One of the app which isn’t present in the phone by default is the gallery and the other one is the file manager. Gallery shows the media files such as images, videos in a well designed way and yes it is one of the most used app on the phone. A user can have access to all the videos and images through the gallery option and can take actions on the media files as well. The actions include copy, cut, send, etc.

There are various gallery apps present on the play store and below we have listed the most popular ones.

Gallery Apps for Micromax Canvas A1:

Also, Google photos is available on the canvas A1 (AQ4501) device however I personally didn’t like it, if you’re satisfied with it there is no need to download any additional app for gallery then.

The file manager app is also not present on the device and you would not be able to check the data and files present in the device without it. To check the files/data present in the external SD card and the internal one download any file manager app from the play store.
