    When I bought my X the girl put in the app killer and anti virus at the store.

    Are they a necessity or do they cause harm and slow stuff down?

    They are not needed..All they do is slow down the device and eat battery life.

    They slow down the phone, and use more battery than necessary.

    I agree, the day I HAVE to install a farking antivirus/spyware software on my phone is the day I go back to feature phones. Don't browse/download porn on your smartphone and you'll have no virus worries.
