Today we answer the age old question...
What boots faster:
- a Librem 5 smartphone running PureOS (GNU/Linux)
- or a run of the mill Android phone
@purism To be fair: Was/Is the Librem 5 encrypted? (Android should be, by default.)
Ooh! Penguins! 😂
@purism I think my LG V20 takes 1 minute. I'll check!
@purism took me around 43 sekunds to start it uo and of cause it is still making things in the background so running slow in the beginning.
@purism That boot competition wasn't really fair... although my xperia z5 compact (2015) which is supposed to be fast, takes more than a minute... So i don't know...
@purism It would be better to have videos on peertube client as well.
@purism oneplus 7 pro is much faster than that, and it costs around the same
@purism Great example for comparing apples and oranges:
- completely different hardware
- different bootloaders
- one carrier-customized, one stock
- one with bloatware, one without
@purism thats great but when is the launch date?
@purism I don't really care about boot time, so long as it's not intentionally slow and stupid. As long as it's a device that just works like it's supposed to.
