Sophos Intercept X user reviews :

Great overall free security application. I presumed it would be a battery drainer but was pleasantly surprised. User interface designed really well and user experience seamless, easy to configure. Scans are fairly fast, but cannot comment on accuracy as no threats as of now have been detected (which is a great thing if accurate!!). Really recommend this application!

Great software it doesn’t effect system performance, and it has all the features you would want to protect your device, definitely would recommend [updated review] this app work well and detects the majority of harmful apps and other threats, the only problem I have is after it’s detected and resolved a threat it seems to get stuck on a “wait for sophos intercept x to start” screen and when I try to close it it just opens again causing me to have to restart the phone, other than that great app

Ok my previous review gave five stars like I said great protection but now after a month I find a draw back this app is very power hungry uses way too much power drains the battery to fast .but I’ll wait and see if an update fix’s this problem before I decide to uninstall because I really do love the protection.

By far the best Android antivirus I’ve used, and it’s free. The security options are segmented in Device, Network and App. It also contains additional features such as, Authenticator, password safe, App protector and Privacy advisor. and I find the App protector and Privacy advisor very useful. I’ve seen people complaining regarding it’s UI, but I find it quite comfortable, it’s just, you need bit time to get used to. and another important factor, did not noticed any system lag so far.

Sophos Intercept is working well on my Samsung mobile phone and just sits in the background using very little power whereas other software was slowing down my phone and PC. I also use Sophos on my computer as Sophos was recommended to me by an IT manager in a large university.

This beats hands down any of the other apps most especially the big names. Especially like the app lock to protect sensitive information if the device is stolen. Perfect app self defense unlike most others as well which would defeat the whole purpose if it didn’t. Totally free and add free too.
