    Hi

    Does device encryption slow down my BlackBerry Cassic?
    It feels much slower when downloading and installing apps from amazon appstore compared to not encrypted

    Encryption can slow things down due to the process where as new data is being encrypted as it is saved and then unencrypted as the data is retrieved. Speed depends upon processor power, processing space available to work with, size of data being worked with as well as the encryption software sophistication.

    Installing apps from amazon with encryption on takes few minutes and encryption off only few seconds.
    I love everything on my BlackBerry Classic the size the feel etc...please BlackBerry make one with top notch hardware and an extra chip which is for more encryption speed.

    Unless you're worried about a forensic examination of your BlackBerry flash memory, there is no need to use encryption on the device. A password is more than sufficient.

    Encrypting your SD card makes sense to me though, as it can be removed. I don't do it personally as I don't store sensitive information on it.

    I haven't noticed any significant drop in speed if any at all. I have both the device and SD encrypted.

    In all day usage there is not much slowing down but like I said installing apps took forever...

    This could very well be and I don't doubt you. I switched on encryption some time ago, so can't remember to make a comparison.

    They did. It's called the Passport. Mine is flying on 10.3.2 with encryption on. I only encrypt my device but leave my SD Un encrypted in case the device has a failure.

    On Z30 I see no speed variation in doing any tasks. I don't agree with your claim and I'm on BES10. I'd say to microsd you'd see a difference.

    Warning do NOT encrypt your Micro SD card. If you format your device or replace it that encrypted MSD will no longer work!!

    BlackBerry, accept no substitute nor compromise!

    Bro I had the passport 3 times but never could get warm with it because of its size.
    The classic formfactor is perfect.
    And the nexus 6 with snappy 805 had problems with speed due to encryption.

    That's what makes BlackBerry special. They use a special encryption chip along with BB10 so encryption is as fast and efficient as possible. Started back with BlackBerry OS. (the downside is longer boot times)

    I have encryption turned on to my Classic. I haven't noticed a delay or issue, but to be completely honest, I don't download apps that often for it to be an issue I'd note.
