    I saw this video YouTube - HTC Desire HD vs iPhone 4 Startvorgang and wondered how on earth this phone started so quickly [about 5 seconds] and wondered how quickly other peoples phones start up.

    If you have a lock on the phone how long until you get to the lock?

    If you don't have a lock how long until it loads up so you can slide from screen to screen?

    Not sure if you realised but that's the Desire HD in the video, not the Desire.

    I'm pretty sure the Desire HD starts up so quickly because it only goes into hibernation mode when you turn it off, not actually shutting down properly. I think if you removed the battery and then replaced it it would take longer to start up.

    I could be wrong though..

    That's not a Desire. Surely if you have the phone you noticed that it looks totally different? :confused: And it does say Desire HD in the title of the video too.

    Mystery solved. :p

    I agree, didn't look like it was completely switched off, it'll never be able to load that quickly.

    Ooops!! Mystery solved indeed!! I must be even more daft because they look identical. What differences am I supposed to see apart from size?

    I'm going to guess the Desire HD will be "on" in the background as in hibernation like Blackberries, even when you power it off it's still on internally so it boots up quick. I bet when you pull the battery and put it back in, it'll have a normal bootup time.

    The Home, Menu, Back and Search button aren't hard key buttons but touchscreen buttons.

    + there's a huge speaker going across of the DHD, whereas the Desire has a tiny speaker above the HTC logo.

    If you think that I doubt you have seen a Desire before. The Desire and the Desire HD look worlds apart. :confused:

    One thing that blackberries didnt do well though, is returning to on from the "off" state. Or rather shall I say they do it too well?!

    My 9000, you could almost blow on the power button and it would turn back on. When I worked in a Mobile phone restricted area, I had to remove the battery as the slightest knock in my bag and it was on again

    LOL Blackberries need it, doing battery pulls are no fun at all (need half the time with shitty memory management) since Storms, Curves and Pearls take 8 minutes to boot.

    Doesn't the Desire HD run the new Sense? That's possibly why it starts so quick...new sense's boot time is faaaaaaast.

    Sense doesn't really boot. It's just a user interface o.top.of android. Mo matter how good the new sense is, it can't affect the boot time like that as its android loading that takes the time.

    I don't have sense at all but my desire boots the same as it did with sense
