How long does it take to encrypt an Android device?

I decided to up my security game and encrypt my Android phone (Galaxy S4). Everything seems to have gone ok, but the encryption process is taking forever. I’ve been waiting at least 20 minutes, and I’m starting to worry that is has hung up. How long does device encryption take to complete on an Android device?

It can take a long time, I would expect to wait 30 minutes for encryption to be completed, perhaps even a little longer. If it is taking over an hour, though, something has probably gone amiss. Just make sure it’s plugged into an AC outlet when you start encryption.
