Maybe its not actually worse/slower storage, but only one NAND chip on the 32gb model, and 4 on the 128 model.
That would make reading/writing less pararlel, and cause this.
SAME thing happens on SSDs of lower capacity.
This might also happen on other devices like older nexus, new pixel, or even 16 vs 64gb iphones.
Duel, 08 Oct 2016No it beats all the android phones in the marketPut Android OS on an iPhone and lets see if it beats other android phones. ^_^
Android is a full OS while IOS is shell that run apps. IOS is way way lighter and easier to run.
But the topic is the terrible storage for 32GB option of the very expensive Iphone 7. Stay on topic.
TeamAndroid, 07 Oct 2016except it doesn't , it only beats slow bloated touchwiz crap .No it beats all the android phones in the market
Duel, 07 Oct 2016Funny part is Samsung doesn't even use SSD thats why their devices are so slow, well actually ... moreYou should read what SSD stands for as that type of storage (flash memory) had been used for a long, long time... SD cards (and every other type alike) use it, USB flash drives use it, SSD use it, EMMC use it, UFS use it.
Apple's implementation its kinda different from Samsung's as it have a SLC cache for a faster writing, but when its full, oh boy! its pretty slow.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2016This must be a joke. I hope everyone ignores you LOLOLWhich part? It's a fact
That's one big reason why still year old iPhone 6s beats every android phone in speed tests
Duel, 07 Oct 2016Funny part is Samsung doesn't even use SSD thats why their devices are so slow, well actually ... moreLOL. There isn't one smartphone in the world that uses SSD yet. Mistaken by the NVMe controller mate.
Who cares as long as it's faster in real use than my Samsung S6 edge+ I'm happy.
Duel, 07 Oct 2016Nothing to do with Apple http://www.howtogeek.com/248827/why-are-smaller-ssds-slower/ It's ... moreSo now we have to (and MUST) see which storage version of iPhone is using in iphone vs galaxy speed test.Right???
SaRPeR, 07 Oct 2016If Samsung did the same, you would start bashing Samsung. Clearly, Apple used cheap components... moreBy the way Samsung have done this already :D
"4KB Random read (QD32): Up to 98,000 IOPS (500GB/750GB/1TB); up to 97,000 IOPS; (250GB); up to 94,000 IOPS (120GB)
4KB Random write (QD32):" 4KB Random write (QD32): Up to 90,000 IOPS (500GB/750GB/1TB); up to 66,000 IOPS (250GB); up to 35,000 IOPS (120GB)
I wonder what you say about this ;) you see very similar stuff? Reading speed are almost same, with write speeds huge difference when chosing higher capacity
So i guess Samsung also used cheap components ;)
SaRPeR, 07 Oct 2016If Samsung did the same, you would start bashing Samsung. Clearly, Apple used cheap components... moreFunny part is Samsung doesn't even use SSD thats why their devices are so slow, well actually no-one else use SSD storage with their phones than Apple.
And no this has nothing to do with Apple, you should do some research how SSD storage works.
P.s i just tested wife's iPhone 6s 16gb and PassMark results are: storage read - 35.5; write - 317 MByte/s.
SaRPeR, 07 Oct 2016If Samsung did the same, you would start bashing Samsung. Clearly, Apple used cheap components... moreAny company who does this deserves a bashing. less parallel channels don't equate to few times slow storage. Apple did this by design, not by technology limitations.
