You can read about the lawsuit here:
If you read the article, it’s kind of scary.
“…the plaintiff’s counsel tested a new Samsung Galaxy S7 phone running Android, with a signed-in Google Account and default setting, and found that when left idle, without a Wi-Fi connection, the phone “sent and received 8.88 MB/day of data, with 94 per cent of those communications occurring between Google and the device.””
And there are billions of clueless people using this operating system!
No better word, this is sick:
"The device, stationary, with all apps closed, transferred data to Google about 16 times an hour, or about 389 times in 24 hours."
