    Has anyone encrypted your turbo? Could you please tell me how it effects performance etc. My dell venue is encrypted and there seems to be no downside.

    I personally haven't done it ever on any device I've had. I've heard it affects performance but I guess that's all I can say about it.

    I have a Droid Maxx, the phone a year older than the Turbo with the almost the same 4.4.4 build, encrypted. You wouldn't notice the difference in performance between it encrypted and unencrypted - it runs just fine. Of course the only difference you notice is on boot up, when you have to unlock the encryption key with your PIN or password, and you must use PIN, password, or NFC unlock methods (the NFC has a PIN or passphrase fallback). Otherwise, there is no discernible difference.

    I've had my turbo encrypted since I got it. Never had issues at all.

    I should have done it the day I bought it before setting it up. Im paranoid because isnt there a message that says dont let the phone power off while its in the encryption process or else you can loose all data or something like that? Im scared to do it with my phone set up perfect

    Just make sure your charged up, if you're really worried, charge it and keep it plugged in while going through the encryption process. That's what I do.

    As always good, useful information to my questions. Thank you. So after I update to Lollipop next week and after a factory reset to get a clean install I will encrypt. Just seems to be a little bit safer. I will post after to update how it went. Again thanks for the replies.
