Storage Analyser is a very simple app, which works without any kind of special permissions, other than requiring access to the storage.
There’s no ads to pester you, or anything like that. As soon as you run this storage space analyzer app, you’ll see a list of all the folders ordered according to size. Folders are listed from the largest one all the way to the smallest one that you have on your device. Other types of sorting are available, according to name, date modified, etc. Tap on the folder name opens up the contents of the selected folder where again all the folders are listed according to size. You can of course manipulate the files, copy them, move, delete, etc.

If you are interested in something a bit more graphical to analyze storage space with a little bit more eye candy, then Disk & Storage Analyzer is what you need.

All three storage space analyzer apps for Android that we mentioned above worked great for us, and there weren’t any kind of problems. If we had to pick a winner, not so much a winner, a favorite, if we had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be the Disk & Storage Analyzer app because it has a bit more advanced features, like the graphical viewers. The other two apps are also not that bad at what they do, they’re just not quite as flashy. Try them all and let us know what you think in the comments down below.
