Addicted to rox-filer. Though I do like spacefm and Xfe. If out of X, I use ranger.

i have no vote to cast here.
file managers have always been a problematic issue.
i really like thunar, but for many years tumbler (thunar's thumbnailer) has a bug that makes it use resources uncontrollably.
pcmanfm is good and getting better, but i have problems with gvfs integration (mtp mostly) and some other minor annoyances.
spacefm is very good, too, but...
more and more often i choose to simply open a terminal to copy files and such.

well, i am interested in the result and other people's comments.

GNOME Files because it always correctly works with Android smartphones and other external devices while Dolphin and some other file managers sometimes cannot recognize them "out of the box".

Midnight Commander will always win for me, despite its inability to display thumbnails for images and videos.

On what distro? I recently got a new Android phone, and pcmanfm on Debian Stable (Jessie) works just fine for MTP.

on archlinux.
it works, but is quirky with mtp & my kitkat phone (sometimes doesn't react anymore, or copying fails halfway through...).
pcmanfm had some other quirks, too: sshfs (seldom now, there was a fix that was with fuse) and generally copying to/from external locations is usually much faster with command line, but i guess that's just normal...

Same here. My last 3 Android phones never worked 100 with Linux Mint 17.2 and for that matter Slackware 13.0 to Slackware -current as it is. MTP is flacky as it gets. The operations are so slow that my pet snail "jumbo" laughs on it. Oh and phone gets disconnected on its own and reappears.

Regards.

Although I voted for MC, I think there's still lots of improvements that can be made, it seems to have stopped in time. For example, select a file in MC, press F2, available options: "Edit a bug report and send it to root", "Strip headers from current newsarticle"... Well, it could try detecting the file type like Thunar does (and I believe most other file managers do) and only show what is appropriate. Too many options shown at the wrong time make me really use MC only for browsing directories, and when I want to do any action, I press Ctrl+O and do it from the shell.

Also Sunflower (http://github.com/MeanEYE/Sunflower) would have been nice.
