My Galaxy Nexus 4.0.2 takes over three minutes to boot. Is this normal? Is it supposed to take this long to boot? Why does it take so long?

Shouldn't take that long... have you thought about trying a factory reset? –  Bryan Denny Apr 25 '12 at 13:07
    
This is the phone I use every day and without a better reason that just trying a factory reset it is to much of a hassle. I will however try the factory reset if there is a problem that only can be solved that way. There are lots of stuff that needs to be downloaded, set-up and re synced. –  Anders Apr 26 '12 at 21:03

My Galaxy Nexus (I9250, GSM version) with Android 4.02 definitely doesn't take that long to boot.

Just switched mine off to test, and from off it takes just under a minute to get to the SIM card PIN unlock code screen (and after entering my PIN it goes straight to the pattern lock with my normal wallpaper).

Then it must be something wrong with my phone? –  Anders Apr 24 '12 at 15:41

You may have encrypted your phone contents. Both of my phones take a lot longer to boot since having to decrypt on start-up.
