediattek, Exynos chips for Xiaomi, if Manu Kunar Jain date to step his foot on US or Canada soil, arrest him instantly, charge his for spying on behalf of CCP.
Hello Life, 15 Jan 2021getting fund for developing R&D by selling user data to government seems fair to you? I suppose you mean Samsung, or Apple, I can't imagine you don't complain because Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Google sell your information to "appropriate" companies, but that is not a violation of privacy, but a company does. China is "unethical" and "information theft"
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2021Good, stop producing disposable phones.If Chinese phones will be banned from using GMS, considering the huge market share of Chinese smartphone makers, it would be better if they will just unite and create a new application distribution store in replacement of GMS, rather than creating a new Operating System from scratch just like what Huawei is doing.
it is useless, USA is lost in translation, all big names are manufactured in china, so next step is China bans rotten Apple products, Do You think Android is irreplaceable? Its not hard to see that all brands will migrate to custom OS (Harmony OS perhaps)...Stupid decisions..

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2021They're the only good SoC maker?Good or not, doesn't matter. Qualcomm dominates the SoC market.
Even Samsung are forced to use Qualcomm in the U.S.A.
Because of NDA, we can't know how Qualcomm 'force' OEMs to buy their SoCs.
For example, OEMs maybe forced to buy mid-range SoCs if they want flagship SoCs.
So many ways for Qualcomm to donimate.
I remember when Intel used to do coerced OEMs.

Actually, 15 Jan 2021Apple already migrated almost everything from China under the Trump.No they did not, they haven't even started building factories in the US.
But hey believe what Trump says.
US is digging is own grave, isolating itself on the world market, protectionisme in overdrive, innovation at a standstill....... But hey it's the rest of the worlds fault
Only custom ROMs will save Xiaomi. Xiaomi will only be selling hardware going forward. They should now make their bootloader unlocking less tidious like oneplus, cut the waiting bs & account liking which give errors deliberately to keep you from unlocking your own phone so that they sell your data to the CCP 😂
