Seriously speaking for Andriod devices you don't need antivirus at all. All the apps in Paly store are virus free and besides these Antiviruses kills a lot of battery.. I personally don't use them.

Re: Best antivirus for Sony xperia P

dude unless u buy to many third party apps the chances of virus are almost nil !! all antivirus can cause ur phone to behave erraneously and might lower ur battery life !! however if u insist on an anti virus i guess avast is a safe bet as it provides many features includign anti theft and is also highly rated one !i personally would nt prefer installing a anti virus though

As you can read above, mcafee and other antivirus create a LOT of issues, just like taskillers, not to mention that they drain your battery and have access to your personal data.

Of the 41 products, only seven scanners, from Avast, F-Secure, Lookout, Kaspersky, Ikarus, Dr. Web and Zoner, detected more than 90 percent of Android malware. Taking these products as well as those from the second tier, AV-Test said "you can trustfully choose from at least 17 products to protect your Android device."

i have picked this from the link u have posted.i think u have the answer....
