    McAfee pretty impressive since Intel bought it, and now it's free. Even does a boot scan.

    It does look good. The scans are really slow so I am trying out Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile and it seems to catch every test I give it, is really light on resources and scans really fast.

    I've been curious about this one. Anyone here using it? -https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cleanmaster.security-

    I've tested it and it seemed to be quite good. Worth a try.

    Doesn't say a lot about the high standards the testers claim to uphold. :rolleyes:

    They should have tested Malwarebytes. It seemed to work quite fine. And also many other candidates are missing: AVG, Lookout, Emsisoft, Bullguard, eScan, Trustport, Norman etc.

    They were a bit later this time. Two weeks ago this is what they told me:

    "We plan to publish the May/June 2014 Android test results at the beginning of next week. We have included several new products this time.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Marx"

    I have been using CM Security and find it to be very light and effective.

    Webroot works really well, light and effective. I am currently using CM Security and find it to be very light and it catches every test I have given it, unlike 360 or Eset.

    Also, Eset will not work on dual sim or rooted phones.
