Tour vs Storm Start Up Time Test
This may just be me but I ran a startup test betweeen the the two. This may not be the most scientific of test but I am loving the Tours startup time. Here is how I ran the test:
Took the batter out of each phone and used my coaches stop watch. had my wife and son put the batters back in at the same time. Then I ran each phone separately with my wife putting the battery into each one and timed them. Lastly I put the battery in myself and ran the wife ran the stop watch. Here are my results.
Average Tour startup time to use: 2:17.05
Average Stomr startup time to use: 3:41.36
This is the average of 10 tests on each phone. In my case the Tour shaves almost a full minute off, I like.
Disclaimer: My Storm has some apps on it, and the Tour does not. Not sure how this effects the startup time. Maybe tomorrow I will wipe the Storm and run the test again.

That right there is what family is all about lol.
Sounds promising, I was always annoyed with how long it took the Storm to start up.
Heck I would take even 10 seconds shaved off the Storm start up time. Thanks for the post and thank the family for us
Yeah, once it took 5mins while at the FBR Open trying to show it off to some Big Whigs. It froze, I did a BP and 5 mins later, they were not very impressed.:aargh4:

I can get my Storm to start up in less than 2 minutes if I remove all apps on it.

You had your cell phone at the FBR Open? Thats a no-no

I have noticed much quicker start up times with my Tour vs Storm also.

I'm on FLW and the 101, I can literally walk to the tourney, and I do walk home from the birds nest if I have had too many.
I put the same apps on both phones this morning and the startup time difference was almost a minute and a half...actual time (run 5 times) is 1:24 difference.
Both phones have standard software out of the package and the following apps: Poynt, VyMal, GoogleMaps, Pandora, CaptureIt
