Google Nexus 10 tablet cold boot time in less than 16 seconds

1

Latest Nexus 10 tablet built by Samsung offers a very fine software integration by Google together with impressive specs, above all else (10.1″ display with 2560×1600 display, Exynos 5 Cortex-A15 processor running at 1.7 GHz and 2GB of RAM).
We thought it would be interesting to measure the tablet boot time, on a stock setup with latest firmware the timer stops before 16 seconds for a cold boot, pretty good !

Test conditions:
Latest Android 4.2 firmware build JOP40C from Sat Nov 10 2012
Stock system from a factory reset, no Apps installed
Wi-FI ON, Bluetooth & NFC OFF

Just as a comparison, knowing the following run on older hardware and architecture, our favorite ARCHOS tablets cold boot are taking

  • about 28 seconds on the ARCHOS 101 XS

  • about 30 seconds on the ARCHOS 101 G9 1.5 GHz model
