Hi guys... one of my friends just bought a nexus 5 and he turned on Art and then the phone rebooted normally. After the reboot, it was laggy so he turned back to dalvik hoping that this would make the phone fast as new, but it didn't happen and the phone is laggy right now... How can he repair it? Thanks in advance

EDIT: he selected again dalvik and then the phone were again fast

Should switch to art after a factory reset. Works great. Better battery and performance

art isnt meant to be used yet, its an experimental feature thats only in kit kat so that devs can develop for it. People need to stop reporting/complaining about ART bugs and wait for the finished product

It is located in the
"Developer Options" for a reason.
