Decent security, I would also make sure you have sim lock enabled. Also Comodo isn't really known for their android security, but then again you don't even need a antivirus in the first place but just a tip to be more secure would be to use a more reputable android security app such as eset, 360 security, kaspersky, or lookout. Also what do you use to lock your phone? Pin, password, fingerprint? Other than that you look good!

First time I've seen Comodo used on a driver. How is the impact on your device from it? Is your Note 4 configuration similar to this one?

Updated Note 5 config 1/15/2017
Moved from Comodo Mobile Security to KIS 2017 which comes with Android Protection.
Comodo was actually pretty good.Very little impact and had some good features,call blocker was excellent.
Comodo did what it was supposed to for the price of free.
Have used ESET and Avast both are very good also.
Have been using Kaspersky for a few months now.
Also use Adguard

What did you think of Avast Mobile Security with in-app Ads? What made you decide on Kaspersky over ESET?

The ads are the main reason I moved away from Avast.
I use Kaspersky on many PC's and ESET on a few.
Licensing was probably the main reason for not considering ESET anymore.
Even with the newest version ESET Internet Security Premium it does not include mobile security as you have to purchase a multi device pack or the Android mobile security.
With a Kaspersky Internet Security 3 device license you activate it on Android.
Cost wise I think Kaspersky comes in less.
Protection and features they are both about the same.

Agree with you on the In-app Ads on Avast Mobile Security. The benefits to upgrade to Pro didn't feel worth the price for the few uninteresting features.

Surprised to seeing the non-exist difference between ESET Internet Security and Smart Security Premium. For £10 more you get a Password Manager and Encryption tool.

I have not used Kaspersky mobile, but have been using Eset Mobile now for a couple weeks after removing Norton Mobile, which was buggy and nagged me often to install other Norton mobile products. I really like Eset mobile and more then likely will be keeping it for the long haul.

Curious what phones you all have minus the OP? I have a Pixel XL and do not use anything. Have tried a few over the years but never saw the benefit of having one. Most of them just caused wakelocks and then battery drain for me. Only thing I do use currently is DNS66 to block ads.

I tried KIS but felt it was too much and slowed down my device. Recently went back to just using AdGuard. Good times.

I don't really think you need an anti virus solution for your Android device, if it's on Marshmallow or further. Permissions Manager can do the job for you if you know how to read and you're not stupid.

That is how I feel as well. Tried a ton of them over the years. Most are bloated piles of garbage that cause wakelocks and thus battery drain.
