    For smart phone users running on Android, do you really need an antivirus or do you think it is overkill? I am not one of those people who surfs on pr0n sites or sites with crack or those sorta things, I rarely browse and if I do it would be forums or reading some computer articles on some online magazine

    I don't want to slow down my Galaxy S3 or have its battery suffer (it's crap as it is anyway), but if you think it is really necessary pls advise so I can install avast free antivirus on my S3

    Bear in mind, that Android runs on the Linux Kernel
