Best Download Manager for Android | How a Download Manager Speeds up the Download Process?

The very basic functionality of a download manager is to speed up the download process for us. A download manager achieves this objective by dividing the file, that we wish to download, into different parts or sections. Post splitting each section is downloaded separately. Since, these multiple sections are small in size and don’t occupy much memory they get downloaded faster.

Also, we do face a situation sometimes that a file, when half-downloaded, the process gets failed either due to network error or anything else. Traditional download managers available in your Android smartphone won’t provide you with any other option other than to restart download from the very beginning. This is fine as long as the file size is small. But, if the file size is big then it will definitely take a lot of patience to resume downloading from scratch. Here also, download manager applications come to our rescue. These download manager applications have an in-built feature to fix broken downloads so that we can resume downloading the file from the very same spot it got failed.

Cool! Isn’t it? Let me share with you now the Best Download Managers for Android 2018 which are readily available on Google Play Store.
