    So who out there is using the storage encryption? If you are using it does it have any noticeable affect on speed or battery life? Also can you simply turn it off and be unencrypted or once it's on it's on?

    Depends on why it is turned on. If it is because you set up a corporate email account that requires it, then no. The admin of the exchange server owns that device if you turn it on. They can lock you out of your phone, or wipe the phone's contents from remote, both the SD card and the internal storage. You cannot change any of those settings once enabled, only they can. All you can do is delete the email account and then you can remove the encryption.

    While the device is encrypted, you can no longer capture video at 1080p. It limits you to 720p. Also, anything that you download to the device, or any pic or video that you shoot while it is encrypted, cannot be transferred to a PC and viewed. You can only view those items on the phone itself, or you can email them. Copying them over the USB cable copies encrypted files to the PC, that the PC cannot access.

    And if you turn off encryption, any of those files that were created during the period of time that the device was encrypted, will REMAIN encrypted and not usable on other devices unless transferred by email, which is not practical for large videos and stuff.

    So my advice, is that unless you HAVE to have it, don't use it. More limitations and headaches than it is worth...
