Very true. But the actual percentage of Android users who contract 
malware is less than 1% (0.01 sticks in my memory.) And almost all of 
those users are downloading apps from non-authorized sources. If you 
stick to Google Play and Amazon you're as safe as iOS. Those stores vet 
their apps much as Apple does.

If it helps, Android scans your device regularly and removes malware 
even if the app was downloaded from an unauthorized source.

Avoid the cheap Chinese knock-offs that ship without Google's software. 
Those are the dangerous phones.
