now that they know to look at anything accessing the contacts app, it's pretty much dead in the water.
You would think so, except that has been a known bug for 4 years and Apple hasn't fixed it yet. Relying on that "closed system" for security rather than actually releasing secure software is just lazy.

This thread is addressing something that is effecting phones in the wild.
This thread is addressing something that is not fixable. If a manufacturer wants to put malware on a device at the factory, the only thing you can do to protect consumers is to warn them about it.

So these are those cheap, generic Chinese phones.
Or are they main stream brands like Samsung and LG?

The risk impacts Android’s Open-Source Project (AOSP), a lower-cost alternative to the full-fat version. AOSP is installed on lower-cost smartphones where cheaper software alternatives help keep prices down. This means owners of Android-badged devices from the likes of Samsung and Google itself are safe from this particular risk.
