OP is talking about "all permissions", not just camera permission

So am i. Im just using an immediate example and providing what would be 'reasonable' for an app to ask for and what would not.

If those permissions are activated but not used, I put that on shitty devs doing shit, if there are actually lines calling home in order to exploit them for shitty reasons that's a different story, but then I guess google would remove those apps, since it's only not evil when they do it

Those camera applications can very well be the Nth copy paste of the same shitty tuto, with all permissions granted "look ama greet greet programeeer!"

Can also be the same standard manifest re used for all projects, with all permission granted so you don't bother dealing with it
