Yes for PC but no for android. You may ask the reason some of them are ba detection rates, high Ram usage etc. I would recommend Trust Go its a free app which has scored pretty high in the benchmarks consumes low Ram and has great features.

Others you may like are ESET and Malwarebytes. Generally things that call home to alert new and unheard of running things are generally good. Virustotal app does just that while sharing the results of what you upload to all AVs which are a part of it's service.

Bitdefender for android is ok but I use lookout moble security and it works better than any other moble security
But android is based on linux and linux doesn't realy have many viruses written for is since most people use windows based software so I don't realy see why u would need antivirus for android

Linux is the most secure operating system available, Apple thinks to highly of itself, and Windows, well we've all been there...

Even Linux isn't immune to threats: http://www.welivesecurity.com/2014/0...of-linuxebury/

That said, you can't really compare Android to a Linux desktop distro.

there are a lot of good AV apps for Android. go to av-test(dot)org for a list of Av vendors who test well.

Sophos
ESET
Kaspersky
Anti-AVL
Avast

all of the above apps consistently get good av-test scores.

to toot my own horn quickly Armor for Android is an android ativirus that scored 98.2 on the Av-test which is very high. But our app Armor for Androi does not have a free AV service so if your looking for free youll have to go elsewhere. Armor for Android as well as all of the previously mentioned Av apps are all available on Google Play
