    First time hearing this, but it might be something carrier specific if you got a carrier specific version of said phone.

    Now I have noticed 8 Operator Plugins and I also have found that a lot of the operating apps have "overlay" and ideas

    Here's just a few overlay apps there's more and all are important operational apps. Can this be someone attempting to hack or highjack my phone?

    Well, I think your phone might have been pre-loaded with overlay malware (like this: https://www.nowsecure.com/blog/2017/...ow-permission/ )

    I checked the link you provided and Its scary stuff. Im trying to find a way of telling whether the apps I have overlays on are harmful or normal. Could you help point me in the right direction or do you know of a app I can use to scan for harmful overlays or something. Thanks for your help I greatly appreciate it

    Well, these built in ones you cannot exactly entirely erase short of going through the geeky (and VERY risky) process of obtaining root access. Most Anti-Virus and anti-malware scanners are garbage and actually bog down and spy on your device, but Kaspersky Internet Security is definitely legit and uses next to no system resources (this last point I'd important since you have a low-end phone). Also, in the Google Play app, make sure you have Play Protect enabled and force a manual system scan if you want to.
