    Sophos is a remarkable android AV. This test affirms that. I have some unused Bullguard licenses, I should try their Android AV, maybe find a use for those licenses I will likely never use.

    Webroot utterly failed that test.

    Pointing out WSA was the third poorest performing product in the world on Android. How is pointing out facts trolling?

    Don't see what's so remarkable about Webroot Android that needs to be pointed out... Except maybe being one of the 3 popular ones that failed.

    That's basically it. It's one of the only big name, popular ones to fail.

    if you're going to accuse folk of trolling because you're chosen product does badly and is pointed out you really need to see your GP perhaps he can remove the chip from your shoulder,put it in perspective,its a an AV product not your wife or one of your kids that has been criticised,or DO you class it as "your baby"?

    Your're long enough at wilders so you must know the game. ;)
    - If you say anything against a webroot product you are a troll and don't understand how it works ;)
    - If a test shows bad results, than it's always the testers fault becuase the products of webroot are unique.
    ...
    This are the known aggressive marketing practics that are known since Prevx times.

    More AV drama. Still don't understand how/why people get so hostile towards, or defensive of a program.

    Agreed. I don't even run anything on my Android phones. I find that most of them just cause wakelocks which in turn kill the battery. Don't really think its needed to be honest.
