    Question Does performance of a phone SSD slow down like a computer SSD when full?

    It is commonly known that SSDs perform best when 10-15% of the space is empty. Does this rule also affect phone SSDs? I am looking to speed up my Samsung Galaxy S7 and my internal storage is almost full.

    Question Different reading speeds depending on machine

    So I can't wrap this around my head, but I have a laptop that reads the HDD at around 60-70mb/s (used a boot usb to test) but when I did the same test on a desktop by plugging in the HDD from the laptop, the speed I was getting was 110-120mb/s. Could this be bottlenecked due to cpu?

    [SOLVED] Do ssds have big differences in speed?

    I was looking around on pc part picker for an SSD, and I saw vast differences in prices for the same amount of storage. The Samsung - 860 Evo 500 GB is about $77, but the Mushkin - Source 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive is only $55. Can SSDs have a big difference in speed? Thanks in advance.
