    Being able to find all the phone's files in one place? Just like on the computer.

    iPads have a pseudo file manager. iPhones don't.

    What file manager do iPads have that iPhones don’t? I have both devices and they both have the “files” app, which is basically just a hub for iCloud Drive and other cloud storage.

    That's about it. A Pseudo-manager. iPhones tend to be more tedious and I wouldn't count it.

    As far as I can tell it works exactly the same on an iPhone as it does on an iPad.

    Not quite. It's much more involved on an iPhone vs the easiness on the iPad (even a Mini).

    If you say so. Guess I haven’t used it enough to notice.

    I have. I use my SE or 7 for work and using the file manager on the iPhone is convenient but not easy. On an iPad it is quite easy and very convenient.

    Google's solution via Docs, Sheets and Slides is quite awesome. Apple should take notes.

    Maybe the fact that my devices are the biggest iPhone (8 Plus) and the smallest iPad (mini 4) is what makes the experience so similar for me.
