I saw AVG and Lookout? Which one is better and if there are others better than these, can you suggest? I just got my GS3 yesterday and I'd like to protect it as early as now. Happy

I'm using Lookout Premium, haven't tried out AVG or other vendors... So far only 1 case reported by Lookout that a website was suspected of malicious content... Btw, you've to use the native web browser, not others like Dolphin...

But one general limitation I notice across all mobile security apps is that they do not scan/detect virus or malware in email attachments of Gmail or Yahoo Mail...

May not be the full scale of a PC virus but some malware have been reported in smart phones before, esp. Android phones. Just think of smartphone as a very small computer that can make phone calls and SMS... They still run on operating system that evil-spirited souls can exploit and write malicious codes. The possibility also applies to iPhone but just that Apple is very protective of it's eco-system so iPhone is much less likely to be infected.... This is an area I always think Google and the Android phone makers need to improve upon....

just wanna say that despite this little dissatisfaction in area of security, personally with an adventurous soul and not wanting to be restricted and dictated by Apple of what you can and should do, I'd still prefer an open system. So we just have to know what we're using and get the right protection gears on and we're fine...
