How fast is your boot time?

Just wondering. Mine takes 56 seconds from pressing the button to reaching the desktop. Too long, IMO. I'm asking because someone on another forum reckoned they had a Vodafone N95 that took 24 seconds. I can't believe the difference is that great!

Unbranded (was on Orange), v12.0.014

Mine is 28 seconds.
But everything can make it slower. Welcome logo/note, extra applications with auto startup.

28? That's quite a difference! After reaching the desktop, I opened Handy Taskman and saw nothing running (other than HT!), and the phone has 18mb of RAM available.

Any way to check which programs are set to run at startup?

I believe that V12 firmware adds to the startup time significantly, although there's not much you can do about that.

That's not a bad question. I've just timed mine and it takes 32 seconds. This is measured from the phone vibrating when the power button is held down, to everything appearing on the main screen (Including the date, standy buttons, calender entries etc).

I felt that the N95 boots up REALLY quickly, but maybe that's because I've had an N70 for a year beforehand, which was very slow. I've just timed my N70 booting up to prove it... 1 minute and 37 seconds!

If your device is a slow booter, check if you have anything from Psiloc installed. My N95 boots in 28 seconds, but it takes 62 with Psiloc cr@p installed. It's their DRM copy protection that's doing the harm. It even runs 24/7 when the phone is on too, checking you out every second... :(

I haven't got any Psiloc stuff installed on my phone. The only thing I can think of that may be slowing my phone down is Handy profiles - it seems to run in the background all the time, but doesn't show in the list of running apps.

I think I've cracked it. No, not my phone :-p

I took out my 4gb memory card and restarted the phone. This time it reached the desktop in 25 seconds. So, having the card fitted slowed my startup by 31 seconds - more than double! I guess it's because I installed my apps onto the card, so when the phone starts it reads the list of installed apps before it does anything else?

I wouldn't have thought it was that. I have a 6Gb card and I have all my apps installed on that, yet mine boots up in 32 secs.

i spose it depends on the apps, some probably will startup when the phone does

Just did a reset and re-installed my apps onto the phone instead of the card. Phone now starts in 34 seconds. Still slow, but it's better than it was. It's probably slowed down by Handy Profiles and Truphone running at startup.
