true or not, google and other companies have been taking our data for years now, nothing new.
it's good that Hugo addressed this, as this had been blown up seriously in media

If the data from our Xiaomi phones is getting transmitted to govt bodies in China then the same risk is possible with other phone manufacturers like Intex (Cloud series), LG, etc.

Similarly, if we use Google Drive or Skydrive or Dropbox etc then we face the same potential risk !! Even by simply using Google Location Access like Google Chrome, Goggle Maps, etc your location and movement data is known to Google as a company. So they are already spying on you when you use an Android device (please don't take this literally)

I personally believe that this is a vendetta against Xiaomi by other cell phone manufacturers as Xiaomi is steadily climbing the ladder to #1 phone manufacturer.

To find out if data is getting transmitted to unknown servers there are several apps on Playstore that track data movement from the phone and can be installed to monitor or stop such activity. My final verdict on this is that there is nothing to worry about -- besides what the is the Chinese government going to do with so much data ? No sensible person is going to store private information on their phones like credit card details, personal banking details etc.

So why make this such a big hue-cry ??

absolutely agree, no need to get your panties twisted.
if you want absolute security, go back to a dumb-phone and stop using the internet.
otherwise, your data IS going to end up somewhere and i'd personally be more scared of the NSA then XIAOMI....

Precisely.
There's just about too much overreaction from a lot of "concerned" parties...
Why am I not surprised that some of these concerned parties actually hail from rival phone makers..

Kudos to Hugo for clearing the air.
