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.

Battery life!!!!!
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.

I pulled it off the cradle at 7:30AM and it is now a bit after 10PM.
The battery is at 52 percent. This is a huge improvement.
No other changes have made a noticeable difference until now.
I used the phone normally all day, and ran quite a few benchmarks throughout the day. Played a few rounds of usual.

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.

Removal of the following seems to have improved my battery life:
DRM Protected Storage
PVMtpServiceStart 1.0
PVWmdrmService 1.0
