From the vibration......I see the unlock screen in 33 seconds.
From an "off" state, I made contact with the power button at exactly zero seconds on my clock. The unlock screen appears at 35 seconds.
Not much different from yours.
The last three things I removed have made a HUGE difference in power usage.
My battery is normally down to 30 percent or less when I arrive home after a full work day(7:30AM to about 5:30PM).....without charging it since I grabbed the phone off the cradle in the morning. It is often less than 20 percent.

The battery is at 52 percent. This is a huge improvement.
No other changes have made a noticeable difference until now.

I also noticed that "Android System" now accounts for a smaller percentage of power consumed since unplugged in the "Battery Use" tool in the "About phone" menu.
