As long as you download apps from the play store and don't side load (download apk's from a 3rd party), anti virus software is pretty much useless unless it's got a lost phone tracker built in like lookout does.
Google Play has been good about not allowing apps with malware in their market, so I'd say go without having the software.
I haven't used anti virus in probably about 2 years and haven't caught a hint of malware yet
Hope this helps you out.
