PDF files are the most commonly used documents in both academic and business world. Until not so long ago, Adobe's PDF Reader is your only choice if you want to read PDF files or eBooks on your Android, but now you have a variety of selections. Here we summarize the best 10 PDF readers for Android for your selection.

Note: We've covered on how to recover PDF files from Android for those who have deleted or lost PDFs on Android phone and tablet. Click to learn more if you find it useful.

1. Adobe Reader

Price: Free

On top of the list is Adobe Reader which is also the most prominent PDF viewer for Android. Adobe has pretty much all of the standard features you'd expect in a PDF reader and a whole bunch more. Most of the features are geared toward business use so we recommend you use it for that purpose. It allows for limited annotation. However, you'll not be able to edit PDF files. You can convert it to other formats to edit it in other apps should you have such needs.

2. ezPDF Reader

Price: Free version and $3.99 version

Similar like Adobe Reader, ezPDF Reader is also mainly developed for business use. But different from Adobe Reader, ezPDF does have some features for those who need it specifically as a reader. Such features inckude the FormFiller feature, ePub support, and multimedia PDF support. There is a free version which gives you some of the features while the $3.99 version gives you all of them.

3. Foxit MobilPDF

Price: $9.99

Foxit is a lot different from the above PDF readers for business users. It offers the annotation feature and the ability to sign PDFs. It also has cloud support which is always good these days and focuses mostly on opening PDFs quickly and cleanly as well as smooth operating. It's more polished than a lot of the options on this list and does offer at least the basic features required to make it onto this list.

4. PDF Reader

Price: Free

PDF Reader, the name just implies what this app is all about. It has one of the longer feature lists of any of the apps on this list and includes mostly features for reading PDFs rather than business uses. This is a great app to check out if all you need to is read things like books in PDF format. It includes a lot of features like brightness, auto-scroll, dictionary support, TTS support, and others geared specifically for reading.

You should know that PDF Reader doesn't support making notes for PDF files. If you need such feature, you should leave this app alone.

5. Kingsoft Office+PDF

best pdf viewer for android

Price: Free

Kingsoft is technically an office app but it does contain a few features that specifically deal with PDFs. Namely, you can save documents in PDF format if you need to as well as open PDFs if you need to. From there you can print or read them as needed. It doesn't have a lot of the features; however, Kingsoft office suite could be a good choice if you'd also like to use the other office documents like Word and Excel.

6. MuPDF

Price: Free

MuPDF has a lot of advantages compared with other PDF readers. It opens PDF files quickly and cleanly and gives you the basic options like filling out forms and annotation. It even supports Google Cloud Print. It's totally free to use, so it's hard to complain about the features it doesn't have.

7. AnDoc

free pdf readers android

Price: Free

AnDoc's can open and view both PDF and DJVU file formats. Furthermore, its numerous options to tune the way it works can help to reduce the RAM usage as well as you battery. Of course, not everything is perfect, as AnDoc lacks a text reflow option and there is no way to delete or clear your "recent files" option either.
