10 Best Free Android File Managers

10 Best Free Android File Managers

A file manager is software which provides a user interface to assist in the organisation of files. It helps users with their daily work in managing their files on local or network storage.

All file managers provide basic file management operations such as create, open, view, edit, move and delete files. However, many Android file managers also offer additional functionality such as network connectivity, application management, archive and compression handling, searching, and more.

You might question why a file manager is an essential tool for a phone. However, many Android smartphones have large on-board capacities. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S2 has 16GB of on-board storage, and up to 32GB of additional storage via microSD. With that amount of file space, there is a genuine need for a competent file manager.

To provide an insight into the quality that is available, we have compiled a list of 10 proficient Android file managers. Hopefully, there will be something here that will appeal to anyone needing more functionality than that offered by the stock Android file manager.

Now, let's explore the 10 file managers at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, providing screenshots of the software in action, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
