In my personal experience I've never needed any av with any android phone. Av companies will make a big fuss about some adware and make it seem like some worm/virus just to make you purchase their product and like someone said Linux/android is one of the safest os out there now with that being said I'm not saying your 100% fool proof on your phone there are other harmful exploits out there that can leak your info. For example the NFC on the gs3 has been exploited and I'm sure we have read about some Bluetooth app that can be installed on a victim's phone and have someone take control of it. So bottom line is using old fashion logic let's keep our phones to ourselves and let's keep our credit/debit cards info out of our phones lol its better that way. Google wallet is just another security issue waiting to happen.
