wrt location tracking... you can turn that off. I found it annoying (eg leaving a store and getting a "rate your shopping experience" message), and I disable that stuff now... I don't store photos in the cloud, etc... but you are right, owning one means giving up some privacy.
Like it or not, smartphones (dumbphones?) are becoming increasingly integrated into daily life. There are benefits, and definitely drawbacks also. I'm younger, but I was fairly resistant to get one... but at this point, many things I do require it. I've noticed now that even some things that have web interfaces have features only available through the phone app versions (sometimes required features!)... so it is not getting better!
One real upside is if I have a roadside problem with one of my saabs, I can quickly scan codes, load up tsn on my phone, search up the code and have it diagnosed in minutes, and possibly back on the road shortly thereafter. Definitely has avoided a number of CAA (AAA) calls.
Pros and cons...
