Is Huawei Mate 10 The Only Smartphone Likely To Be Spying On Us?

I somehow do NOT think so. No I am not paranoid, but as somebody who was in the computer industry for 40-years I am just realistic. 7-8 years ago it was the new ‘smart’ photo frames with USB connections. They were said to be riddled with viruses.

I have long maintained that our ‘antivirus’ programs — including Avast that I (alas) still use — are the worst of Trojan Horses, sitting in our computers keeping track of everything we do.

The issue with Huawei is their supposed ties to the Chinese government.

But, Huawei is NOT the only attractive, mainstream smartphone manufacturer in China. There is also, at a minimum, OnePlus.

I had spent a long time in early December 2017 looking at Huawei and OnePlus phones since they have very compelling camera offering.

In the end, however, I got a Google Pixel 2 because of the SOFTWARE — developed by Google. Google already spies on me so why not let them extend the means by which they do so. Seriously. I can’t stop Google spying on me, so I might as well just keep the number of folks spying on me to a minimum.
