The A505G comes with Android 9 Pie installed (running March 1 security patch level as of writing) and uses Samsung's "One UI" interface. ... This is a very clean and straight-forward interface, though it's a bit limited compared to stock Android. ... It also includes multiple Samsung applications as well as their app and themes store which, again, can’t be removed.  ...  "
