Less than a year ago we celebrated the 1,000,000th benchmark. Now one year later we have 2,000,000 submitted scores. Donations are still very rare, but highly appreciated. And as always, you can grab a copy of this beautiful app for free, in the Google Play.
We just got a new Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and this device is very fast… and its internal flash storage is extremely fast – 223.53MB/s read speed, and 131.52MB/s write speed (see the screenshots below).
So very fast device, requires deserves one of the fastest SD cards in the world – SanDisk 32GB Extreme PRO microSDHC UHS-I Card (it has UHS speed class 3 (U3)). And if you put this microSD card into regular smartphone, it may not unleash its all power, because of slow/cheap SD card controller, but it exceeds anything we have seen before when put into the new Galaxy Note 4. Again, see the screenshots below, it can achieve super fast speed for the SD cards on the mobile device – 61.40MB/s read, and 47.84MB/s write speed (Advertised speeds: Read 95MB/s, write 90MB/s).
We released A1 SD Bench v1.0 on October 20, 2012. Then after about one year, a half-millionth benchmark was recorded. Now about 8 month later we have a another half million, that makes a total of 1,000,000 benchmarks submitted. Thank you all for your support, and especially some of you who donated a couple bucks.
