Excellent file manager allowing multiple folder tabs, long filenames (at least 255 characters displayed with text wrapping) and more. I use it on an unrooted phone and couldn't function without it. The Android 7.0 built-in file browser called "My Files" on my Samsung phone is brain damaged in comparison.
Have always heard that this was the best of the root file explorers. After es went belly up I finally decided to make the purchase after years of debate. Eh, maybe it's just me or my old LG V10 but honestly I'm not impressed. Its not bad, just not great. I was already aware of the lackluster ui but the functionality isn't there for me. Half the time it won't make changes and yes I have rw turned on. Btw why do I feel like I have to turn it in every single time? Also my main grow is opening text editor is ridiculously slow. Guess im gonna have to limp back to solid explorer pro for the time being. I'll definitely give this another chance though. Years of 5 star reviews cant be wrong
Best in class file manager, getting the full version of Root explorer + free version of ES File Explorer pretty much covers power users file needs. Great if combined with Titanium Backup Root to export device backup images for the ROM afficianado crowd.
Note 8, NOT ROOTED. Got the new phone and now I'm not rooted. However, I still believe that RE is the best file manager out there. Still works great on an unrooted phone. Excellent example of what a fire manager should be. Does more than Antek Explorer.
I've used several file managers over the years, Root Explorer is still the best. Great search capabilities, good file management, easy archiving and batch operations. The best there is.
I have been using this app for at least 4 years now. It is among the first apps I install, rooted or not. A very effective and easy to use file browser.
