Our Review:

The Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean versions of the Android system have not come with a file manager yet. It's probably most Android users have been craving for and yet it's not built in.

Unless you're having a file manager added on by your device manufacturer, you would tend to need one to browse the files inside your device. Or if you're not happy with the file manager that the supplier added for you, then why not install one that's most suited for you?
