There are times when we are downloading a large file and it doesn’t get downloaded due to one reason or the other. It might be that due to slow internet download failed, or by mistake, you closed the window and the download got canceled.
Downloading a large file on any PC or laptop is really easy, convenient, and fast as the internet is filled with loads of third-party software and browser extensions for making your life easier.However, the same cannot be said for Android devices as downloading a large file on any Android device is nothing less than a headache. The download fails due to several uncomfortable issues such as not being able to resume the download if the internet speed is low or the connection fails.
There is an easy solution for such problems and it is called as Download Manager. There are several amazing download managers that you can find on Google Play Store and install on your Android device. Download Managers will allow you to smoothly download any large file while giving you the same experience that you get on a PC.
