Other mobile manufactures like Samsung, Sony, etc., they usually customize the Android operating and includes many user-friendly and useful apps such File Manager, Document reader, and many more, to reduce the user efforts.

However, as Moto E, G, and X comes with pure and non-touched Android operating system, user would have to install them own from Google Play store. Well, here in this post, I am sharing most basic and must have apps to get started with Moto E, G and X after purchasing them. So lets start with File Manager apps,

File Manager Apps – Access to Memory Storage

When I purchased Moto G, I was shocked to know that their no File Manager app, I was struggling to access the memory of phone, however, then I looked into Google Play store and found that there are multiple file manager apps are available and tried many of them but none of them is good as what Samsung’s devices featured with.
