After switching to ART on my stock M8 it got extremely laggy at times and froze up to a minute at a time. The phone would also get hot. After switching back to Dalvik everything was fast again. Anyone notice this?

You have to remember ART is still developmental. Also you need to say whether you are on Sense or GPE as there are issues with sense.

Also there are a number of apps that still aren't working with ART.

There are some roms that include it

I think your issue is that the phone was throttling due to the heat. Because it probably ran at maximum CPU speeds to optimise the apps for ART, this would have cause the phone to get hot and to feel the need to throttle. Give it some time to cool down and to settle then see if it still feels laggy

That problem should only last a few minutes or so. This has been happening for 2 weeks until I changed back this morning.

Have a look on here, are any of the apps that are supposedly broken running in the background?

I am not sure when this list was last updated as some of them worked when I used art last time although some of them were definitely broken.

as mentioned here

Didn't see any of my apps that weren't working. I've hard restarted and used only a few essential apps (Yahoo Mail, Hangouts, Snapchat) which are all working on ART and the problem still occurred.
