Top 10 best Android file explorers
Android phones allow you to access and manipulate files on your device’s storage. Most people use the Files app to do this, but there are many other ways to manage your files, some of which are more advanced and feature-rich than the standard file manager available on Android phones. In this list, we’ll take a look at 10 of the best Android file explorers that will help you manage your files on your Android phone or tablet better than ever before.
1. Best for basic users
Es File Explorer (free, Google Play Store) features a clean and easy-to-use interface with all of your file-management needs. What’s more, it also has an impressive set of features that puts it in league with many premium apps. The free version lets you manage files on your computer and in places like Dropbox and Google Drive, as well as on your own computer.
2. Best for advanced users
Root Explorer (requires root) Root Explorer is one of the most powerful tools you can use to dig deep into your Android’s storage. It lets you browse your phone or tablet’s file system, so you can access pretty much everything—including its contents on an SD card. Most apps have their own built-in file explorer, but it may not be quite as robust as what Root Explorer offers.
3. Best for multi-file transfers
ES File Explorer has long been one of our top picks for smartphones and tablets. Not only does it have a free version, but its Pro version (which is what we recommend) adds cloud storage, a media player, and lots more functionality. In addition to these premium features, ES File Explorer makes it easy to move multiple files at once from one folder to another—something that isn’t standard with all Android apps.
4. Best for cloud storage support
Orbox, Es File Explorer, and i-FunBox all provide access to your files on Google Drive, Dropbox, and SkyDrive. Additionally, most of these programs have support for cloud storage services like Box, SugarSync, and even Amazon Cloud Drive. In some cases, you might not get an official app from each of these services to use with them (especially Amazon), but there is often a third-party option in one of these apps that can work with them.
5. Best for FTP/SFTP support
FX File Explorer and ES File Explorer (free versions) are both extremely good at transferring files. The free version of ES File Explorer lets you get it done with just a few taps, and even saves you some steps by letting you upload photos directly to Facebook or Dropbox from your phone’s camera roll.
6. Best for root access support
Root Explorer is one of those apps that proves you don’t need to spend money to get a ton of features. It’s a full-featured file explorer that allows root access, multiple tabs and (along with most apps in its class) cloud backup and sync support. In other words, it’s more than enough for basic tasks. But if you want features like ADB connection or root browsing from your computer, it will cost you $2.49 via an in-app purchase.
7. Best free app
If you’re looking for a free, no-fuss approach to exploring your device’s storage, then ES File Explorer is your best bet. The app has an easy-to-use interface that keeps things nice and straightforward, making it easy to create new folders, copy/paste files and directories (aka folders on top of folders), and download files directly to your phone or tablet. You can even view all of your past downloads in one convenient location.
8. The best cross-platform app
Keeping track of your important files is a pain. That’s why you need an app that allows you to access files on multiple devices and platforms, especially if you use more than one type of computer (or more than one operating system). Es File Explorer allows Android users to do just that. This powerful file manager gives you easy access to all of your files—and it’s totally free!
9. A well-rounded all-around app
ES File Explorer for Android is a great all-around app for working with your files on an Android device. It’s incredibly functional and powerful, but also easy to use. This is one of those apps that you shouldn’t try out—just install it right away and get to work.
10. The official Android file manager.
The default file manager for Android is pretty basic, but it does get the job done. However, if you’re looking for more features, then look no further than the official Android File Manager. This app allows you to manage both your internal storage and SD card right from your phone’s UI without having to load up another app.
