I am new to a Smart phone, Windows Lumia 435, which is really a small computer.  Should I have anti-virus / anti-malware on my phone, and if so what?

There is this:  

Kaspersky Safe Browser  The app is a safe web browser for Windows Phone devices.  Get this app from Store on your phone.

 

However, comments from users are somewhat mixed, so I dont feel inclined to use it

 

Is there a reason in principle why security is not relevant to phones, as it is for computers?  Or maybe this is an as yet unexplored market for (a) security companies ( B) criminals?
