This is a video to show the boot time of the Nokia Lumia 800 against every version of iPhone (It’s hard to tell the difference between them).
There isn’t much significance to starting up quickly (other than not having to wait long if you’re one to turn their phone off in fear that silent might not be enough). These are the kind of tests I’ve been doing for a long while since my ancient S60 phones, mainly as a mark of progress (especially between firmwares). I appreciate quick boot times on my devices, e.g. laptop, if it’s not already in some kind of hibernate mode.
This video completes the boot time comparison made by iClarified with an additional contender: the Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone 7.5, which beats even the very last iPhone 5 in terms of boot time.
Please note: This video is a second version of another one published 3 days ago. It has been remade to fix a small fps conversion error present in the previous version (the iPhone part was treated as if it was 30 fps, when it was 24 fps). That involved it being displayed faster than it should, and therefore showing a wrong boot time measurement for the Lumia (which was displayed correctly, at 30 fps). Nokia Lumia 800 boots in 18 seconds, not 22.
That means that the difference with iPhone 5 is even greater !!!
