Came here looking to see if I should upgrade from my Galaxy S5 to this. And all I see are idiots arguing about whether they're better off surrendering their data to the US or the Chinese gov't and whether Taiwan is part of China.

Asus isn't a Chinese company.

No idea. I tend not to believe in conspiracy theories, even though ironically it sounds like the FBI has a conspiracy theory of its own. Still, I don't think the FBI would put out such a bold statement if it didn't have some merit to it.

If the FBI does in fact have another agenda, my guess would be that it wants consumers to stick to phones that have the US spyware on them. But I thought the NSA was the agency heading that up.

Main difference seems to be physical size. The 10-percent larger battery in the Huawei might sway me but I don't think I'd want a phone that big.

Some of the GSMArena specs don't match those on the website; reader beware.

I've been nothing but disappointed with any Huawei I've experienced. Business rep and store manager for at&t. Even though the spec nicely, their lesser parts are poor quality. Microphone, speaker issues, etc. Software issues, messaging and others put them at the bottom of the list for most industry experts. Even the flagship Nexus 6p was riddled with problems and was one of the best designed phones ever made. My vote is Asus all day

Can you even guess why? What proof do they have? If it was that serious, why don't they just stop it from being imported altogether?

I totally agree that Chinese manufacturers sell crap for the most time, but it's for you to decide if the price you pay is worth the product you are getting. If a $300 phone is $150, and the specs are in line with other $300 phones, I see no reason not to buy it, Chinese, Korean, no matter where. With all the crap people install on their phones these days, it really doesn't matter.

Yep, "what is search": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asus
it's actually not that simple.

Taiwan is and isn't independent at the same time, which is why I stated the FBI never mentioned ASUS

Yup. Years ago, there was warning from CIA director about it. Look at this article 2/14

Chinese designers include software on their phones that sends your information to China, just as American designers include software that sends your information to the US. In both cases, that information is probably captured by the respective governments.
Taiwanese designers, regardless of whether they're "Chinese," do not include software on their phones that sends your information to China.
