I'm not saying it is unusable that it takes a half-second. I'm saying my
phone has 4-times as many CPUs, running over 100-times as fast, with
2000-times the RAM, and executing an OS designed from the start to be
for portable use...yet it takes longer to wake up.
This is a crazy amount of computer power, mostly being squandered going
in and out of a zillion layers of code. Imagine what lean code could do
with that hardware... (For a start, get by with a lot less hardware, and
so longer battery life.)
But Google's Calendar app can't reliably give me notifications of events...
(Oddly, it seems to work better if I say "send me an e-mail, too", then I'll
probably get the regular on-device notification.)
