    I had a HTC Inc. and it had a quick turn on feature.
    I love my S3 but when I turn it on in the morning after charging it seems like I am holding down the power button for a long time before I get the vibe indicator that it is about to turn on.
    Any ideas?

    why do you bother turning it off in the first place?

    doesn't require turning off the phone does it? Can't remember the last time i ever turned a phone off unless it was out of battery, in last 10 years. never seen any adverse effects of this.

    I know the Droid x added a sleep mode with one update. So it would of been a "quick on" in one sense.

    I just use Airplane mode if I don't want any calls or messages. Turning your phone off to charge it doesn't really give you any benefit to leaving it on while charging other than perhaps it charging a little bit faster.

    I had a Droid Incredible and there was an issue with it where you had to turn it off to get a full charge. The S3 doesn't appear to have that same problem, so I don't usually turn out off either.

    To answer your question though, no the phone doesn't have the 'Quick Boot' feature that your Inc. had.
