I know the original Neo MT15i is not a super top of the line phone, but neither is it a budget phone. So when I get a startup time of 40 seconds without root I wonder if it is normal? In general I find the phone is a bit slow to react and launch apps as well (immensly slow compared to my girlfriend's Galaxy SII)
Using Android 2.3.4 / carrier 3Three - phone locked to carrier
The startup sequence approx is as follows:
after a 10 second black screen the text Sony Ericsson appears
after 24 seconds the SonyEricsson logotype swoosh animation appears
after 31 seconds the carrier logo appears, and
the locked homescreen appears after a total of 40 seconds.
I have seen videos on youtube where they boot the Neo in literally just a few seconds and the SonyEricsson logotype animation flies by in a second. Compared to mine it's like they were running an SSD and I was still on a 7200RPM HDD.
Is this performance according to standard for this phone?
Mine also booting in 40 seconds (rooted,ICS 4.0.3).I think that is a matter of how many applications you have installed in phone memory. However,you can't compare a dual core with a single core,it's very clear that Galaxy S 2 it's much faster than Neo.
Mine takes 30 seconds for the lockscreen to appear straight after pressing the power button
I use stock .62 gingerbread firmware.
I suggest you to:
*Root phone and delete all useless system apps
*Clear app cache regularly - I use this app, to clean everything. Atleast once a week
*Clean junk from SD card, like app cache files, or old app files, etc.
After doing this, measure the time and see how long it takes to boot.
Noob question but, wouldn't deleting the bootanimation.zip speed it up ??
that be like a less 10minutes
And CM7 has an option ~
no need to delete it, you can just edit it(txt file inside) so that it runs only one time.
I'm not sure if phone waits till the end of run then continue to boot, or it cuts animation in the middle of run. hm..
I always use one run animations, so I don't know if it cut's or not
