Default ART vs Dalvik

I have updated to Android 4.4 and I'm testing ART.
I haven't noticed if the phone is faster and my battery lasts less!
Have you tested it? How does it work for you?

Another person created a thread with the same question, ART vs Dalvik. You could use that thread for information, or post your doubts there.

ART made my battery life incredibly good, with KitKat. Now i spend about 20% a day with max usage.

My batterylife is also much better with ART. Phone 'feels' more snappy too.

No you are not, xposed resets your phone to dalvik.

Which I guess also would mean there is not a user noticeable difference between art and dalvik

I just switched to ART from dalvik, haven't notice any difference, Gee was fast even in dalvik environment.
Can't tell anything about battery yet.
