Top 8 Phones With Fastest Boot Time (MSP Tested)  


Does slow boot-up irritate you the most? If the answer is yes, you are in luck. In this article, we have compiled a list of the fastest booting devices. We tested over 25 phones and selected the top 8 with the fastest boot time. We only included phones that could boot up in under 20 seconds.

How Do We Conduct the Test?

To compare phones fairly, we used a standardised test. Each phone was fully charged, reset to factory settings, and timed with a stopwatch from the power button press to the home screen display. So, without further ado, let’s jump straight in!

Lava Blaze Curve 5G

Surprisingly, the Lava Blaze Curve 5G leads the pack with an impressive boot time of just 10.34 seconds. This remarkable performance makes it an ideal choice for users prioritising quick access to their devices.

Infinix GT 20 Pro

The latest entrant from the house of Infinix, the GT 20 Pro, was able to secure second place. It can boot up and reach the home screen in 16.79 seconds. It’s an interesting offering from the company with unique gaming aesthetics clubbed with a few RGB lights at the back.

OnePlus 12

OnePlus’s latest flagship offering booted up in 17.39 seconds, securing the third spot on the list. It is powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, and OnePlus recently unveiled its special Glacial White edition in India.

Poco F6

Poco devices are always known for offering speed and performance for that sweet flagship killer price point. This is carried forward with the Poco F6, too. It was able to sprint towards the home screen in 18.29 seconds. It also features Snapdragon’s 8 Gen SoC paired with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.

Vivo X100 Pro

This is Vivo’s top-of-the-line offering, usually presided over for its camera capabilities. However, during our test, the latest Vivo X100 Pro can start in just 18.63 seconds. Unlike other flagships, Vivo likes to opt for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s competitor, the Dimensity 9300 chipset.

OnePlus 11R

Despite being over a year old, the OnePlus 11R seems to have held its ground quite well in 2024. It was able to boot up in 18.89 seconds. The device also made its way to our Top Fastest Charging Phones list, taking just 36 minutes to go from zero to hero (100%).

Motorola Edge 50 Fusion

The Motorola Edge 50 Fusion clocks in at 18.89 seconds. It was launched in May of this year and almost immediately became the favourite device of Motorola fans and tech enthusiasts, thanks to its price-to-performance ratio.

Realme GT 6T

Last but not least is the beast from Realme. With all the bells and whistles, it reached the home screen in 19.59 seconds. While slightly slower than its competitors, it’s still one of the most potent phones one can buy, all thanks to its Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 SoC, 12GB RAM, and a whopping brightness of 6000 nits.

Other Worthy Contenders

Many phones were unable to boot up in under 20 seconds but managed to reach the home screen in under 30 seconds. So here are the worthy contenders that were able to boot up within the 30-second mark.
