So then you wouldn't buy phones from an OEM that modified Android to force you to Bing and prevents installing Google Search, makes you use a version of Mapquest from 1999 and takes your data and sells it to the mob.

There'd be other OEMs that would default search to Bing because Microsoft pays them but allow you to switch that to Google or DuckDuckGo if you wish, and offer an option where you pay a little more in exchange for a promise not to collect any of your data.
