Default Best Android Security Solution

Hey guys,

So I'm looking for a decent security solution for my phone (oneplus one but this wouldn't be device specific of course) - something similar to cerberus. Which would you consider the best and most rugged (i.e. most protected from being removed from the system?)

I am aware of cerberus' feature to integrate itself with the ROM and move itself to the system partition to prevent removal on factory wipe - however surely the thief could just install a custom recovery and wipe system partition?

There's also android device manager - how does this compare?

Thanks!

To install custom recovery the thief will have to turn the device on. He'll get caught then.

Cereberus is the all round solution, the only way to tackle it is flash a new firmware via unlocking the bootloader. So IMHO you're unsafe only if the bootloader is unlocked.
