I'm interested in how fast other phones boot up. I know my old HTC Magic could take up to 90 seconds or more to get going. The Nexus One was faster, but still took over 30 seconds...often more. 

How does your phone compare? Videos would be cool...especially if you have customised the animations (as a bonus). :-) 

Here is a video I just made of the HTC Sensation booting up alongside another phone running a stopwatch app.



UPDATE: As suggested by NzBeagle, here is a video of a cold start after a battery pull. Quite a difference. see for yourself. Make sure you watched the top vid first. :-)

What counts as booting up?

For example my U8150 with custom rom takes ~100 seconds to get to the some screen but it isn't really usable for another 120 seconds as it loads widgets/start up items.

I understand. The SG-S is the same.

So far, with a warm boot (no battery pull) the HTC Sensation, once you get to the lock screen, everything I've tried afterward, so far, is ready to go. It's up. I foreshadow that in the first vid because i had already been surprised by how ready everything is so soon after the lock screen appears. Basically, you can open it immediately and it;s all there....ready.

Samsung SGS2 pulled the battery around 25 seconds, without pulling the battery still 25secs. Also as soon as it came up I opened Handcent SMS to see it was in fact responding. Running stock firmware.

My iDEOS X5 took maybe a couple of minutes for a cold start, seemed incredibly slow, my SGS2 takes a third or maybe even a quarter of the time

On a full boot the SGSII is faster by all accounts, obviously on fast boot the Sensation wins, because it has fast boot (unfair advantage!).

it took me less than 40 seconds to cold boot my HTC Trophy, slide up the screen and enter 4 digit PIN, and start up email and look at a email that had just been delivered :P

You can get that on desires to the "fast boot function" depending on what ROM you use. Im not sure how it works but i dont think its a permanent thing

Crappy WP7, we don't care about your locked down OS that takes XX to boot. We are talking about Android which varies with each setup due to customisations etc.

Go troll elsewhere (coming from me which just trolled a iOS forum)

It's my emergency backup in case any family member trashes their phone. It currently has a 2Degrees SIM in it. At $149 from the Warehouse (including SIM), I couldn't resist. :-)  

Makes a great stop watch, too. Yeah.

102 days.  I thought it was beneficial to reboot your phone every once and a while to clear out the dross.

I tried my DesireHD (fastboot enabled) and it starts up pretty much the same time as the Sensation in the video.  The difference being mine jumps straight to my home/lock screen rather than transitioning through the Telecom splashscreen.  Still operational in around the same time.  Fast boot can be turned off in settings.  There's no way with the flimsy battery cover that the DHD has that I make a habit of pulling the battery.
