The Three Top Managers of Files in Android [Commentators Bonus]

Android is a mobile operating system with which we can access the files as if it were a PC. The only difference is that serial does not come with a file manager by default (some brands of mobile Yes include it) and this is positive for two reasons. First, many users do not need to access mobile files since they use it for simple tasks, and it is not a question to complicate them. The second is that we can choose the best for our device.

Today we bring you those who believe that they are the three best managers of files on Android. There are many opinions on the subject and we want to make clear our.

ES File Explorer

In my opinion it is the best Android file browser. The interface has evolved a lot and currently has tabs, whose transition is done by sliding the screen left and right. This application not only allows you to access local files but in the cloud (Dropbox, Box.net, etc.) and the network (FTP, SFTP, NFS, SAMBA…).

In addition It allows to define gestures for common actions. For example go to a common folder, which is convenient for copying files from one place to another. It also brings photos, audio and video players and allows playback of files that are on the local network. As I say it is very versatile.

Astro file manager

Astro is the second in the list. It is also a versatile and powerful tool that has a graphical interface something more friendly than our previous choice. Also has local exploration, cloud and the network and allows you to search for files as well as filtering to view in the folder of interest only a particular type of files.

Also allows you to perform tasks that are not typical of a manager of files like backups of applications or manage the processes. A very complete application which drawback is the large amount of publicity that is removed to pay four euros.

FX File Explorer

A somewhat less known alternative although we already review it once is FX File Explorer. The main advantage of this file Explorer is graphic finishing, It is very good and detailed. It is a delight to get around it.

Features are basically the same we have seen in the previous managers, from local navigation to access services in the cloud or on local network, although it is necessary to pay to have the pro functionality for these latest features.

You with what you stay? IS file Explorer, Astro file manager or FX File Explorer?

By popular request we add Solid Explorer, a browser with a graphical interface very elegant with two independent panels to copy files in a very simple way. It also supports cloud services, network access and root access.
