    I've seen so many problems with encryption, not performance-wise but to do with lost data (priceless pictures and video), that I say use encryption with extreme caution. In this case, you have no choice but to use encryption and that to me, spells great potential trouble for people and their data.

    But to know that it also impacts performance by such a great margin makes me happy I got the Turbo with KitKat and that if Encryption should come with the update at least I can reverse it.

    You wouldn't. It looks like it is a Nexus 6 and 9 issue.

    All I can say that phone was flying when I played with it yesterday... We shall see when I get hands on.. XDA has a thread on turning it off.. Still early stages...

    So it's a lollipop issue? I have been encrypted in KitKat and previously Jellybean as well with no side effects.

    It is affecting only the Nexus 6 and 9 Lollipop. Nexus 4 and 5 are not affected. So far the preview of Lollipop on the GNOTE 3 has not shown any issues.

    Bk, think once we truly get it in hand and use it daily we will see. But playing with it at a store is not going to give you the full picture.

    Foxkat, remember android on the software side have not been known for its encrypted security which is why when you turn it on you notice issues. Google is trying to fix the issue on their side and they are at a point where they have to. With more businesses turning to galaxies and even droids the device needs to be able to eventually provide the same security known with blackberries. Google is working with the issue and I do not think we will see it perform buttery smooth until probably 5.1 lollipop. There is obviously more coding that needs to be worked out.

    It surprises me that Google devices, of all devices, would have this issue. Their encryption has been working great for years on Sammy devices.

    I wonder what it is that they changed?

    Could it be something that Motorola added?

    The price we pay for security...

    It'll be interesting to see if an update fixes this, or if xda can crack the code for people to shut it off.

    When they advertised the phone and lollipop, I thought they said that encryption was "on by default," which led me to believe it could be turned off if the user wanted to. Strange that they would take that option out of the user's hands. Seems like a simple popup warning you that it's less secure/multiple "Are you sure?" pages would've done the trick to cover google's rear...

    The only reason Google defaulted it was so that they could equal Apple.
