    Old news, well a few days/week. But I'm lucky i guess, I got UFS 2.1 storage on my Galaxy S8, KLUCG4J1ED – B0C1 flash memory chips are installed on my device.

    500-600MBps vs 700-800MBps, on a smartphone. Nobody's going to care.

    Re: Buying the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a storage hardware lottery

    My S8 should be delivered today so let's see what I'll get in mine...

    In theory, as it'll be the EMEA model, it'll have the Exynos chip and therefore more likely to have USF2.1?

    But as royo said, doubt I'll notice the speed difference.

    I just got the macbook pro which has the 3000mb/s read speed PCIE and I do not notice any difference from a normal 500mb/s ssd. Sure files copies are faster however day to day loading apps and and boot time nothing really.

    500-600MBps vs 700-800MBps, on a smartphone does not matter to me

    Assuming of course you actually get 500-600MBps, whereas the UFS 2.0 storage they put in the S7 only got 250MB/sec.

    Course everyone once again completely ignores actually important metrics like random speeds, write speeds, and application speed ratings, because meh, headline sequential speeds are easier to compare even if largely meaningless...
