The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge make use of a new Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standard for its storage modules. This promises to offer speeds identical to SSDs, thus making data transfer super quick. A new AndroBench benchmark comparison tells us exactly how fast this new storage standard is.
The HS-G2 variant of UFS 2.0 has speeds of up to 725MB/s while the HS-G3 can output speeds of up to 1.45GB/s. UFS 2.0 also permits simultaneous reading and writing, which makes functionality even smoother than usual. In comparison, the current crop of devices which use the eMMC 5.1 standard can only reach peak read speeds of 250 MB/s and a write speed of 125 MB/s.
This combined by the GDDR4 RAM used on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge makes for a very pleasurable experience for the users. Do you plan on getting the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge?
