iPhone takes a while to come back on after going down to 0%

I've noticed my iPhone sometimes takes a while to come back on when charging after going down to 0%. Is that normal, or should it be able to power back up straight away?

It's normal. It takes a while to charge a dead battery.

Anywhere between 5-10 minutes before it comes back on.

Try not to let the battery deplete all the way.

Yep, absolutely normal. And not just on iPhones. Some devices can take even longer. AFAIK, the first Xperia Mini was amongst the worst. When all the way down to zero, it could take up to 30 minutes on the charger before you'd see any life sign (including the charging LED - which confused and scared a lot of users)
