    Okay, teach OnePlus a lesson in security or two and ethically hack one of their devices (say the 5 or the 5T)

    You could also go with the pixel or pixel 2

    I'm really not in the mood to argue right now so I'll keep it fairly straightforward. You said it yourself, there's a reason Google releases security patches for Android. Did I ever say Android was flawless in terms of security? No. Stop putting words in my mouth in an attempt to act smart. Talk about stupidity! Stop being paranoid and just use your phone

    I have a question for you. Are mobile OS are designed for an intrusive services (for the OS) such as antivirus/anti-malware ?

    No OS was designed for antivirus or anti-malware. If they were, we wouldn't need third-parties to do so. And if they were designed with security in mind from the beginning we wouldn't be having this conversation. But do as you wish, I'm not forcing you to have any sort of protection on your device.

    But, the non-mobile OS are now able to run them. Windows now offers it as the part of the OS.

    If you were having the latest iPhone in one hand, would you consider to install an anti-malware/virus tool/app, if that was possible considering that no software is perfect ?

    Getting viruses on your phone is very unlikely.
    Most you will get would be malware or addware.

    Therefore I'd recommend malwarebytes, for that. But even then you shouldn't get such annoyances on your phone if you use it carefully by not installing loads of junk.

    That's privacy and not security. I never said viruses cannot be found, they can exist in any OS.

    Yeah simple I am saying that our own company pampered our privacy what we can expect from them that we'll get better security so I preferred him a solution go for a paid Antivirus software simple it will not solve all problems but it will give him assurance

    I understand where you're coming from, but it's just a waste of space and it's completely unnecessary IMHO

    Personally, I would prefer to not have the problem then some (kind of) placebo app.
    That would be by being a bit wiser and plus since he is has some experience in these fields, so he should instead be giving everyone else some free pointers on cyber-security (and cyber-common sense).

    you don't need an antivirus for an Android phone .
    as Android doesn't have .exe files as windows os do (just an example) . infact I have noticed that antivirus tends to make your phone slow .
