Maybe or maybe not, but this is about protection against malware, hackers and viruses which Android fails miserably at.

No, he's not!! I own a Moto X, Kit Kat inside, as you know, and that sucker stutters and lags. My SGNx with JB, smooth as butter for the first month, now well, see above. I will say, if you haven't used an iOS device in minute, the lag and stutter becomes negligible and you become used to it. Having said that, I will not give up the freedom Android offers, its biggest strength.

It should be mentioned that while apps from 3rd party sources can be dowloaded onto Android devices, the option to turn that off has always been available. That's the power of choice.

And also remember that it comes disabled by default.

Android now brings Device Manager which can help you lock, erase and locate your phone...

On my Android phone, it has an option to allow apps to be installed from unknown sources. This option is disabled by default. By default, you cannot install apps from unknown sources unless you actually turn on this feature.

In my opinion no phone isn't safe from malware or hackers. everything can still be attacked.

Exactly! It's just that hackers, like most people out there, have no interest in WP.

Can I know why do you feel so "preveileged" with an OS than can, at best, do only half what the world most advanced OS can do?

Preveileged and satisfied are complete opposite of WP experience...

It can't lag as the world's most laggy OS. I almost feel sorry.

LMAO, like a buggy and laggy open-source OS is a source of privilege. Talk about BS. M$ makes more money off that laggy crap than HTC, and those, what were the called again? Yeah, right, those 'other' failing OEMs.

No. If I were, then so were you. I was quite simply "refering" to Android, you know, that crappy, infected OS, also known as the world's most laggy OS, a.k.a Lagdroid.
