Strange Results - memory read/write

If you look at the following results on a HTC One X - the memory results seem incorrect.

The write sequential speed is 5x faster than the read sequential speed (1.5GB/s v 292MB/s)

Surely this is wrong?
Never known any device that can write to memory faster than it can read.

    You're right. That is a strange result. I'm not familiar with any systems where the read speed and the write speed would be that different (especially in write speed's favor). I'll look into the results and let you know what I find out.

    It seems to be the case with every android phone.

    You never fixed this problem with the read sequential speeds for Androids appearing far slower than the write speeds?

    For Example HTC One X+
    Read Seq speed is 210MB/sec whilst write sequential is 1700MB/s.

    Ian -

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

    We're actively looking into this problem. I don't have anything to report yet but we do have some theories as to why this is happening that we need to test out. I will let you know as soon as we find anything out.

    Thank you for your patience.
