  • Early benchmark results have revealed the UFS 3.0 storage on the Galaxy Note 10 is faster than the OnePlus 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Fold.

  • When compared to the Galaxy S10 series, the performance differential is significant.

Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are the company's first smartphones to ship with UFS 3.0 storage, which brings significantly faster transfers compared to UFS 2.1. Early storage benchmark results show the UFS 3.0 solution on the Galaxy Note 10 is not only significantly faster than the Galaxy S10 series but also the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Even though both the Galaxy Note 10 and OnePlus 7 Pro use the same UFS 3.0 storage solution, the Galaxy Note 10 is faster due to the use of a new file system. As noted by SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ use the F2FS file system instead of EXT4 that most Android phones use.

Storage benchmark results for the Galaxy Note 10, OnePlus 7 Pro, and Galaxy Fold by tipster Ice Universe show that Samsung's flagship has a clear lead over rivals when it comes to random write and SQLite speeds. Sequential read and write speeds are faster as well, although the difference isn't as significant.
