Anon, 05 Oct 2019Hilarious rant considering American made phones are on there.Does it matter where they are made, the final product is what everyone gives a s**t about, and on that matter, Chinese products were never even considered to be the best in class.
There's a reason why many Chinese phones just remain in China and never get released in other countries.
Android and iOS, the two best OS for mobile today, are made by European people.
Is there any popular OS that's made by Chinese industries?

It's only rare that my phone (Redmi Note 5) gets listed on some chart, yet it's the absolute WORST one that I really hate....

SMH should've never trusted Xiaomi phones right from the very start :///
Next phone will be a Sony Xperia phone with the most stable OS and quite regular updates.
Doesn't matter if I'd have to pay twice the price for the same hardware if it means I won't have to deal with fckn ads and buggy software with so much restrictions and low class quality microphones.
Oh, and have I mentioned how it's more than 6 months already since I received a MIUI update and until now, still hasn't received even a small one?
Many reviews promises regular updates within 3 months for all Xiaomi phones for 4 YEARS and my phone's not even 3 years old.....

No wonder why Chinese products are banned in the US
They are trying to be the best by selling copycat technologies at half the price, all without the original creators' consent about them.

I am a realme phone user and realme didn't even exist back in 2017 so I can assume that my phone is safe...lol

According to the source, the devices are vulnerable if they run Android Oreo, unless stated otherwise. Since the S8 and S9 run Pie, they shouldn't be vulnerable?

This is exactly why plain Android is better. But Pixel 2 tho. That's perplexing.

For once, Project Zero spared iOS! :)

The list is not exhaustive though. It's just a list of devices Google tested and found vulnerable
