Bitdefender Mobile Security

unnamed

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:

galaxy-nexus-shorter11

  • 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:

transformer-prime1

  • 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.

  • alex

    I needs that GSM galaxy nexus :D

    • Jon Garrett

      I want that Transformer Prime !!

      • LV23

        Same here. I want that Transformer Prime :)

        • saurabh

          I need it too Wish me luck!!

  • http://wyldtek.samsession.com Sam Session

    I can't decide which I want more...

  • http://twitter.com/mikeGsays GarciaM25

    Winning either of those devices would be......... EPIC!!!!

  • Drew

    I got this. Everyone else might as well give up now.

  • http://www.pretentiousname.com Leo Davidson

    This one's a bit too spammy for me to enter. Nothing's free, I guess, but wanting all 6/7 of those things, which will spam my friends repeatedly, is too far for me.

    Maybe it's just me, I'm not saying this is wrong or anything, but it's over my personal line is all. :) Good luck to the entrants.

    • Dom

      You don't have to do every single one of those things to enter. It will increase the number of times that your name is in the raffle and thus increase probability of winning, but you can get away with doing just one or two of those things.

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

      Only 2 of the 7 options post something to the world (tweet and G+ share) - the rest don't affect your friends at all.

      • George C

        Sorta sucks you have to do both to get full entry. Can't it just be one or the other in the future? I love the contests, I don't like having to have a twitter, facebook and G+ just to get full enteries.

      • Cristian

        the widget its not clear..what the minimal number of option to complete to be eliglible??? or all are mandatory?
        i don't have facebook

        • Nocturnhaboe

          1 each point is an entry

  • Dave

    All done except FB, good luck all, but I want one lol.

  • Kree Terry

    Already got the lte gnex, the prime would complete my life!!!! Best of luck to everyone :)

      The prime really is a great addition to the gnex. Good luck to all!

    I REALLY miss my Galaxy Nexus (defective unit sent back for replacement). I wouldn't complain with either of these products. On one hand, a tablet, and on the other, a backup Galaxy Nexus. I'd be set.

  • Jephri

    Oh man, I have entered like 20 of these contests on AP. I want a tablet so bad but really can't afford one. Show me some love!

  • OBJECTION!

  • Irfan Katchi

    Amazing giveaway!! I want to win any of these!

  • Matthew

    Accidentally put the wrong link for "share this post on Google +". There is no way I can fix that?
    I did share the post on G+ though so I hope I wouldn't get disqualified for that mistake?
    (email address I entered under is the same as this comment, if you want to check)

  • Scott Y

    Some reason I can't paste any of my url's or twitter name. any suggestions?

    • David Ruddock

      What browser are you using?

      • Romit

        The widget didn't load in Chrome Canary... had to do from Firefox UX built...

        sorry but have to be on the latest version for testing sites.

  • http://Twitter.com/Dr_MBambi DarknesSx

    Entering for a prime :D ... or a Nexus.. i mean having two isn't gonna hurt anyway xD

    Thanks for globalizing it.

    Some Notes To Take Into Consideration:

    How will you contact the winner? It didn't ask for an Email, Just logged in with FB.. so will you use my FB Email? or FB messages?
    Note that FB messages might go to "Other" inbox which doesn't trigger a notification.. because FB really fails for not having an option for that... so please use the Email if possible. thanks

    • http://Twitter.com/Dr_MBambi DarknesSx

      By FB Email, i mean the Email i use to log to facebook not THE @Facebook.com Email which is essentially the crappy "Other" inbox..

  • Sean

    I love Android Police! Thanks for these opportunities! I never win, but it's always exciting!

  • http://Website rockstar323

    Really hope I win a Prime but a Nexus wouldn't be bad either.

  • Justin Moore

    My wife needs a GNex and I need a Prime.

  • https://www.facebook.com/humberto.verdugo1 Humberto

    I need that tablet for university, please let it be me

  • Kyle

    Crom if you give me this I'll be very grateful, but if no, go to hell!

  • Luis Martins

    I need a good android phone like galaxy nexus asap..Please I need it..my droid X is screwed up now since I bought it 2 years ago..

  • Tyler Cooke

    How is this contest random if we get points for performing certain task?

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

      The winners get selected randomly.

  • David Larsen

    Proposal: since they said we have no choice of device if we win, if someone wins a Transformer and wants a Galaxy Nexus, and I win the Galaxy Nexus, TRADE. I think they're worth about the same (if you buy off-contract, anyway).

  • Wade Arenberg

    This giveaway is amazing. I would love to have the transformer prime. Unfourtunately if I won the phone I would probably have to trade it for a decent Sprint phone.

  • Cole Dowden

    I would give either of these a lovely home! I <3 Android Police and Bitdefender!

  • Jon

    I sooo need one of these prizes!

  • Liam Vain

    Poppa needs a Transformer Prime :D

  • Lê Hoàng Linh

    Alright! Time to get myself a transformer prime.

  • Jonathan

    Wow could I use that transformer tablet at uni for much best note taking and pdf slide viewing/editing during my lectures.

    Would also love to have an upgrade of my phone to that beauty of a device, no question, for sure!

    Hope I win haha, good luck all!

  • Stephen

    I hope I win, so I don't need to upgrade and spend the money I don't have.

  • http://www.thepixelpuse.com aj

    Whoa. This is awesome. AP = Kings of the giveaway.

  • mikeymop

    Getting a Tranny Prime would make me so happy. I've been saving chump change to buy a tablet since the first Transformer came out :(

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

      Now that's a name I've never heard the Transformer called. Guess there's a first for everything.

  • Jose Lagman

    I hope I win, my Nexus One needs replacing

  • Michael

  • John

    Eight Chances for a great prize.

  • http://cse.sc.edu/~mccallji Jesse

    I SERIOUSLY need either one of these for managing school and work. I get numerous tasks and emails that I need to be able to read, forward, and add to my calendar. The tablet would be perfect for this but the nexus would also be amazing!

  • YooJung Bae Scott

    If i win, it's my first smartphone!~ ^o^

    • YooJung Bae Scott

      Question!
      Do I have to get all +8 entries to be part of this giveaway and win????
      Please reply

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

        No. Each one gives you extra points, meaning higher chance of winning.

        • YooJung Bae

          Thank for the reply! ^^

  • https://plus.google.com/104953315260113192008/posts James DAngelo

    So where do I pick my prize up?

  • Arnab

    I want a galaxy nexus.. :D :D

  • Tommy

    would love either! Prime would go to myself if I won and the Nexus would probably go to my bf. yes yes yes!

  • indreamer

    wow guys. honestly, you are the best.

  • J

    It's a shame I don't want them enough to spam everyone on my social networks about it..

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

      Again, 5 of the 7 options have nothing to do with your friends. If you don't want to let others know about it, don't use the other 2.

      Simple.

      • J

        That's what I ended up doing. Begrudgingly. I hate these social network plays wrapped in a contest.

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

      Oh come on, you can't miss this chance? :D

  • Mark
