I've seen a HUGE improvement to the lag. The phone can actually keep up with me when I type now. I should have done this a long time ago.

Shouldn't really make a difference typing. Only storage activities are affected.

I am encrypted-complete stock at the moment and I do not experience any lag. I am wondering if decrypting my phone will make a difference in day to day use? I realize the Read/Write speeds are lower with encryption enabled but to me the phone feels fast and I don't experience any lag whatsoever. For those who did it do you see a difference?

It boots faster and backups were faster unencrypted, other than that I didn't see any real difference.

Yeah I'm completely stock, just rooted and unencrypted. And yeah there is a minor difference in speed with the screen transitions and multi app switching. I believe benchmarks are higher. But if you like being encrypted, I'd say keep it. Its just us power users that like to squeeze every bit of power out of our devices. And I believe there is a small difference in battery life. But none to make a casual user go wow.

Plain nope. Hardly can tell the difference but that's just my opinion.

I tried removing decryption while on cm12, is there any way to remove it? I tried using this same method but it hasnt removed the encryption. I have an unlocked bootloader and twrp, I fastboot flash the boot img, I then went into twrp and did a factory reset, nothing, then I did wiped, dalvik and cache, data and system and still nothing. Any suggestion?

CM12 should by default encrypt your phone.
There is an ption to encrypt your phone in Security settings as well.
