To complement powerful processors and increasing RAM, your next smartphone needs fast onboard storage. Here are some smartphones which offer that with UFS 2.1.

When evaluating a smartphone’s performance based on speed, the focus generally lies on the processor and the RAM. However, your smartphone’s onboard storage also affects the time it takes to open up your favourite apps, games and files. UFS 2.1 is a high-speed storage type that can offer a maximum bandwidth of up to 1200MB/s for smartphones. This can help reduce lag and load times significantly, ensuring that the storage is not a bottleneck for the capabilities of your smartphone.
