    Looks like OnePlus has been collecting non-anonymized data from its customers.
    OnePlus is collecting your private data without permission

    Wow, not cool, I know privacy is a figment of our imagination in 2017, but for a company to be so bold like that, I'm definitely turned off.

    Yeah, I think OnePlus' reputation has just gone down the crapper for me permanently.

    For a hundred or so more, I rather get the Pixel 2.

    It definitely has for me. The way they handled Secure Box triggered me to start selling off my OP5, and when this one popped up, I was glad I had nothing to do with the phone anymore. Never again, no matter what the spec sheet says.

    I guess this is what subsidises OnePlus devices. Nothing more valuable than consumer data.

    @Michaelgtrusa has been trying to warn for some time now about some of these Chinese phone manufacturers going overboard on the data collection, but it’s a difficult conversation to have without getting accused of nationalism or some other -ism that does not exist. It’s about security, both individual and yes, partly national.
