    Hm, are my eyes playing tricks on me or there is no DrWeb listed for this test?

    Sounds like Dr. Web didn't pay the bill or withdrawn from the test :)

    I have the pay version of Zoner. AVG UI looked a lot like Zoner before they changed it. Oh well.:eek:

    It's good to see it continuing to do so well, I love how quickly it scans.

    Seems like Android "malware" is under control as of now, well at least according to this test. :D
    Good job for all of them!

    It never was out of control as long as you stick to Google Play.

    No Android AV has 0 battery impact. No matter what this report says.

    You are right. When I say "0" I mean almost none. I am speaking from experience as I tested many other mobile security programs. And this is their explanation :
    "Instead of downloading and storing virus signatures directly to Android devices, Antivirus Free uses in-the-cloud services to check online for the latest safeguards to outbreaks. This not only results in super-fast scans, but in close to zero impact on battery life and device performance."

    I may switch from Dr.Web to Avast in the near future. Avast seems to do well in AV Tests and has lots of features. I would like to have seen the performance of Dr.Web in these tests.
