    Norton Security for Android

    This app works wonderful! Love the interface and works well. The rating that this app has in the market doesn't show the right image, IMO..

    The reviews seem typical of the Symantic products I have used in the past, bloated and buggy. Only thing that's left is the hefty price tag once it's out of beta.

    You get a 90 day subscription, not bad. I know it will be expensive once it's out of the Beta stage.

    Symantec products are buggy and very laggy. I never liked Norton for PC but it seems to work very well on my N1. Personally, I like it much better than Lookout. More features with Norton.

    Remote Lock and Wipe- No need to download and install Prey

    Anti-Malware-Kind of buggy. Reviews have said that it identifies some apps are malware.

    Call Blocking - You can add a number to your blacklist and block calls.

    Live Update


    IMO, it's worth a download.

    Did it slow down your phone or drained more battery in any noticeable way? I absolutely hate Norton for PC but maybe this is worth checking in the future.

    It hasn't slowed down my phone and so far there are no signs of excessive battery usage by this app.

    Forget it. I don't run AV software on my PCs either so I certainly would bog down my mobile with this garbage. As always, know what you're downloading, what attachments you're opening, and what web sites you're visiting.

    I wouldn't install a Norton product on my Nexus One. I have used them in the past for my PC and did not like the lag it did on my computer - 2.8GHz processor was slowed down to act like a 1.6 GHz processor.
    Also, even though my paid subscription was up on 03/31 they would not let me update the definitions starting on 03/01. That was 4 years ago, maybe they have changed since then but I'm not giving them a second chance.
