    Hello everyone! I want to encrypt my device using the option on the settings but im concerned about the battery life. It is true that encryption destroys ur battery life?

    It can take an impact on the battery life yes, as the device needs to work more to decrypt and encrypt the data, resulting in more read/write to the memory and more cpu usage

    Destroys battery life? I would strongly disagree with that. Card and device.

    How could it not? Encryption is extra work.
    But it doesn't noticeably affect battery life in practice.
    Use encryption, it's important.

    Thanks! I have enabled encryption a month ago and somewhat thought that it is useless
