As discussed here, there are some notable benefits to phone encryption, so I'm about to try it for the first time. Before doing it:
will I be able to remove the password / lock in the future, after encryption? or will it to be mandatory to have to enter a password on phone boot? I.e. if I don't want any protection anymore, will there always be a password prompt on boot or can I disable this? (btw: I read that totally disabling encryption needs a full format / factory reset)
have you noticed a lower performance after encryption, on everyday use (browsing, basic apps, etc.)?
I have a Samsung a3 2015 with android 5.0.2.
