I use both - File Manager in cPanel for uploading my webpages and testing them on the world wide web and FileZilla (FTP) for uploading much larger files. If I have to choose between the two, I'd rather select FileZilla over cPanel's File Manager because the former is free to download while the latter is not.

In some cases is better to use File Manager.
For example, is more effective in applying permissions to files. Sometimes ftp don't apply or give you error while applying them.

But, if you are looking to upload lot of files, then I would go by ftp for simplicity.,

I use FTP when I get into deep work on my site(s)... and I use File Manager whenever I need to do something really quick, since its way faster to handle.

In my opinion FileZilla is great. I have used FileZilla for a long time and I find it really agile.

I have never used File Manager. FTP is my favorite option, I use FileZilla.

FTP most of the time. The only time I use File Manager is when I need to make a quick edit on the files.

and I love FlashFXP. Not free though.

Hello Friends....

I use both.An FTP Client is useful when uploading a large number of files. Also, it is the most suitable application for uploading files with size of several Megabytes and more.

2.The File Manager is available through your Control Panel. It is extremely useful to manage the folder structure of your web space, upload a smaller number of files, or edit them directly on the server.

I use WS FTP Pro

But the file manager in cpanel is good enough for most people.

For windows hosting windows explorer works fine too for those that don't want to spend the extra money for a good FTP application.

I've personally used the file manager in cpanel several times especially when testing customers permissions or checking code in a paticular page. It's faster than setting up an ftp client but for large uploads or uploads with mulitple files its better to use an ftp client.
