    malwarebytes set to scan downloads and on database update.
    It was recommended on here by someone who tested it against in the wild threats and it did well.

    No, I don't use any AV, AM or anything similar. I don't use internet much and also don't install many apps. IMO I don't need it considering how I use it.

    I use Malwarebytes and Bitdefender Anti-Theft, BD mainly as I can use the alert call to find the thing and save me looking everywhere where I didn't leave it (need one on my car keys as well). :)

    Clean Master, cause it was built-in so why not? Don't really notice a performance difference.

    I use Eset Mobile Security premium. (Paid)
    There is a free version also.
    On a side note, Eset Premium is on sale for one week only, 50% off, on Google Play.

    I personally don't use any AV in my Android. As for the reference of forum members preferences, poll~ ^_^

    Good question. After leaving my LG G3 phone up for a week and then using the 'settings-battery' function, Android shows Avast using less than 1% of the battery.
