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.

  • Torstein Molland

    Both the transformer prime and the galaxy nexus looks great, but I think I want the transformer more since I have been waiting for my preorder for about 1 and a half month now. They don't know when it will be in (the date has been mooved 7 times!) so it would be nice to win it here at Android Police.
