    Root access needed. The ultimate filemanager for rooted users. Multiple tabs, zip,rar / unzip,unrar. Access to external and internal storage, possibility to mount internal filesystem to move, delete and change system apps(bloatware). Also editors, viewers, scripttools and many more included.

    This is a paid file manager which allows you to go into any file of your phone. It works best with root. And I haven't tried it out on non rooted phones.
