    I have an Alcatel Apprise, and I've tried downloading several apps that require draw over apps, but my phone says draw over apps is disabled because it slows down my phone. Is there a way to override this?

    Go to settings>apps>3 dots upper right corner tap >tap special access >over the top or draw over you will see there and just toggle which apps you want

    Welcome to Android Central! It might have to do with the phone being Android Go (which is much more lightweight than the standard Android OS, and is intended for budget phones with very underpowered specs).

    Android 10 Go Edition doesn't allow Draw Over Other Apps permission for apps that didn't have it already enabled in previous versions.

    It says "Google does not support pasting images"
    But I don't have that "appear on top"

    That phone runs Android 10 Go Edition and the 'Draw over other apps' / 'Appear on Top' permission is disabled.

    Unfortunately you can't, that's one of the Android Go limitations. Maybe there are some tricks if you root the phone but I'm not sure.
