Does anyone have experience with Xiaomi phones? I was thinking of getting the Redmi 3s Prime mainly because of the large 4000mah battery, but then during my research I found out that MIUI now has a backdoor exploit. Is it really something to be worried about or 'much ado about nothing'?
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. :|
