Default Suspected spyware builtin in Alcatel Android Smartphones

Hello,

I just purchased an Alcatel one touch snap 7025x Android 4.2 Smartphone.

I noticed a chinese process in the process log that got major permissions to just do anything in the phone.

Attached is the image as I need someone who reads chinese to translate the word and it's meaning as I have no clue what does it mean?

I fear that it is a spying software been injected by the company Alcatel-TCL to spy on the users.

Please provide feedback on the case and if the process exists on other phones.

Hello. I have the same phone and the same process running as you do.


After an painfull search i have found that it has something to do with battery charging mode. And the reason why it has so many permissions is that due to performance, that process is run together with a bunch of other core processes. (you can check this by acessing the process detail on your phone).

Here what i have found, translation wise. Hope it helps
