More than 80,000 people list their phones for sale each day. Most think they cleaned it of all personal data (nude selfies!) with Android's Factory Reset. Not, so. We bought 20 eBay phones and found plenty - and it wasn't hard at all. Read what we found, http://bit.ly/1z3q4Iu

Bonus: We tell you how to wipe your phone thoroughly before you sell it or give it away.

Remember when Avast bought 20 used Android phones off eBay from people who said they used the factory reset to wipe the data? Our researcher @JaromirHorejsi easily recovered dirty selfies, SMSs, contacts, and even a loan application!

Now, Cambridge University researchers confirm Jaromir's research. They determined that Android's “Factory Reset” feature is not as effective as it should be. Read more in SecurityWeek's latest article, http://bit.ly/1Hz2oTn

+Fernando Villalba​ I used the acronyms like SoC (System-on-Chip) etc. because I run into them regularly and didn't really think about the fact that they might be confusing to people who don't. I simply wanted to keep my answer generic and not tied specifically to Qualcomm which I happen to known more about than the others.

There are surely improvements that could be made to the software encryption implementation to improve the performance (like reducing overhead by encrypting larger chunks at a time) but it isn't bad as far as I know. Last time I checked it was based on dm-crypt, the disk encryption solution provided by the Linux kernel that is used in many Linux distros.

My main point however was that the solution to your complaint about disk encryption performance in Android is up to the manufacturers (because it's hardware/platform-specific).
