    Use it like it. Over the years on many different cell phones I've used Lookout, Roboscan (other name), Dr. Web, BitDefender Free & others. When they get bloated, intrusive, payware or ineffective I change. And right now I've read Sophos protects Android the best. By default I think it only scans apps so I selected all files.

    Is it light on battery?

    Can you guys test Realtime protection & see if it detects properly or little late?
    And also if it cleans/removes proeprly?

    I tested with AMTSO Android test. It detected apk & deleted. But the apk still remains in Downloads?

    And can you test if the apk is downloaded with any downloaders & opened with any file explorers, Sophos detects & cleans properly or not?

    It is very fast at detecting and killing stuff and is light on battery use.
