With so many files like images, videos and more stored in the memory of our cell phone, it is quite easy to be completely lost. Fortunately there are applications that work as file managers: they help organize and delete the files that occupy the memory of the device.
Many Android phones already come with some pre-installed file manager, but these are not necessarily the best options available. TechKhiladi has listed five free apps to help you organize your files and even free up space on your smartphone. Check the list below:
FX File Explorer
