I stick with Dolphin and its split view. You could do the same without split view, but you'd be dealing with two windows and the associated headaches.

I voted for pcmanfm. It shows thumbnails, handles the desktop (wallpaper and icons), does protocols like sftp well, handles automounting well, has UX that doesn't need to be relearned, allows you to turn off stuff like desktop-handling and automounting, doesn't make you fight it to really delete files instead of using its undelete implementation, has a UI built using toolkits that support nice things like HiDPI (GTK3 or Qt 5), and is light on the dependencies. In other words, it's everything worth liking. It's like comfort food.

Worth mentioning that I tried and then stopped using vifm, ranger and spacefm over the last couple of years.

Did you say split view?
Konqueror is able to get multiple split views. See, for example, https://imgur.com/a/iYy5e
Type Ctrl+Shift+(L/T) for Left_right/Top_bottom splits
Talking about split views in file managers, Konqueror rocks
To tell you the truth, this has already been better... In the past (KDE 3.x) it was possible to close each view using a keyboard shortcut (something like Ctrl+Alt+Shift+L)...
