Phone is Starting is Displayed During Boot
With the Android 9.0 (Pie) update, your phone will automatically get file-based encryption if it has a PIN, pattern, or password set up. During the boot process, the phone will display "Phone is starting..." and the screen may be blank for a few seconds while encryption is taking place.
However, if you feel it takes too long for your phone to start, you can disable the encryption to cut a few seconds off of the boot time.
