    I've just purchased a POCO F1 for THB 10,000. Alternates were priced at THB 30,000 to 40,000 for near identical features. At the time it was rated No. 6 in the world. It's now No. 12.

    Wipe that fucker and put a custom ROM on it.

    In fact scratch that, they hardcode the exfiltrator.

    Just bin the fucking thing.

    I answered questions asked by two posters here #11 and #17 politely.

    I didn't define the question.

    That's already been reported, and the use of the word "already" should be a clue.

    Anyway, moving on to you being a silly chinky sycophant, have a look at where your new chinky phone is sending all of your data. All of it.

    The other sources aren't trying to spy.
    And if you don't think the chinkies are doing their level best to steal all and any secrets they can find the U.S. using all kinds of espionage at their disposal you need to get with the program.

    Your reply as usual makes no sense. ...could it be to obfuscate the fact you didn't read your own article?

    Here is timeline so you can catch up with yourself:

    1) You start a thread about phones
    2) People start talking about phones
    3) You go full retard and say the thread is not about phones
    4) I reply, quoting your OP directly showing the thread is about phones and asking you to clarify.
    5) You reply with the following non-sequitur: "That's already been reported, and the use of the word "already" should be a clue."

    Since we've apparently grasped the meaning of the word "already", let's see if we can get our little head around the word "now", shall we?

    And we'll throw in the word "networks" in the vague hope that you can stick your two vaguely functioning brain cells together and work out the difference between that and "phones".

    Well they do modify Android quite significantly but, like Xiaomi, they probably hide the real sniffers away somewhere offline so that they can't be erased by a Custom ROM.

    You left out the sentence before that from your OP:

    Already this year the US has banned government use of Huawei-made equipment and refuses to let retail stores on military bases sell Huawei handsets.
    So it appears the thread topic is about phones?

    No, it appears from what you quoted that the thread is about Huawei equipment. (Of which phones are a part)

    And it says that they have "already" told their own staff not to use Huawei phones, but "now" they are asking governments not to use Huawei networking equipment to build their 5G networks.

    What's the point with trying to explain plain English to thick people?

    As you well know they have concerns, as does anyone without their own development and production of any important items. They appear satisfied currently, as are the UK companies in the electronics/telecom arena. What they don't do is blindly obey the big handed man as Oceania countries do, so often.

    We have a thread, once again, suggesting one companies telecoms is worse that others and hence should not be allowed to be purchased and benefit the countries citizens and telecoms companies.

    The OP:

    A second post:

    Quote Originally Posted by David48atTD View Post

    The fact that both equipment and handsets (phones) are mentioned in the one or both, encourages posters to discus either or both. No puerile threats from some posters here should dissuade posters otherwise e.g. :

    Quote Originally Posted by Cujo View Post

    Are you stupid or are you just being difficult ?
    It would be useful if the posters here promoting the banning of a particular companies equipment and handsets, by posting such articles, could confirm how one particular company's equipment and handsets are demonstrably, allegedly, worse in terms of the any risks assessments, compared to any alternative company's equipment and handsets. If that was satisfactorily illustrated, the non technical amongst us might understand their issues.

    Currently it seems to be another pure racist outburst, again.
