    As usually products perform better on Android tests than on Windows. Only few don't score all points.

    I'm using Zemana's beta on mine, since it's a free lifetime license. Works well, no performance hit whatsoever, no battery hit either. I'm firmly in the "Android doesn't need an AV as long as you're not stupid and download warez/fake apps" camp, but since this isn't affecting me at all, I'll keep it around.

    That's cool. Guess I am getting old. :)

    Any issues with ESET? I used to use it, but got rid of it awhile back.

    Maybe I will check it out. I am in the same camp as you. I may wait however since I am running Android N DP5 preview on my Nexus 5x.

    Me too. The gender identity prerequisite is insensitive and supremist. :eek:

    Sophos continues to be at the top of the leader board with 100% scores, all-feature, no-ads, and FREE. Well, all-feature except for the SD/cloud backup.

    A superb solution from a UK developer with a decades-long globally acknowledge reputation.

    The only issues I have seen with ESET on Android was people that forgot their password and were locked out, but that is entirely user error and can happen with any product. I was using Norton and it was ok, but I didn't really feel it was needed and I got rid of it. I don't feel it is necessary for me personally. If you want to use something I don't think you can go worng with any of the major brands. I have seen good reviews of most of them. Better than the PC counterparts.

    Been using Eset on my Samsung S6 for almost a year now w/ no problems to speak of. I've tried most of the top tier AV out there and Eset has worked out the best for me.
