    You need not abandon android.

    I suggest an open source rom form XDA. Thats the first thing i check before buying a phone. No rom, no phone

    I'll check into that. However, I have almost decided to buy a Purism phone when it's released.

    Just looked into purism.

    Thats some really expensive non-useful stuff right there.

    One phone has this issue. Abondon Android! ;)
    On a more serious note, what upsets me most about this is: no information towards the actual owners of the data they "by accident sent to China", no reparations for it, nothing.
    Nothing happens because there's no threat of being punished THAT's the real issue. If GDPR would only have some teeth, fines with that are a joke. Most breaches of GDPR are done by the government in Austria anyways...
