Best Android file explorer and manager apps

File manager apps are among the most popular apps on Android devices. Using these you can browse your files, search for your downloads, manage your storage space, move things around and a lot more. Not everyone is too keen on file organization because it can be quite boring at times. Here are the best file explorer and manager apps for Android.

ASUS File Manager

ASUS File Manager is an OEM app and is actually really good. It’s compatible with most devices, even non-ASUS ones. It has a clean, simple interface with LAN and SMB support, cloud storage support, support for various types of files, archiving support, and more. It’s entirely free with no in-app purchases and provides a great experience for a simple file browser.

ES File Explorer

ES File Explorer comes with pretty much every feature you can ask for in a file browser. It was purchased by another company a while back. The free version of the app has a ton of added bloatware that adds a few glitches. The pro version of the app doesn’t have any glitches. If you’re gonna go with ES, get the pro version.

File Manager


File Manager is also a great organizing app. It’s a newer file manager app that gives you one of the best sets of features without adding too much bloat. You’ll get basic file management features along with cloud storage features, NAS support and more. You can even browse your installed apps, music and videos with this. The best part is that the app is free with no in-app purchases and ads.

Root Explorer


Root Explorer has been a favorite of root users for a long time. It’s been updated over the years and includes a newer interface, more features and better stability than its previous versions. You’ll have unmitigated root access (if your device is rooted) to do as you please. It includes tools like an APK binary XML viewer, the ability to change a file’s owner, MD5 support and more. There is a free version called Explorer. However, it’s more for normal use.

Amaze File Manager

Amaze File Manager is a newer app and it’s a pretty good. It’s open source and focuses on a lighter experience for those who just need to do some file browsing. It features Material Design, SMB file sharing, a built-in app manager to uninstall apps, root explorer and more. It’s free to download with optional in-app purchases in case you want to help fund development.

MK Explorer


MK Explorer is another newer file manager option. It’s doesn’t have a whole lot of flair. It features a Material Design interface, basic file management(copy, paste, delete, SD Card support for Lollipop 5.0+) and root access. There is also support for 20 languages and it has a built-in text editor, gallery and music player. It doesn’t have cloud storage or network storage support.
