How do I access the files saved on my Moto G3?

2016-08-22, 14:39 PM

In my previous mobile phone (a Samsung SII Plus) there was a Document folder where I could easily find all files saved in the phone.

Now I don't see any similar feature in my Moto G3.

How do I save/retrieve/manage personal files (including image files and downloaded files) in the mobile? Is there a "document" folder that is accessible? Or should I install an app?

Thanks in advance,

Carlo

The short answer is - it depends. There is a download folder and it is accessible from the app drawer - it is an app called "downloads". Most of the files you download will wind up there. Some apps may do things differently. 

 

you can also get a file manager app, for more flexibility, and there is a rudimentary file manager available under settings-> storage & usb -> scroll to bottom and explore

Ok, thanks.
I know that Downloads folder but it only contains downloaded files.
The 'Documents' folder in my previous phone was way more useful and well conceived, I could manage all types of saved/downloaded files from there.
I guess I will install a file manager app.
