Assuming a decent cable then my Nexus5 will do that when switched off, and almost as quickly in airplane mode. With a crap cable my Nexus5 will take 6 hours when switched off. Apple seem to have better control over how they charge, and the cables, as my previous iPhone5 would nearly always recharge in that time no matter what. I much prefer the Nexus though (and I'm generally an Apple-first guy... prize my Macbook Pro off me at your peril...)

I suppose turning a Mac on with Command+Option+R pressed down is a little quirky. Not sure of many other machines that will let you reinstall the the OS completely from the Internet even after a hard drive replacement so easily though. And 'update all' on a Linux distro typically updates far more than the operating system - stuff breaks all the time when updating applications on any platform.
