    Does the Apple iPhone 7 32GB offer much slower storage?

    Tests and comparisons against higher capacity iPhone 6S and 7 models suggest so.

    As these are benchmarks rather than real world usage, is it likely that anyone will notice in real use???????????.........I think not.

    More memory chips so more channels and more parallelism?

    When MS decided to use different SSDs on the Surface pro 4 models people freaked out over the speed difference. When apple does it... free pass. Grrrr

    As long as they don't explode in your pocket, I'm sure most don't really care.

    Although it is will be handy for me to know for the future.

    Could that be because the Surface is a tool, not an entertainment device?

    Probably, but there's also a (slight?) tendency towards criticizing MS more than Apple for similar failures. Apple has a huge brand presence, including un- or subconcious biases - and MS has a lot of baggage in the public consciousness, from Windows 98 to malware and various larger and smaller failures. The same goes for the "PC Master Race" crowd, that hate anything Apple with a passion - but there are fewer of them than Apple fans.

    OTOH, what would anyone expect in this case? Higher flash capacity = more dies = more parallelism = higher performance. Or would you expect Apple to source lower-capacity dies (at a higher cost, if they're even made any more) for the lower capacity models? I think not.

    Flash performance is absolutely important for the user experience of smartphones. But Apple does well here, even with lower capacity models. Time to move on, folks.

    How long does it take to copy an 1GB mkv file to the 32gb and the 128gb versions?

    Re: Does the Apple iPhone 7 32GB offer much slower storage?

    They're still NVMe drives, which is still faster that almost other type of mobile storage.
    The price is almost the same, bar the less memory but the higher CPU.

    What's new?

    Step 1.
    Translation for price-gouging: Give fruit tarts barely usable phone with 16GB storage. Fruit tarts have no choice but to soon after pay extra moolah through their bleedin nose for Apple's price gouging iCloud storage prices (on a per GB basis the most expensive compared to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive etc.).

    The alternative - pay the price-gouging price for 64GB (cos the 32GB option is deliberately/glaringly/promiscuously non-existent) at the Fruit Company's going rates, which is up to 10 times the price of removable micro-SD card on a per GB basis.

    Step 2.
    For the above - Substitute "16GB" with "32GB".
    Then... wait for it... Substitute "32GB" with wait for it... "128GB"!

    Step 3.
    & the fruit tarts will still love it! Slap me harder! Again!

    Barely usable?

    16GB is enough for some people who don't want to carry their entire music collection etc with them.

    Don't let the facts get in the way of a good rant though.

    While I'm partial to blackberry and apple pie, I'm not sure this is the right forum. Would you like me to move it to the food and cooking forum?

    it's the end of 2016 and an 128gb m2 ssd in the 42mm form factor costs 46$ ... and that's the end user price

    in 2016, a premium phone with no storage slot should have at least 4gb of ram, 128gb of storage and an usb-c port
