Because they are faster?

I doubt I'd do serious writing with an iPad (I have a Macbook for that), but I might want to use it to do some plotting, scene creation, note taking etc.

To add some possible noise to this point, my iPhone 7 syncs Scriv with DropBox approximately 3x faster than my iPad Air 2. No idea why.Silverdragon wrote:As far as speed is concerned, RAM and network speed are more important than processor speed.

Silverdragon, Thanks for the info and the clarifications, which I regret involved any sort of chastisement.Silverdragon wrote:I was chastised in a private message -- the iPhone 7 has 2GB and the iPhone 7 Plus has 3 GB. Assuming that you in fact have the 7 and not the 7 Plus, then in my days as a maintenance programmer I'd have been looking at Dropbox's algorithms *very* closely. Your significant speed-ups are the processor speed, increasing from 1.5 to 2.85 GHz, an increase in number of cores from 3 to 4, and some increase in RAM speed. This all points to a process that is more limited by processor speed than by network or storage speed which is a red flag. Network speed is so much slower that it should be the limiting factor, followed by storage speed.
Out of curiosity, is the speed-up more obvious in the "downloading file list" or in the actual file downloads?
