Among others I tried Solid Explorer, X-plore, FX File Explorer, and ES3. These are all the big guys, full set of functions for power users. Which to chose is mostly a matter of personal preference, reflected by all of them getting a 4.7 rating at Google Play. My personal favourite yet is FX File Explorer, bcs I like the interface, and also that it only requires few permissions. Albeit I personally do not need changeable skins, themes and surround sound in a File Manager.

For everyone who likes a simple, clean and fast File browser OI type, take a look at File Explorer by Amey Sakhadeo (there are several named File Explorer in the market, check for the developer name). It is of humble size, and uses minimum system resources. It only requires 3 permissions, needed for its function. It's like a more modern OI File Manger. I would like to see an exit button which removes it immediately from system memory.

Something similar but with root support is the Inka File Manger. Nice are the two side bars to access settings. It has an Exit button but it's not removed from system memory through it.

I used to be a staunch ES file manager user. I liked that I could do most things fairly easily and have used it for a couple of years after ditching astro when it wouldn't stream video from my live hub in the living room. ES did that and much more besides.

But then I wanted to overwrite some ogg sounds in my system drawer to get a certain sound when selecting things. ES wouldn't let me overwrite to the system folder despite being rooted.

I looked around and discovered Solid.

Wow! things came a long way and solid is really nice. Intuitive and no fussing finding things on the network and it overwrites system files with no argument. It's also very pretty and all scaleable with quick thumbs of media over a network. Streaming video over the network works a treat too.

Solid all the way for me

ES explorer
I love ES explorer. I use it for any task related to files, and it's perfect to access files from samba networks. I have a NAS server at home and i connect my tablet to my tv for showing programs and films and i read it from the NAS server throught ES explorer. It's easy to use.

Hello, ES was my favourate too, until latest update. I immediately removed it and searched for other better one. Why? Because it is not contaminated(bribed) by facebook. They start facebook services everytime I run it, even when I have killed the facebook from the task app info. Facebook is doing this recently to many popular app companies. Its a serious privacy concern.
Good luck.
