Since speed was never really a problem with this phone, ART has little to no benefit, it takes up about a gig or so and has poor compatibility with many apps. From my testing, around a quarter of my apps fc, blinkfeed was maybe a tad smoother, the rest of the system was already butter smooth, so far, not worth the trouble, not to mention it breaks xposed, in the future it may be worth looking into as theoretically it is better than dalkvik.

Art enabled from the get go. No problems for me. Have used it on my last Sgs4 and Nexus5 with only good effects.

Running and it works great. Not any problem but the speed is the same i think. Not any difference.

So doesn't sound line much of a reason to switch to it yet. I was just curious since I've haven't had a device that could run ART. My N7 2012 can't run ART.

I had one or two forced closes with no noticable change to performance. I'm going to wait till it Google make it the default.

ART is definitely smoother and snappier than dalvik. Apps load much faster because they are precompiled. Should be few issues if any. I have personally tested over 75 apps, all worked fine.

ART Doesn't work nice with Rdio which is my music service. To be honest I didn't notice any great performance boost so I'm happy to wait until it comes out of beta & Google use it as default.

Can you go back and forth between Art and Dalvik with no issues?

That's news to me. When I had a nexus on ART Facebook took much longer to load. Strange.
