Video: Start up times, Nokia N9 vs Nokia Lumia 800 (+ vs iPhone 4S)

| December 11, 2011 | 98 Replies

This is a test I did with my previous Nokias, fascinated by what each software update may have been doing regarding boot up times, updates not always guaranteed to bring faster start up (sometimes it might be slower).

I’ve mentioned before that the Lumia 800 has a quick start up time but it’s not really one I’ve tested to see precisely how quick. Adrianisen did a couple of videos comparing the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia N9 with an iPhone 4S.

I JUST WANTED TO ADD, THAT THE MOMENT YOU SEE TILES, THE LUMIA 800 IS USABLE. There’s nothing else waiting to load. It is Windows Phone not Windows PC. The Lumia 800 did superbly, clocked at 14 seconds by his timing. The N9 was clocked in at 37 seconds. Not to shabby either.  iPhone 4S is improving, I remember post 1 minute boot up times before from older iPhones, now it was set in at 30/26 seconds. In my own tests that is around 19 seconds for my Lumia 800 and 64 seconds for the Nokia N9. Based on how I time it, I clock his Lumia 800 at 19 seconds ( Start at 1:14 end at 1:33).

In the time it takes the Nokia N9 to start up once, I could comfortably start the Lumia 800 twice. What’s the significance of this? Nothing really. They’re just start up times. For most people that leave their phones on all the time, it won’t mean much. For some that like to turn their phones off when not in use, it’s nicer to have a little bit less of a wait in your hands but again, nothing really severe. What’s the start up time on your phone (and firmware?)
