After reading other reviews, I'm happy to see that I am not losing my mine entirely. I don't know what's happening over at Google, but innovation died somewhere. Programs are constantly running, installing, and uninstalling. Turning on permissions one after another. This has been one of the absolute worst experiences to date.

See I'm not the only one who've noticed how Google Play has taken over our phones and it's settings. The permissions they have, like redirecting phone calls and modifying our text messages and personal files to change them, is so wrong on so many levels. With monitoring everything we do and say, feels like we're being punished when they turn our WIFI on and off. Bluetooth on and off.

By default it will automatically download random apps that paid to be automatically installed. I found out that this stops when you disable automatic updates. Fortunately, but you need to dig for that setting because it isn't categorized right. When you get a budget phone, this app turns into some sort of cartoon villain bad guy that you have to defeat before you can use the phone normally. By the way, as I typed this the "tell us more" never loaded, so I guess I'll report that bug lol

I just found this update as a notif ultimatum in one of my old phones and I have to say; the only problem I have with it is not the power of extortion it gives Google, nope. It's the fact that it wasn't threatened, sorry "required", much earlier back when I tried using this old phone. Google is blocking users from connecting to its ad network, or "services", which is a great feature for Android to have. I'm sure the most egregious things are still happening in the bg but to a lesser extent.

Constantly starts services that have no need to be running. There is no easy way, if any, to find out what apps are starting and using these individual services and many have vague names with no online information as to what purpose each service has or how it supports your device. There have been times when no apps are open or running yet there are 27 different services running. Some are settings injector services which seems intrusive as well as the fact that the location service runs 24/7...

Well, they're services for Google Play. Not much to see here. It's really been a benefit for the Android operating system, since before that, it was a big cluster-mess. Only problem now is that some apps rely on it either too much or not enough. But that's a problem caused by developers, not Google. In short, great job. Now app updates can be performed, and OS updates can be installed with better ease than back in the old days, when phones only got a few updates during their lifetime.
