In this connected world we live in, there is no absolute privacy. It really boils down to which companies/manufacturers you trust. You also need to make tradeoffs between convenience and privacy.

A dumb mobile phone will probably give you more privacy than smart phones but you would sacrifice convenience that you get with android phones or iphones.

I consciously sacrifice my privacy for convenience and support by using an iphone because let’s say I trust apple more than google. Of course this is all subjective. There’s also some android phone manufacturers that advertise privacy such as purism librem5. You could also install LineageOS instead of standard manufacturer android.
