    Fastboot is exactly what it sounds like. A Faster way to boot. Advantages: Speed. Disadvantages: its said that some applications don't run right with it on.

    Look at it like this. If there were NO disadvantages to "Fast Boot", the phone would normally boot up in this mode. Why would they make it boot slower for no reason? Not being sarcastic. Just applying some basic reasoning.

    I reboot at least every other day, sometimes daily. Not a big deal. I do it when I don't need to use the phone. I figure it keeps things running smoothly. It also clears the cache.
