suspect app on sumsung tablet

I just read an article about apps loaded with malware on google play and how to spot them. It says in setting go to apps list and look for any app name with the android logo on it but it does not say if it means the little green figure or just the head shape.

I have found 2 , the Samsung time zone app , I know its genuine because I put the name in play store and it said open not download.

The one I am confused about is one called airtel , it has the little robot head at the side of it as suggested in the article. If I click on it for details I can only disable or force stop but not uninstall.

I am not sure if it is genuine because I typed the name in google play and it offered it as a download but my apps list say I have it. ???

Just in case you think your immune to fakes , a few months ago I unknowingly downloaded a fake qr code reader and after that , every app I tried to get from my account library hit me with " not compatible with your set up ". A quick reboot sorted everything.
