Hi All

So far I am happy with my shiny new S8 with no red tint yet :)
however, recent benchmark test is driving me a bit crazy, I think I am getting the slower UFS2.0 version of S8 instead 2.1, since in my recent benchmark test, it shows my speed is a lot slower compare to others' benchmark shown online.

see below is mine, only 500MB+

this is what I found of others' s8

I clearly remembered S8 is UFS2.1 as their spec and many reviewers have said the same.
I checked Samsung website spec page, it does not say anything now, however, I did an internet archive page check, it's clear that Samsung official site indicated UFS2.1 before 25 Apr, and remove it after that, are they mixing memory type as some others indicated?, more importantly, is it normal or should I ask for exchange ?

This is my results. I guess it's 2.1?

Have you checked any other app that may show version number or something?

The read/write iops are around 50% faster with ufs2.1, i wonder if exynos got the faster interface, need some more samples folks.

    Means 5 hrs of SOT? Hmmm might as well wait for note 8

    I get 5hrs on 36% of batt, so i can say 6hrs++ can be achieved easily
