Was getting performance issues after the update that had the ads. Verifying they are fixed. The previous version automatically installed a "quick charge" feature that somehow gets the battery to charge faster by fetching and display ads... Yeah right. My phone was constantly hot and battery life was horrible. After uninstalling, the phone temperature is back to generally being cool to the touch and I get a good extra 3x battery life. Giving three stars for now as the ads are gone in the new update, will change once I get a chance to test the other issues I was experiencing.
Previous versions are quick to load and had a better layout. Main screen layout is now a confusion of functional items and near full screen ads. Seems like changes for no good reason apart from more huge ads. And to make ES even more annoying, a big pop-up asks for 5 stars, but stalls at that point with email apps only to click-thru on. All-in-One Toolbox (paid) and Simple File Manager (free) are much easier to use - ES got too greedy, so I will probably delete it.
Notification abuser! Totally intrusive ads, simply unacceptable. In addition, i don't yet know of a way to turn off the ES App Analyzer. I don't like how ES is trying to do everything within a single app. They need to tune their settings to allow users to turn certain features off. My rating went from 5 stars down to 2, and now 1! Been 2 months since 2 star review and no improvement. About to uninstall and move to something else.
Long story, short. After this app updated, for whatever reason, it burned through over 7 Gigs of data this month (over 4 Gigs just today) which cost me $60 in data overage charges. After receiving emails about the charges, I did some digging and found the stats that showed this app as the culprit. Last month, this app used a little over 1 Gig of data (who knows why) compared to the 7+ Gigs so far this month. Unbelievable!
The overlay issue drove me nuts. A screen with ads kept popping up. I spent a few hours trying to find out what was going on. Also uninstalling a bunch of apps. The overlay was really annoying. Otherwise this is a good app.
Dear Es Team, Today i've just updated to the latest version of this app, and still you have not fixed out the "Memory Leak" issue yet...!! "File Scanner Service" is consuming 149MB of RAM and if we total all the consumptions of es file app then the Total Consumption is 185MB of RAM. And also i've just mailed you a screenshot about the "Numbers" showing in the homepage in every box (for eg.) Logger, images, video, files etc. Everytime when new something added why the numbers is showing and informing us. I've just want an option to "Disable" that nasty bug coz these all things are not alone which dis-satisfy me many of my friends and classmates, switched to astro file manager because of "High Ram Issue" and this "Numbering Issue". So i request you team members to please look into this matter and provide good solutions as soon as possible...!!
