    I'm using the trial version for Android and I cannot tell if real-time scanning is running at all. Apparently it only logs threats detected; not the fact that it looked for threats. Maybe I'm spoiled by my PC ESET NOD 32 but isn't there a way to tell the mobile version to log real-time scans like it logs the on-demand scans?

    I understand capacity constraints and all that but a small log would at least let me know that it is working. Before I purchase I need to be confident that my AV software is doing the job.

    You're correct that real-time scanning only logs detected threats but not activity. That’s by design on all of our products with the thought of not interrupting you from regular activities if there isn’t an immediate danger. However, we will take this into the consideration for the future versions. ESET Mobile Security does scan all applications from Google Play as well as any files downloaded from web or email.
