    the only thing I'm thinking when I see this is that you don't want your data collected so you can continue doing the shady things on your phone without having your data collected

    I would like to understand why OnePlus supports this bloatware, Zen mode.

    What do you mean by "shady things"? According to you, is privacy only about doing "shady things"?

    Guys, stop this "bloatware" nonsense. A feature YOU don't need isn't necessarily a bloatware. This term is being overused and given more importance than what it deserves.

    If we tolerate bloatware applications, we buy Samsung. Bixby is more interesting than Zen mode.

    Bixby is a sin against mankind. It's inferior to Google Assistant in every way and integrates itself with the OS in an awful way that makes it hell to get rid of. Hell, they gave it its own dedicated button on the S9 that you couldn't remap until very recently.

    Zen Mode you won't even notice if you get rid of the quick settings tile

    I'm sure you can think about a lot of shady things one can do and find on the internet.
    According to me, privacy is an ancient term that we who were born in the digital era will never truly understand so why try and fight it when they will always find another way to get your personal data?
    and besides, the only thing they do with your data is cater adds that might be of interest to you
    if you don't want to be "spied on" then fake your death and live like they did back in 1910, there, solved your problem

    You will not sign .. you did not even give me like :) The idea was why to have bloatware on OOS? I can stay without a phone as much as I want, there is no need for a pre-installed application to warn me or restrict my access.

    Now you should notice that they are upgrading their insult tactics. and they will keep going upper levels until we 1) either stop exposing things to public,
    2) or we get angry and react with some slang insults, which will be their valid reason to lock this thread.

    This is true.
    And technically features like Zen Mode are not supposed to check for updates. The OP system update does that in total.

    And basically yes, its just a story to make us feel updated. And push things in background.

    Please let me know, whether you are receiving any community notifications of this thread since 4 days.

    Thank you

    One of the reasons Samsung invested in that technology is to provide itself an alternative if the US does something against the company like it did with Huawei.

    I uninstalled the community app because it refused to work without storage permissions, and I refused to give it a permission that it doesn't need or deserve.
