    Hey guys just wondering... Been reading lot of articles about the 32gb is 8xslower than the 256gb in terms of write speed. Has anyone complained to apple? Any one exchange the phone?

    128GB SSDs in rMBPs are slower than the higher capacity SSDs.

    Did Apple promise a certain read/write speed for the flash memory on the iPhone 7?

    I am curious about this. What about the 128? Is it also slower than the 256?

    owning apple shares or just being a real fanboy?

    anyway.. i quess most of customers doesnt care or know/understand. and then the question - does it affect in a real life? no, it doesnt. you are not going to write huge files to the ssd all the time.

    This. I feel like the only time you would really notice the difference is when editing video or batch editing photos. And, if you're into doing that sort of thing on your phone, you probably got a higher capacity anyway since 32 GB isn't enough for that. For smaller files like apps, the difference will be on the order of a couple of seconds. Are you really going to return a phone over that? Keep in mind the higher capacities are also more expensive.

    Stop watching videos that really do not affect anyone. That video was only to generate clicks for him. The 16GB was slower than the 64/128GB and there was not a mass effort to return those. The 16GB was the most popular. The speed limit is with the SSD, nothing Apple did.

    also someone already posted that they did whatever speed test multiple times and got different results. so those tests aren't very accurate. that video was just clickbait.

    Funny thing is, nobody here posted about it being slower, until some site published their findings. I guess nobody notices it is 'slower' until it's pointed out. They were happy with the performance, until they were told they could be unhappy with it.

    That said, I'd totally trade up :)

    Nah, the only reason to upgrade would be if you need the storage space. You probably wouldn't recognize the difference at speeds anyways. It's a moot point.

    It's only slower when saving to the drive. Reading from which is the main thing it's still fast!

    What? I'm not sure where you got that. I'm asking where Apple published the read write speeds. If they've actually promised and aren't delivering, I get it.

    I do agree with this.

    No, and they never will. They aren't spec whores like some manufacturers.

    Got the 32 and I'm sticking with it. Those articles can't make me change my decision. You will not notice the speed difference with everyday use.

    This. I don't use my phone that intensely so be stressing over it, just calls, text, emails, and apps.

    All the video showed was that it is faster to transfer a 4.2GB video file to a 256GB over the 32GB. Outside of that, I don't think there were any other differences. Apps won't load faster or have better performance.

    Also, If you need to transfer 4.2GB video files consistently, then I would say that 32GB is probably not enough storage space for you to begin with.

    I went from 7 32 to 7+ 128 because i dont want to manage storage,

    added write speed is a benefit too i was aware of too though, and expected since it was the same for 16 to 64 essentially in prior years

    reads are more important imo, but writes are nice too haha

    If my data footprint was way less than 32 and i didnt have to manage/worry, no I wouldnt get 128 just for that-- I got a 32gb 9.7 pro and pretty sure its same deal. i use that one to mostly browse
