Already a bit concerned as most of the apps I want to use like google maps require quite a lot of permissions like needing phone and contact information and record audio etc.

I think the source of this concern comes from political wrangling with in the Australian gov. Basically, Huawei (which is a huge telecom) was bidding to source the equipment for a rollout of a nation wide broadband system, but some one has claimed that Huawei has security issues within the company, so one political party wanted them dropped from the bid. I couldn't understand the whole article, and I may have this slightly wrong, but the more I read what was written the more it seemed like is was all about two political parties having a go at each other with Huawei in the middle.
Whether, it is a real concern or not, I can't tell. But, one thing you can do to help protect your phone is to get the LBE Security app. With it you can set individual permissions. It not a "cure all" but it helps.
