I remember a couple of years ago, Xiaomi pulled a similar stunt, they were sending texts and photos back to China without the user knowing about and denied that it was happening until a computer security firm stepped in with proof, so I really do not know if Xiaomi can be trusted.

 

To be honest I would be wary of any Chinese companies unless you could flash a custom firmware that completely wipes the original firmware. :|

Thanks, I had not thought of custom firmware (I am very much an Android novice), I will look into that.
