I just bought a second hand phone (my first device running android). I'm surprised by the fact that three times I've been asked for permission to make and manage phone calls. This is a very scary thing to allow and it's even for things that don't seem to need it. I first noticed it when I wanted to run Diagnostics. It asks to Allow Support to make and manage phone calls. This is already strange but perhaps could be justified in the process of running diagnostics. But I tried some other things to check the permissions that they would ask and also the pre-installed Xperia File Transfer Mobile and even the FM radio ask for it. All of these are pre-installed and system apps.
Is this normal? Would you give these permissions? Or is there something wrong with the phone (malware?)?
(For now there is no sim in the phone so the damage that it can do is very limited.)
I already did a factory reset and the issue persists.
