I'm using Infinix HOT 10. I got tired of the buggy pre-installed File Manager, so I started looking for alternatives on Google Play Store. To my surprise, I found the Google Files app (which is supposed to be installed on my phone alongside the buggy pre-installed File Manager) in the search results with the option to install it.
I wondered "If it is already installed on my phone, how can the option to install it be there?". So, I installed it. Then I ended up with two apps that have the same exact name and icon but they look different when opened.
The Files app that is pre-installed can't be uninstalled. It also can't be force-stopped or disabled, unlike the pre-installed File Manager app, the Files app that I installed or other Google apps.
It's mentioned in the "App details" section in "Settings" that it's installed from Google Play Store. But when I chose to view it on Google Play Store, I got a message that told me to try again.
I find this to be suspicious and weird. Any explanations?
