AV-Comparatives Android Test

This looks like a reasonably comprehensive and informative test of Android security products. The test, from AV-Comparatives, used ‘the top 1,000 most common Android malware threats of 2016’.

Android Security Test 2017 – 100+ Apps tested

Lots of mainstream products scored 100% (as they should in a test like this), and others scored near to that. So this isn’t going to tell you which of those products you should be using. (Which is fine by me: I’m not sure that the ‘editors pick’ snapshot choice between several products that are approximately level  in performance, though beloved of magazine reviews, is generally very helpful.) What it does show is a lot of products whose scores seem to be unacceptably low.
