A phone might have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, but many are unaware that there are various types of these chips and they all perform differently. Some Huawei P10 users have learned that the hard way as there looks to be some hardware discrepancies.
For comparison, some P10 users have reported reaching over 700 MBps, others can't ever cross the 300 MBps boundary in storage benchmarks, which is a huge difference. Apparently the following six possible combinations of components are available on the market:
- LPDDR3 + eMMC 5.1
- LPDDR3 + UFS 2.0
- LPDDR3 + UFS 2.1
- LPDDR4 + eMMC 5.1
- LPDDR4 + UFS 2.0
- LPDDR4 + UFS 2.1
The eMMC option is the worst option you could get and apparently it can be found on 128 GB storage model and the best would be the UFS 2.1. For now, there is no way to find out about the chips before testing the phone.
