I currently have a 1 year license for Dr.Web Security Space Life and so far, so good.
Dr.Web correctly detects and identifies those malwares that comes pre-installed on many Chinese smartphones (Doogee, Bluboo, etc), and none of the first three in the list, can do that (I've tried them all). The other antimalware that detects the chinese bugs is Malwarebytes. Period.
But according to this article, LG, Samsung, ZTE and Lenovo have presented malware pre installed too: Over 30 different Android smartphones and tablets have been found to have had malware preinstalled on them before users even switched them on.

Not just Chinese products. I ordered two cheap tablets from a British manufacturer on Amazon for my grandparents that had malware pre-installed on it (found by Malwarebytes). Worst part is it's currently one of the best selling tablet on Amazon UK with a 4-star review.
The malware installed random apps on the tablets over time; you could uninstall them but the next day there'd be another. It also flipped the screen when you attempted to move an app around the homescreen to deter you from uninstalling the apps that way. It's considered a system app so unless I root their tablets (couldn't be arsed) I can't remove it, so I just disabled it.

My Bitdefender mobile security expired in February. Had time to use it. Well i'm not surprised about the results. It's an excellent app. Light, effective, tons of anti-theft settings and options, and very good support for different android browsers. If you want to buy it, don't think twice, buy it;)

Not surprise here, considering the scale of threats in mobile can be easily alert by numerous security companies compare on actual ones from laptops and desktops.

So of course the performance is already obvious, well I'm not using neither them cause my risk level is very low considering of just browsing in Facebook and some sites from Google searches.
