* THEE BEST AV IN THE STORE * * RE-REVIEW * Have just reinstalled this on my S5 Galaxy KitKat & 376 Apps & 7500 files took 8 mins to scan, phone did NOT get Hot. I've tried most AVs in the store DUE TO Devs continually moving App goalposts & invariably have a habit of stuffing up a good product. Sophos GIVES FREE what others Charge for & this IS a rock solid good all rounder that is efficient Above & Beyond the Rest. I feel Secure with this & HOPE the App STAYS FAB. Can you Devs Add an icon to the top left to show it's running ? Steph

Best AV app that I've used, (that includes Eset!) +1 to Sophos. You hardly know it's running & that says it all really. *UPDATE* I've had to reduce to 4 stars because it flags up just about every app as "Low reputation". This was usually because of permissions such as "read phone calls" when these apps need to work in conjunction with incoming calls and others that want to check licences etc. This is noob knee-jerk stuff and I expect better of Sophos. It's still a great AV app though.

Best Freebie but Scan Issues I've just tried this for a 3rd time after the scan engine was updated when I had to reinstall my entire phone due to serious overheating and corruption of files. I have an S5 KITKAT with a 16Gig SD. scanning system apps too took 10 minutes to scan 373 apps and 7271 files and the phone got hot. I have tried MOST free AVs in the store & this seems 2 offer the most BUT I am QUITE concerned the updated scan engine may trash my S5 KITKAT. Feedback Sophos Please ? Steph
