    i noticed in Android 10 after upgrade, there are two apps Files and File Manager which seems to have same functionality. could someone let us know what is the basic need for this . it's just simply consuming the space.

    as to why they left two version? I don't know, however I'm sure it'll have a quality of life benefit for users who are accustomed to the older version.

    Files also has an option to show internal storage, but thank you for the information. I just noticed that option.

    If you notice the package names, Files is a part of the Android system, while File Manager is made by OnePlus.

    Ease of use? One is built-in.
