    I've read about the Android P new features. If you care about your privacy you will find it sickening.
    A new way to pinpoint your location within 2 meters by pinging nearby wifi access points.
    A biometric fingerprint scanner.
    Both the front and back cameras will support streaming video at the same time.
    Put all that together and what have you got other than the ultimate spying device that will know who you are, where you are and be able to watch and listen to everything you do and everything and everyone around you. Literally.
    Hopefully no one is delusional enough to believe all that will not secretly be accessable remotely or that this technology won't be used as an aid to assassinating people.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Like I said before, I consider smartphones to be insecure by design, and would never do any important stuff with it.
