Prevention is tricky, though there are bluetooth solutions that tell you if you accidentally leave your phone on a table at a restaurant. 

Google has the same type of "find my phone" service as Apple with the same options to locate it on a map, remote lock, or wipe. Some manufacturers offer their own (Samsung for one) and there are many older third party offerings in the Play Store. So on Android it's a fairly saturated field. 

Most of the third party apps fell by the wayside once Google set up their own. You need a Google account to run an Android device, and so everyone is automatically covered now.
