Yeah, read around a bit more, and it's not a fixable problem. The phone is designed to go into deep sleep mode after the screen is off for a few seconds, so when you hit the power button, the CPU needs to wake up, causing the delay. You can switch the power button to a soft power off, which solves the problem, but cuts your battery time in half
So phone is factory reset and I'm calling in the RMA now. I'm not paying $300 for a phone that doesn't even turn on when I push the power button! Seems the glaring problems with Android phones still haven't been worked out yet, you'd assume ONE of the manufacturers would figure out how to make a problem free phone by now.
Same here. Personally, I don't feel this minor issue is worth returning the phone. It is still a dynamite phone! For me, the screen always turns on immediately.
But.. twice now, the phone has just refused to turn back on at all requiring a battery pull. I'm not sure the cause, but it may be related to Agat's custom recovery and kernel. I'll see if it is fixed once a new kernel and CWM are built for the phone.
I have never owned a phone that hasn't occasionally needed a battery pull, but I hope it doesn't persist. I agree, it is annoying.
That's actually cosidered a problem with your device, if the phone is not oging into deep sleep mode you have a problem with the wake lock function. Staring at a blakc screen for 3 seconds after you push the power button is an actual feature of the device.
So far, mine is a perfect dream
Glad you like it. Like I said, for $300, I want a phone that turns on when I push the power button, not one that thinks about it a while first.
If a ROM comes out that fixes the issue, I'll buy the phone again then.
Ok, I ran the full benchmark test on both phones, and here's what I came up with....
Looks like they are about the same. They are the same phone so there is no surprise there. I think your wife's might be a bit slower because she probably has more apps/data on it. I think the screen on delay is present on all phones with ICS because I've even read that people in the Sprint version have the delay.
I'm definitely the one with more apps and data. Hers is just a phone as far as how she uses it. :-) she is using stock launcher and I use go launcher but don't think that makes a difference. I'll do it again after a fresh power up on both just for sng's
