There's always been a give debate on this on other forums. Once in a while ill install one and run a virus check but other than that in my personal opinion I dont think their all that necessary.

When I got my phone, there was a lady there saying she was having problems with this.  But the guy working there said there are no known problems with virus's or spyware that are known of, and he works at AT&T.  I had one on my phone, but uninstalled it.  No problems so far.

I depends on what you browse and download. If your depending on Google play to download apps then you don't need it. If your looking for cracked apps and you don't have set websites that you go to then I would get one.

If you use your phone to do quick Google search and view your few favorite websites you shouldn't need one but if your going to visit random websites where you know you will find shady content get an anti virus.

As for which one to get I wouldn't know since I don't use any personally.

I personally have one (Lookout) because i do a massive amount of downloading especially torrents. Rather safe than sorry. Besides the s3 is more than capable of handling & running an antivirus in the background in my opinion   Happy

Yes but do you download torrents? If you only really use Google play apps then no you probably don't need one... but for people that source apk's from torrents for example, it's probably best to have one
