Has anyone experimented with the different runtimes? Just curious before I go ahead and test it myself if anyone has experienced any negatives.

The negatives are that there are very few apps that are designed to run with ART. I've also seen one user report that ART soft-bricked his phone and he had to FXZ back to restore.

I've run ART now over the weekend. I'm surprised at what apps did and did not work, beautiful widgets for one, but nothing I can't live without. I've noticed some better battery life, but it seems to eat up storage. I feel like the Android OS doubled in size...I'm not sure on that though. I'm here researching why the storage became an instant issue now.
