Searching for files is a tad slow.

Our Review:

ES File Explorer gives you a quick and easy way to browse through folders and files on your Android device with a Favorites button, pretty convenient as you can use it to instantly get to the SD card home folder, root directory, bookmarked or frequently used folders and files.

Basic file operations are user-friendly too. You can easily move, copy, rename or delete files or folders by touching and holding an item in a list or icon view with a multi-select option. Zipping and unzipping with encryption also comes in handy when you need it.

Using the app to search files by file type or name inside a defined folder and subfolders is also possible but a tad slow when tested.

Besides functioning as a file manager, ES File Explorer also doubles up as an app manager for you to install, uninstall, backup apps, and a note editor for editing text so that you don't need to install too many other apps on your device.

And it doesn't end there. Many other features are included although you might not need all of them, such as transfer files over Bluetooth, Samba file sharing via Wi-Fi, built-in task killer, view and edit root-only files, SD Card Analyst and more.
