Bitdefender Mobile Security


I'll admit it, I'm anal about CPU and RAM usage. I'm the kind of person that goes into MSConfig every 6 months to scrape useless startup processes like barnacles off the hull of a ship to keep boot times down and squeeze every last possible increment of free RAM and CPU that I can (insert "Then you should use Linux" joke here) out of my system. If you're like me, then you probably avoid heavy, suite-ized security solutions like the bubonic plague crossed with bird flu. There's nothing worse than turning on a new Windows laptop and discovering Norton is installed. I get chills just thinking about it. So when Bitdefender promised a lightweight, full-featured security solution for Android, I was intrigued, but a little skeptical.

So I reviewed it. And I like it - for the most part. It's a great lightweight security solution for your Android device. It's simple, easy, and (most importantly) low-impact when it comes to performance and battery life. It has the basic features I want (like antitheft with a web dashboard), and makes using them straightforward and hassle-free.

For those who want a "set and forget" solution, Bitdefender Mobile Security may strike the perfect balance of key features, ease of use, and non-intrusiveness. It stays out of the way, doesn't require extensive setup, and does what you expect of a security app without the gimmicks or the bloat. It gets the job done, and it doesn't make you feel like you've sacrificed performance or battery life in order to protect your device. You can't ask for much more than that.

The Prizes

A total of eight grand prize winners will be selected at random (sorry, no choice of the device you win). Four random winners will receive a Galaxy Nexus (GSM version), and four random winners will receive ASUS Transformer Prime 32GB Tegra 3 tablets. The Galaxy Nexus, briefly, features:


  • 4.65" SAMOLED+ HD display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TIOMAP4460 processor
  • 1GB RAM / 16GB internal storage
  • GSM 3G (HSDPA/HSUPA, pentaband, unlocked)
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

And the ASUS Transformer Prime:


  • 10.1" Super IPS+ display
  • 1.4GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM / 32GB internal storage (with microSD slot)
  • Wi-Fi
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (via OTA update)

Finally, 10 runner-up winners will receive one-year subscriptions to Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android.

  • CA Nikhil Dsouza

    PS: I was just wondering, my Mom is a fan of your website too and the two of us regularly read everything posted here which includes all the giveaways you guys hold.

    Now my question is " Since we use wireless networking in our house and all our devices spoof one single Mac ID, also, our connection is a DHCP one, so most of the time when the two of us enter any contests here it would show the same IP + Mac Id" Please let me know if that will be counted as an infringement of rules?

  • Gracie Dsouza

    ^ Unlike my son above who will mostly use the tablet for reading music, I intend to use it for reading ebooks and for my blog.

  • Sathish

    Hey policemen.. Just thought I'll point you to a little typo in this post (haven't checked if anyone else has picked it too!)...

    "giving you a chance to one of eight awesome".

    Should it be "giving you a chance to WIN one of eight"?

    Sorry to be nitpicking here :)

  • Arz Bhatia

    Can't. Stop. Refreshing.

  • http://alinberce.wordpress.com Alin B.

    I wonder what's taking so long for results...

  • saurabh

    someone told me you choose your friends as winners Prove him wrong

  • Rohit Mandrekar

    How long for the result's ? Can't wait to lay my hands on the Galaxy nexus :D

    • http://www.arzbhatia.com Arz Bhatia

      They have to chose 8 people amongst 52452 haha! :) Calm down calm down!

      • Marcos Amano

        It's just put it on random.org and generate 8 numbers. :p

  • Adhitya Varma

    Though the odds seem really good at first sight, the probability of winning is really low.
    around 0.000153846154. Im an English student, so i may be wrong.

    • trixtur

      You are wrong. By "Winning" I'm assuming you are saying that you will get something. There are 18 prizes, and you have the ability to enter 8 times. Assuming you've done this, the probability is (8 * 18)/52452

      If you are suggesting just wining an android powered device its (8 * 8)/52452 which is still 0.122%

      • Adhitya Varma

        I thought so to at first man. But i don't think it works like that. That would just be the probability of the first draw. When one winner is out, there is one less device for almost the same no of entries. And after 2 winner there are only 6 devices for 52452 entries. The probability decreases exponentially.

        I still might be wrong though.

        • trixtur

          Any subsequent drawing would only increase your chances of winning, not decrease as your initial calculation has suggested.

        • trixtur

          Beyond that if you consider each drawing, lending your 8 chances to win to each of them it would be:

          8/52452 for the first round
          if you didn't win
          8/52452 for the second
          and so on...

          If you think about that... its (8 * 8)/52452 as I suggested earlier.

        • trixtur

          Not trying to be an @$$ or anything. I'm just suggesting that the odds aren't as poor as you imagined.

  • Adhitya Varma

    I thought so to at first man. But i don't think it works like that. That would just be the probability of the first draw. When one winner is out, there is one less device for almost the same no of entries. And after 2 winner there are only 6 devices for 52452 entries. The probability decreases exponentially.

    I still might be wrong though.

    when are the results coming?

  • Adhitya Varma

    Why the fuck is it taking so long? im going crazy

  • http://premium-account.org Thiago

    How long verification will take?

  • http://new-it.ro Dragos Bunea

    "Please come back soon" :)) lol
    Random.org + Camtasia or anything like that and we will have the 8 lucky users. Come' on, is not so hard!

  • sri Sharan Banagiri

    What is talking so long? I am anxious for the results

  • http://www.arzbhatia.com Arz Bhatia

    So many Indians over here hehe :)

    • senthil

      Aren't we cheap. Look how we flood for a free product. lol

  • sxffz

    Ah please, publish the results. I want to unfollow your spammy twitter.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Oh, I can't wait to satisfy your wish.

  • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

    All winners have been posted, sorry for the delay.

    Every entry requires verification to make it fair for everyone, which takes a considerable amount of time.

    It didn't help that I went on vacation immediately after MWC and finally found a few hours to finalize everything.

    Oh, and sxffz. Kthxbye.
