Exodus wallet for android has one of the best user interfaces. It is very smooth and fast to operate and you will just love its graphics. I personally do not recommend users to store a large sum of cryptocurrencies in its mobile wallet.
It also has a desktop version which is considered one of the best desktop wallets to store multi cryptocurrencies. The best part about this wallet is that you can sync the mobile wallet with the desktop. You can read this article to know how you can do that?
