    Well Lookout will let you track a stolen or missing phone. There's two other good options for that-- Where's My Droid and Android Lost. So you don't NEED that function, but it's good to have and you might as well since it's free. But as far as an app for virus protection-- I see absolutely no need for that.

    No just choose one or the other.

    Nope, neither. The media love exaggerating the whole 'malware' thing in Android, the truth is, if you stick to Google Play Store and Samsung Hub for your app and gaming needs you'll be safe, it's when you go to dodgy sources that things get a little unsafe.

    You can use Lookout for tracking though as said above.

    One feature I like in Lookout is Lock Cam...it takes a picture of the person who is trying to unlock your phone if it is incorrectly entered 3 times. Sends you an email of the culprit.
