Download the androbench app and run the "all" test. If your sequential read speed is around 200-300 then it worked.

You can go to settings>security and if you see the option to "Encrypt phone" under Encryption then it was successful

I'm curious how android encrypts existing data (ie if you select encrypt phone at some point in the future) without wiping data? Does it need at least 50% free space?

I ask because I'm thinking of disabling encryption for now and re-enabling it in the future if Google enables hardware accelerated encryption.
