    UFS 2.0 it's known only on Samsung device so far and only on ARM platform.
    My guess is that Samsung for couple of years it want gone shares their technology with others as it is one of the key advantages over competitions.
    So Its impossible to see that technology on Windows on x86 architecture.

    But the mystery is how Apple manage to deliver such very high quality flash storage on their device using NVMe PCIe technology while MS/Intel can not.

    the iPhone 6s uses PCIe and NVMe instead of a UFS or eMMC storage solution.

    Wow that's impressive. It's clear how they did it:
    Obviously NAND designed with some TLC is going to perform better.

    The same most advanced flash storage technology is using also on iPad Pro while MS/Intel is 2-3 generation back on their proposal.

    Hope in S4 offer that kind of solution but I'm not giving more than 1% to happened.
    Maybe in 2 year with S5 or S6 if eventually not jump to Core M solution and native SSD support.

    I wonder if it's time for S4? Dang it's been a long wait .
    I need one with Verizon LTE . I'm sure they'll increase the storage capacity...ha ha ..

    Just curious... you know there is a very simple workaround online describing how to make the consumer LTE models of the Surface 3 work on Verizon networks, right?

    I think you just made Ships10's day. Since I have a perfectly good Surface 3, I am going to resist the temptation to get a Surface 4 on release day and will be ordering an LTE model instead. I am assuming that the chance is 0% that Microsoft has LTE Surface 4 models on release day, right?

    YES (0% chance), but as I noted over in the Surface Pro 4 thread this is in fact a great thing because I am now convinced the answer to buying ANY Surface device is wait until 3 MONTHS after the initial release (actually shipping) date...

    Well received today my second S3 and was really disaster and I'm shocked actually.
    For the first time in my life I'm getting brand new portable device with 1/3 less battery capacity than was design.:eek:
    WTF MS how can this be possible getting battery wear 33% out of the box on a brand new device lot number 1550 mid December 2015 production!!!:mad:

    Its totally madness.:(

    Take a look from the battery repot that I did few minutes after unboxing.

    [​IMG]

    My first unit back in May had 0% battery wear from day one and after 6 months using it never reached more than 4-5%.

    Also all of my Surface Pro the same things as my first S3 from May last year.

    I don't know what to think either defective battery or they sent me a refurbished device from supposed to be brand new as I paid for.

    Tomorrow preparation to sent it back to store.

    @alextrela182 What program are you using to test wear level? It looks like a powercfg report - and I sometimes wonder how accurate it is. Right now mine is reporting design capacity of 38,152 mWh but full charge capacity of 39,975 mWh :confused:
