I was looking for software to sync my Oppo A15s and PC. So I got to a software named My Phone Explorer. Both my phone and PC are working smoothly and efficiently. There is no problem in syncing, but one fine day, I was just checking the file section of My Phone Explorer, in which I found a subsection named Applications.

In this application section, I found the list of all applications which are system applications as well as which I have installed from Play Store or by side loading. Now, the problem starts in this list: there are a few applications named "Athena", "green", "circular", "filled", and a few more; which I do not remember that I have installed. When I try to delete them, there is a failure notice.

My Phone Explorer can export these as .APK. When I googled them, mostly they were talking about Windows desktop malware. So, can anybody enlighten me on what these are, and if they are malware, how to remove them?

First and sixth application System specification

  • As you are talking about system apps, would you mind telling us what Android phone you use (system apps are device specific) and what Android version it runs? Also a screenshot showing the apps you mention would be good.

  • Otherwise, consider finding the package names and stating them here. App names are far from unique in Android.

  • Nevermind, I found a list of ColorOS 7 pre-packaged apps on XDA Forums which includes these apps.

When I checked on andriod debugg bridge with adb shell and then pm list packages with following output Partial output of command pm list packages

Now checking the list I come to know that Athena,green,circular,filled,black are system packages. Thanks to Andrew.T & Robert.
