A relative picked picked up a 'Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9006' on his trip to China.
It was misbehaving so I did a reset. When it booted I noticed a few Chinese icons on the Home screen. Opening them takes me to a bunch of Chinese porn sites!
I removed the icons and an app called ChatOn but now I have 4 new Chinese apps that have been downloaded and started automatically!
When I Stop and Disable them they come back.
So what do I do? I don't trust the device as it is. What are my choices?
Root it and try to clean it that way? I don't even know how they are being downloaded. Can I trust the factory ROM at all?
Install a different ROM on it?
