I just picked up the Galaxy s5, I had avg free on my other phone( xperia sp, piece of shit ), now I'm wondering if antivirus programs are even needed with Android?

Not needed in my opinion. Just stick with installing things from the Google Play store.

I had a virus on my LG Nexus Android and I needed to download an anti-virus. Not sure where it came from as I don't download anything onto it.

I would say grab a free one - can't hurt.
