Interesting conversation about the past news of Xiaomi’s data breach and what it means to cell phone secuirty. There are very good comments about China’s telecoms, the NSA and other issues.

Excerpt
Huawei and now Xiaomi are sending user data to Chinese servers which are of course linked to the Chinese Communist Party, or even worse, hacking, identity theft, credit card theft, etc the list goes on. I also wouldn’t trust any other Chinese companies like Lenovo.

Huawei and Xiaomi are rising as big players in the smartphone market. Huawei, for example, ranked 3rd in Q2 2014 smartphone shipments behind Samsung and Apple. And some Americans seem to have been buying their products (uh oh).

IMO people should stick to Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, etc… companies that can be trusted. Chinese companies can not be trusted (yet). It will take a long time, possibly decades, for Chinese companies to be free from their puppet strings organized by the Chinese government.
