Antox is probably the most likely to work, you can get it at
pkg.tox.chat/fdroid or from the google plus beta

Be aware that tox for androids is still in beta and will use a *lot*
of bandwidth and battery from your phone, so you will run out of data
if you use it via mobile connection only

I do not believe tox clients for android have video calling enabled yet.

Tox does not protect your ip from your friends, you will need to look
into another solution like tunneling tox over tor.
