While it is true that the ES file manager is not very different from the default Android file manager, it is much more convenient and easy to use, and the interface looks much better. However, there is one feature that is not available in the default file manager, which is automatic synchronization with a cloud storage service. Besides, ES File Manager can do everything, such as exploring files, creating files, copying files, moving files, searching files, sorting files, etc.
