UFS adopts serial data transmission technology, so it can read and write data at the same time, which makes it have much higher data transmission efficiency than the original eMMC.

These data transfer speeds determine the speed at which mobile phones read or write content from storage, so they can affect the speed at which games or applications are loaded or the time it takes to copy video files to storage.
