MyCelium hands down is secure.
Have been using it as my mobile wallet and never had an issue with it or had any thoughts of losing my coins using it.

Jaxx is insecure? I've heard about it a lot but never actually used it, although this is the first time I've heard it's insecure. Anyway, since android phones run apps in a VM a mobile wallet on an android phone is the most secure type of wallet short of a cold wallet (if you use IPhone then I can't really help you there).
It is insecure because they don't store your seed safely. This means that anyone with access to your device can steal all your coins without any problem. The worst part: Their devs are saying they won't fix those issues because they are "very comfortable with this security model for hotwallets" and they expect the user to "maintain control of their devices and keep them away from anyone that may steal your wallet".

Not only this, but their wallet have a lot of bugs unfixed and you may end up losing your coins. Just check the tons of issues the users are experiencing in Jaxx's subreddit /r/jaxx/

On the other side, people may be overreacting. https://medium.com/@homakov/why-you-shouldnt-worry-about-the-jaxx-hack-6344a4c4a11

If Jaxx is not save, then does that mean all the mobile wallets are insecure? Then where should i keep all my coins?
I think jaxx is safe i have used it for long time to saving ethereum on there, but still there are risk losing the digital coins on there, so i also used mycelium on android smartphone devices, jaxx to saving the altcoins and mycelium to saving the bitcoins, actually there are no guarantee our funds is safe in mobile wallet, so never put the digital coins in one devices and always do back up the private key.

But which ethereum are you holding on that wallet?
Eth or Etc? The Classic one had an issue a while ago and don't know if that was ever resolved completely or not.

I think not all jaxx users are affected in the issue before.. or maybe this users are newbie in using jaxx wallet..
If you want really safe of your bitcoin that immune to any virus better to try use hardware wallet like ledger nano s that you can hold different altcoins or you can also use in bitcoin..
This is i think much more safe than using other apps for mobile since the security of mobile is really low many viruses in android these days . since i'm technician i experience viruses that can get the email in android mobile or keylog your touch.. so always be safe if we use a 3rd party like ledger nano s..

As it is, it is very unsafe if you keep your coin in a mobile wallet. Because any mobile wallet must be vulnerable to account break-ins because it is vulnerable to viruses. It's a good idea to save your coin in a desktop wallet that is more secure than mobile wallet. I've tried it and I think it's pretty safe.

you can try once elctreum because it is more safe and secure. but few coin users are using coinbase site it is not more secure i mean it has no more secure present. so you try to choose  best site for keeping coins. in the electreum fee also reasonable and easy to keep savings. and another wallet is jaxx is also good and secure wallet.

I think the most secured and best mobile wallet is MyCelium. GreenAddress (aka GreenBits) is also fine.
If you have an IOS you kinda forced to use Bread wallet (which is ok - but not the best one).
Still.. its always advisable to not store larger amounts of bitcoins on mobile wallets.
Android phones are pretty vulnerable to exploits lurking around on the internet.
