Apple is throwing its weight around by commanding a lot of production capacity for memory chips, leaving the competition in jitters.
Samsung promoted the Galaxy S8 featuring UFS 2.1 memory. Testers called out the company, finding UFS 2.0 speeds. It then hid the spec line from the public.
It's not surprising to hear Huawei P10 memory speed inconsistencies are caused by supply shortages, but the problem's "fix" is certainly disappointing.
Critics across social media are inferring from benchmarks and other evidence that Huawei is using different grades of RAM and flash storage chips.
