Is the 4.3 bright Verizon boot screen really a battery drainer?

Novice

The notion that Verizon's 4.3 startup logo screen puts a big drain on the S III battery, purportedly because it's so bright, is unsupported. Anyone easily can test this by writing down the current state of the battery charge percentage (be it 100% or 50%), power off, wait 30 seconds or so, power up allowing all homepage apps to fully display, open System Settings and scroll down to Battery, tap this settings option and read the battery charge percentage listed. If your simple test is the same as several tests that I've conducted, the post-powerup battery percentage will be exactly the same as the pre-powerdown battery percentage. The 4.3 logo screen is bright, but does not contribute to any battery drainage as confirmed by every test that I've conducted.

how big of a draw can it really be, it's only on for 10 sec, then continues to the home screen.
