Anyone notice any difference between ART vs Dalvik Run Time options? I've been hearing that switching to ART has very little but beneficial battery and performance boosts. What are the rest of your experiences?

AFAIK you can't do ART and xposed...which means I won't be using ART until that changes

From what I've heard there is a good performance increase, but some apps aren't compatible.

I switched to art the other day (GPE conversion here). So far performance is still very good, battery still very good, maybe a little better. There is a pretty comprehensive list somewhere that says what apps are compatible or not. I went through and made sure my core apps were compatible and then flipped the switch. So far I haven't run into any compatibility issues. From what I understand is that Google will be using art in the next Android version so it would behoove developers to start making their apps compatible with art.

Edit:battery is noticeably better, although not by that much.

I've found ART actually runs the whole phone slower than an optimized dalvik build. Only the opening of apps is faster. Plus you lose xposed, and other support, like theming since everything has to be odexed.
