Thoughts on Antivirus Apps for Android Phones

Just curious what everyone’s thoughts are regarding using antivirus software on Android phones? I had long shunned the practice, but recently my Pixel 6a started behaving strangely (browser and apps freezing). I decided to install AVG and do a scan which found 1 threat. Unfortunately the threat wasn’t identified by name. Anyway, the threat was quarantined, and things seem to be working more smoothly now.

Just curious what the prevailing opinion is today regarding the need/desire for antivirus apps?
