Now it is well established that both Android and Apple phones and tablets can be hit by a virus or malware, are there tell-tale signs that will clue you in that your gadget is indeed infected?

Typically, profit-oriented infections like spyware, adware, clickware, or premium SMS scams are stealthy, since these want to milk your gadget for revenue for as long as they can.

So aside from the obvious signs of ransomware and lockware, can you tell that there's something malicious lurking on your mobile phone, personally I don`t own one so just wondering is this the case/problem?

Often, you will notice a drop in performance and reduced battery life.
