To be brief, even though malicious software DOES exist in Android, you’ll literally be fine without it... Just install from the Google Play Store only. There are times when a suspicious app makes it through to the store, but if common sense tells you to avoid it like very little to no downloads and zero reviews.
And of course, constantly checking permissions in your settings.

I have Malwarbytes for malware checks, Avast Mobile for antivirus, and Kaspersky Internet Security for Andriod on my phone. All free for basic versions, which is what I use. Probably overkill, but they're free. I run them about once a month. Have never had an issues. I downloaded them from Google Playstore.

um never used more than one antivirus program they dont play nice with each other. clean master provides one free and helps out with speeding you phone up. but the best way to speed your phone up is to delete or deactivate bloatware which is applications that either your carrier or phone manufacturer has been paid to install on you phone. just google your phone model and bloat ware. if you have had your phone for some time the other way to take care of it is to do a factory reset. i had to do this a couple of months back because i have had my phone for a while and it was slow
