Hello MIUI Users!
File Manager is a much-needed application for managing your files, having a couple of bonus features and functions along with all the expected actions like renaming, moving, copying, deleting, sharing, compressing and so on. Users have a lot of expectations from their manager. There are several apps on the Google Play Store of the same type but we choose File Commander this time. MIUI Debate Column is ready for another exciting debate. Let's have an overall comparison between the two apps and find out which app is better.

Which app do you use, and what features do you love in it?      
Have some points to debate? Great, we would like to hear them all!

Features of Mi File Manager that gives it an edge over File Commander:
Separate tabs: There is a separate tabs for recent photos and the internal storage which makes it look more spacious.
Beautiful UI: The icons of the app have been properly designed which looks attractive and has a white clean UI and Orange color combination.
Cleaner integration: You can access the cleaner app within it and make space for your device.
Can share the file via partner apps: Mi Drop is integrated with Mi File Manager and you can easily share data/files.
Find photos via apps: There is a separate tab which shows photos stored from those particular apps which makes it easier to find photos taken or used from these apps.
Favourites: You can easily mark your data favorite and find them when you need it.
Compress: You can compress your data within the app, no such feature on File Commander.
Hidden space is not easily viewable: Hidden space is not easily viewable at one shot by any stranger as it has a small trick to access.
Updates: Timely updates and new features are being continuously added.
No pop-ups: There are no untidy pop-ups on File Manager.

Features of File Commander that gives it an edge over Mi File Manager:
