Foreigners are not even allowed to look their sdks

Or: How to pay to have the CCP spy on you. Only people who label things outside of their limited understanding "conspiracy theories" would actually buy one of these phones, thinking it was just that.

Google needs some competition. It's too much of a monopoly.

I couldn’t use it cuz of my social credit score. I tried but they told me that I need to stop reading The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers, they were kind and said “You can finish reading page 255”.

Most people distrust GAFA as much as they do Beijing, and assume that their own government is spying on them.

Enforced use of Google apps is a memory hogging, endlessly updating pain on Android. Google services are available from any browser on any smartphone.

All the US have done is forced a competitor to innovate faster. It will be interesting to see how it works.

Mostly. Except Apple. Because Apple respects people's privacy.

Apple are a US corporate and obey US national security laws, with all that that entails.

As for privacy, I guess it depends upon whom you don't want to be tracked by.

Any system with a US OS is reasonably easy pickings for the NSA and by extension the governments of Western nations. That includes systems in China-allied nations. The USG's anti-Huawei crusade has undermined that highly useful 'access', speeding up the roll-out of a China-centric family of OSs that will be a bit harder for the NSA to productively explore, giving Chinese-allied users more privacy from Uncle Sam.

I'm sure NSA spooks would have much preferred everyone to still be using US-based systems.

Sure, they will comply with US laws and police investigations where appropriate. What they won't do is provide a back door to their OS's, as history has demonstrated.

Yeah, except if it is encrypted.
