The iPhone 15 Pro Max and Galaxy S24 Ultra have different sets of hardware. One key difference between them is that Apple’s flagship utilizes NVMe storage, whereas Samsung opted for UFS 4.0 for its latest premium smartphone. This difference appears to be in favor of Samsung.
According to a storage benchmark result shared by @sakitechonline, the Galaxy S24 Ultra beats the iPhone 15 Pro Max by offering up to 75% faster transfer speeds. To be precise, Jazz Disk Bench shows Samsung’s latest flagship can offer 2547.46 MB/s of sequential read speed, while Apple’s high-end smartphone can deliver 1450.42 MB/s.
That means the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra can offer about 1.75 times faster performance in hat is tests. The difference in the sequential write speed isn’t as high as the read speed, but it’s still notable. More specifically, the benchmark shows the S24U can offer 1442.25 MB/s, whereas the iPhone 15 Pro Max offers 1257.99 MB/s.
The story is pretty much the same for the random 4K transfer speed test, where the Galaxy S24 Ultra took the lead with much better read and write speeds. Also, the UFS storage inside Samsung’s flagship has reasonably lower latency. As you might know, lower storage latency means faster data access. You can check the numbers out from the image attached below.
In a real-life scenario, all these differences would mean a smoother UI experience, better app loading times, and faster file transfers on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. But just because the iPhone 15 Pro Max (128 GB curr. $1,369.99 on Amazon) is behind, it doesn’t mean the experience is clunky on the device. It’s still fast in all of the real-world aspects mentioned.
