Users with encrypted phones, help please

From the online articles and the encryption description i was left with the impression that i will need to enter the password only on boot.
Well appears that once encrypted the only active unlock options become, face unlock, pin and password.
All take too long for my daily use, and since you don't have to use the encryption password for unlocking (the phone is decrypted on boot) but other options like face unlock, why we can't unlock with the normal slider screen or at least pattern unlock?

Is there a way to go around it and enable the slider unlock on an encrypted phone?

i know that decreases the security, but knowing that if i lose my phone, chances are the battery will die before someone digs into it, and they will need to decrypt it then.... is enough for my needs.
