I accidentally downloaded a phishing, potentially trojan pdf file on my android phone. Will I be okay?

I was researching transphobic content in the Yakuza series, and accidentally downloaded the pdf..

I deleted it as soon as I found it, but stupidly downloaded it again to throw it through virustotal, accidentally opening it in the process.

It was a I’m not a robot page, then a heavily compressed one with text presumably stolen from an article. It was opened in google drive.

I deleted it instantly, and I’m currently scanning my phone with malwarebytes. Should I be okay, and should I take any other actions?
