Airdroid vs ES File Explorer

One more post about my Xiaomi Mi3 phone. Though this is probably applicable to all Android phones.

I'd earlier used ES File Explorer to transfer files to and from Windows shares to the phone over Wifi. But when transferring to shares with a large number of files, or while transferring large files, ES File Explorer would keep popping up a 'Failed' dialog box, and would need repeated 'Retry' attempts to transfer multi-MB files. Finally looked for alternatives, and found Airdroid's features include file transfer. I use it in 'local network' mode, by typing in the ip address, so extra charges, no need of external network etc. ES is still useful for local file browsing etc.
