A method for data storage includes storing data in analog memory cells by programming the memory cells with respective analog input values. After storing the data, respective analog output values are read from the memory cells using multiple read thresholds, which define multiple ranges of the analog output values. Respective numbers of read errors in the data, corresponding to the analog output values falling in the ranges, are assessed. The stored data is recovered based on respective numbers of the read errors assessed in the ranges.
