This is an excellent file manager app with every feature one would reasonably need in a file manager from extracting to moving to copying to viewing. Works flawlessly with Android 8.0 and the dark material design theme is amazing. Frequent updates ensure the app is working reliably. Keep it up devs! Full Review

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. Full Review

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 Full Review

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. Full Review

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. Full Review

The older version allows you to MOVE a file, the new one you have to copy and go back and delete from the previous location, any reason why I cast just move files anymore? Full Review

Update: Been having an issue with the Google Drive tab, it just stays blank. I tried re-installing but still nothing. I installed the regular Explorer and it connects just fine, any ideas? / Man, and I thought this app could NOT get any better! LOVING the update. The addition of my Google Drive alone is just awesome, and it works flawlessly. Tabs! Oh man, and they can stay where you left them. Come on, I'd pay for this all over again. THANK YOU! Excellent job guys. Keep it up. Full Review

I've moved big files with several other file managers & had them fail, not with this one, if file is over 300mb I choose this one. I gotta admit, someone gave me a old copy of this app & I used for quite awhile. Quite glad to show & support dev team for real now with purchase of this great app! Full Review

The BEST root or no Root app available. Quick response from technical support is amazing. I have used this app on over 5 phones & 8 tablets from Motorola to Samsung. I recommended it to over 100 people with very minimal complaints. If you can't operate or understand Root Explorer, don't blame them for your own incompetence or lack of knowledge. Don't leave bad reviews for not understanding something you probably shouldn't be F'n with. It does exactly what it is meant to do. Explore your file system but with many other awesome features.

Yeah great, fab, I've been commited to this app since Gingerbread days, but why did the old filing cabinet icon in the launcher have to grow an opaque white background? That icon is a big old no-no. It never used to be like that. Full Review
