Today most smart phones use eMMC and SD card as storage devices. Storage performance improvement is one of the most important studies in the mobile phone industry today. Performance of many key mobile phone use cases like audio/video record/play, USB mass storage are linked to storage throughput. This paper investigated the cause of current storage performance bottleneck on the Android based smart phones and proposes an approach for storage throughput improvement by modifying the I/O architecture and device driver interface of the Linux kernel.
