Question is about encryption. Lets say that i encrypted my phone. But when does the phone use the encryption? I understand that its encrypted when its turned off. But is it encrypted when the lock screen is on?

It's only when you power your device up is it encrypted. Your PIN/Password is your turret for after the device has been powered on.

Make sure you fully understand the pros and cons of encrypting a device. Most of the time, a standard lock screen is significant enough.
