why does it take so long for Verizon Note 2 to lock on to GPS?

I placed all of my phones and tablets next to each other for this test.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus - 1.2 seconds
Verizon Galaxy Note 2 - 5.6 seconds
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0(Wifi-only) - 0.3 seconds
Verizon Droid Charge - 1.7 seconds
iPad 2 64GB 3G/Wifi - 1.1 seconds
Verizon HTC Rezound - 1.6 seconds

I repeated this test over and over... and even tried it outdoors.. all results were about the same.

Is this normal?

I hope you realize how spoiled we are. It was just a few years ago that I had standalone GPS units that would take minutes to lock on. :)

true... :) but my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet(wifi-only) can lock on in 0.3 seconds and
it's also made by Samsung. Not to mention that it was only $149 from Amazon when I bought it.
