Guys which Runtime are u using on your Kitkat device currently...is it Dalvik or ART? (Dalvik is default)

While ART is still in development...did anyone try it on our Verizon Note 3 and feel any difference in Performance & Battery Life...

Edit: Actually our Kitkat firmware doesnt provide the option to change between Dalvik and ART...

As of now I do not have detailed specs for you but I can tell you that ART does have a slight performance/battery increase compared to Dalvik.
A problem with using ART though, is that if you are using any of the XpoSed modules then they will not work properly since the code is designed for Dalvik. I know he is currently waiting on the code to be released so that he can make this work with ART.
Here's a quote from another post about the battery life using ART
"It estimates that my battery (57%) can stay for 7.1 days on standby"
