      Chinese spying conspiracies.

        "Chinese spying conspiracies", yeah it is now trendy to blame Chinese and Russians :)

        Spying ….don't forget that if you have Google maps on any mobile phone your'e being tracked , it's a bit like that old Police song ' every move you make , every breath you take I'll be watching you" .

          I’m not advocating the people stating this.

        •  

          You mean, if you browser the internet you are being tracked. Google/Facebook don't need you to open apps to know where you are, what you like, who your friends are etc etc. They get all this from tracking your web browsing.

        Wouldn't exactly call it a conspiracy. It's very real, generally speaking, but if Huawei does it or the average consumer cares is a different story.

        The Chinese phone, which sells for between $90 and $110, was sending call logs, browser history and location data behind users' backs.

        (haha apologies for resorting to quoting CNET!!)

        Personally I find it sufficiently distasteful with how much data Google already mines…and there are plenty of other alternatives to Huawei , so I go with them.

          I understand any one can access data . Remember the big fuss about NSA collecting data from webcams and Xbox Kinect etc. and this is an American agency. To be honest in a connected world no one should be trusted. However Huawei is taking a beating and I think American companies are just as bad as them yet no one is making a complaint. That’s just me.

          That's not evidence that Huawei bugs equipment or devices. In fact it had nothing to do with Huawei at all so you just grabbed that to confirm your own beliefs without reading it.

          You're spreading conspiracy theories created by US intelligence and spread by the mainstream media.

          Propaganda successful.

            @Diji1: Haha you're atrocious Diji! You just like to incite people don't you =p

            Can YOU read? I clearly said it doesn't apply to Huawei.

            but if Huawei does it

            Beyond that, I really don't have the time or the crayons to explain to you what I was saying.

              @incipient:

              Wouldn't exactly call it a conspiracy. It's very real,

              @Diji1 has a point! I read this as: Huawei's spying for China is very real.

              generally speaking, but if Huawei does it or the average consumer cares is a different story.

              this is conflicting to the first half, or not?

              The story has nothing to do about Huawei but you replied to the discussion about Huawei.
              but why spy people who bought phones between $90 and $110? more for commercial gains I'd think. It's the national security threat from Huawei as US claims we've been talking about.

              Here's my crayon anyway.

            @Diji1: Cherry picked a quote too, the bulk of the article was talking about Blu handsets. Blu, the American company based in Miami.

        Good lord - it's not a conspiracy. You cannot run medium to large companies in China without Communist Party officials being present on the company board. Employees are required to cooperate with state intelligence agencies under any circumstance if requested. It's true that the United States does similar activities with Prism (NSA & FBI) and while both are abhorrent, having the United States spy on you is the lesser of evil. One country is using the data to maintain their hegemony and is aligned to our interests, while the other is a brutal dictatorship that will slaughter people in the streets at the hint of dissent.

        Either way, it's ultimately the choice of the individual as to who they decide can spy upon them. If you're not some skilless worker doing menial work, you should keep in mind that Huawei phones are banned at some Government agencies and private companies due to privacy / intellectual theft concerns, and bringing in Huawei phones to other organisations can catch attention. Prism is many things - but they won't be backdooring into your phone in an attempt to steal the intellectual property of the company you work for. The Chinese government would gladly do so though.

        The totalitarian regime apologists (or the silly individuals who jump on board with them simply because "America bad11!11 What about dem!") are free to downvote myself as necessary. Oh, I also suppose you don't need to worry if your career doesn't extend beyond being a Coles checkout clerk either…

          'Either way, it's ultimately the choice of the individual as to who they decide can spy upon them' is absolute shite.

          Just how do you think people get a choice when even the undersea cables are tapped by the yanks?

          United States spy on you is the lesser of evil.

          lesser evil is not evil but a hero?

          One country is using the data to maintain their hegemony and is aligned to our interests, while the other is a brutal dictatorship that will slaughter people in the streets at the hint of dissent.

          tell that to the people's family who were gun down in the streets at the hint of dissent. how many people were gun down in US a year? more than terrorist done

          Not sure what 'menial workers' or people who choose to work at Coles have to do with your opinions about Huawei, but glad you got to express how you think you're better than them.

          Watch Gary Explains channel on Youtube. He captured outgoing packets from phones including a flagship Huawei phone. Conclusion is the packet is directed to legitimate servers, mostly own by Google.

      I have the iPhone and it surprises me a lot of times that the ADs on web pages show exactly what my friends and I talked about few hours ago in general chat…

    •  

      I reckon there should be a Huawei conspiracy discussion page so every time a Huawei deal comes up, place the link to direct all discussions regarding conspiracy, privacy etc there so we can focus on the deal on the ACTUAL deal page.

    reckon those with concerns should fly on those boeings that the yanks reckon are safe = wait you can't anymore here but why is that? We usually regurgitate whatever the yanks tell us to say about companies that they really want to squash. oh yeah boeing is one of theirs….

    For job hifi plan, can add $10 international call pack or not?

    Wish it is mate 20 pro at least. P30 (pro) is couple of weeks away.

  •  

    it was a great deal when the plan was $55 few month ago. But no longer now even it drops to $55/month.

    Now Xiaomi 9 and Vivo Iqoo are the better options with all the specs overtakes mate series.

    And also, significantly more bang for your buck!

    • +1 vote

      Iqoo and Xiaomi are about equal or lesser in every spec (you can pay more for extra ram/storage). But neither hold a candle to mate 20 pro cameras, despite the Xiaomi having a higher MP count. It’s the same Sony IMX586 sensor in phones like the Honor View20, so at full MP they're grainy as anything. Cost is attractive though, if you can forgo the amazing screen and cameras.

    •  

      They are great value, but you can't compare to mate 20 pro lol.

    Where does it mention the free phone? Can't find it on the link

    EDIT: Found it

    Are they both dual sim?

    I got it on the $55 deal last time. Phone seems decent, though screen not as good as Samsung. The camera takes good photos, but the AI usually causes more grieve than anything exaggerating white balance or contrast. Battery life is awesome. Performance is very good. But dealing with Telstra is a nightmare. 3 support requests later, they still are unable to switch off my voicemail, and each time they try they turn on "international day pass" on by mistake. I also get charged for 1kb data roaming requests while my data roaming and mobile data are off (only a few cents, but still).

    With the cost of mobile phone subscriptions dropping, $65 may be a bit much unless you actually need 80GB.

    International callpack is not available with this plan

  •  

    Any issues on reselling the phone? Is it going to be locked to telstra. Keen on the plan but not so much the phone
