How to find out if your Huawei P10 has the slower storage
Earlier reports from China that users were getting eMMC 5.1 memory speeds on their Huawei P10 devices were confirmed by a Huawei executive. Huawei Business Group CEO Richard Yu admitted that they used a mix of eMMC and UFS memory chips inside the P10. This is mainly due to a shortage in supply of the faster UFS 2.0 chips.
UFS is the new type of storage being used in smartphones and they are significantly faster than the older and cheaper eMMC chips. eMMC storage typically only gets about 250MB/s sequential read speeds while UFS 2.0 can go from 500MB/s to 750MB/s. So if you’re transferring a ton of photos and 4K videos in your phone, this could be noticeable.
To find out if you’re one of the lucky owners of the P10 with the faster UFS 2.0 storage, just download and install AndroBench in the Google Play Store and run the benchmarks. You should get results just like the one below.
If you get scores north of 500MB/s second, then you’re in luck.
Our unit of the P10 got a score of 730MB/s. That’s fast!
