    Nope. Speed boosters don't really boost speed. Antiviruses really aren't useful if you don't do shady stuff, like downloading from unofficial app sources (only Google Play, Amazon, and manufacturer stores are official), and if you don't allow 'installation from other sources' in settings. They do help in preventing your phone to be carriers of PC viruses though.

    Pointless IMO. However one of my ROMs I have installed in the past had DU Speed Booster & Cleaner pre installed on it, looks like it is currently updated so you could try that. I used to use Lookout antivirus for a while, but that was because I got pro for free and some of the anti theft features were handy.
    I would say if you don't download from unknown sources if you are unsure you don't need these. A lot of these kinds of apps cause more problems than they fix.

    ^Ninjad, what he said.

    Google also scans your phone periodically for malware (assuming you have not disabled google play services), so a 3rd party malware scanner is generally redundant.
