    I knew CM from the Android 4 era and never heard a good thing about them.

    Well, I still contend CM puts out some pretty good, quality software, it's just that it screws them up with this telemetry crap. Kind of like taking a bite out of a really nice apple and looking down to see half a worm squirming around in the part you just bit off.

    Indeed. However they will be back with no issues as all western company's are scared of the Chinese and the influence they can inflict.
