I'm wondering if it's possible to turn off all this AI stuff they have put in the phone? I'm not really interested in using it or having it running in the background, collecting my data. I have real privacy concerns. Does anybody know. I pro-ordered, but am thinking about canceling the order...

I am aware of the ongoing invasion of our privacy. Currently there are steps you can take to protect yourself (to some extent.) I imagine that will get a lot more difficult once AI is running our entire device for us.

The steps include to disable the microphone, permanently, and keep the phone offline, including GSM. Even normal GSM coverage collects information.

Yes, I know that, but part of this AI will be uploading your stuff to the cloud to be used by AI engines. Different than the standard data collection. I don't like that part

You can turn off the AI generated content that is processed in the cloud. Some of it is done on device by the Snapdragon SOC. As far as I know you can't turn that off.

If you are so concerned about privacy, the last thing you want in your life is a smartphone!

Yes, we all have the illusion of privacy. But I tweak and/or turn off settings to minimize the intrusion
