A new video confirms previous reports that the 32GB iPhone 7 has 8X slower write speeds than the 128GB and 256GB models.

Unbox Therapy demonstrates a benchmark and real world test of write speeds on a 32GB and 256GB iPhone 7. The benchmark found that the 256GB model was able to write data at 341 MB/s; whereas, the 32GB was only able to write data at 42 MB/s.

In the real world test, a 4.2GB video took 2 minutes 34 seconds to write to the 256GB model and 3 minutes and 40 seconds to write to the 32GB model.

Oh please! This is such a non issue in the real world application. Make sure both devices have the same free space before you run the test. Plus use smaller files because in real life, what huge file will one be transferring on a 32 GB phone anyway? And these are write speeds. The 32 GB phone's write speeds are plenty enough for the typical writes that would be needed in real world usage. Remember that these are just speed tests that aren't a reflection of real world usage. It's like having a 10 lane highway vs a 5 lane highway but you only typically have 3 cars on the road. So what if you have 10 lanes? You're not even reaching that limit.

Yes cause it is TLC, meaning that you need more layer to write faster or more plane. It is common sense. Research TLC NAND technology. the lower of the dye and lower of the capacity means slower write, but read will be the same but the more destiny you have, the faster it is cause of TLC Technology. MLC technology is the same way but in the beginning MLC can already write 3x faster then TLC technology.
