Is there any easy way when powering on an iPhone 45 to determine if its protected with a PIN or a Password?

Also - in terms of PIN vs Password - does it make any difference to the protection of the phone, i.e. does PIN not encrypt contents, and Password does encrypt contents? Or do both encrypt contents?
