Swear to all gods, old and new: all I did was switch from Dalvik to ART and BAM! Instant improved battery life.
Try it for yourself. Won't hurt and you can always revert back efortlessly.

Cheers!

Any other advantages/disadvantages of using ART rather than Dalvik noted? :P And what ROM are you on?

I am scared to switch it on 442 unrooted x.
Are you unlocked? Rooted?

When i first got my Moto G, before I unlocked and rooted it, I switched to ART while on stock, and it worked fine.

Since then I have unlocked the bootloader, rooted, and installed some Xposed stuf.

Now when I go to switch to ART, the phone just reboots normally, doesn't update any apps, and I'm still on Dalvik??

Anyone have any ideas??

ART is not compatible with Xposed.

ahhhhh..... gotcha.... so its either one or the other eh?

I think I will keep xposed just because I LOVE having a center clock, lol.

Thanks for that.

I knew that from when I had my Xperia ZL, but for some reason I was thinking it was device specific.

So the horrors could be only due to Xposed & other mods? Art is safe on stock?

Stock rom, unlocked bootloader and rooted.

Dual sim, by the way, so not many roms out there (if any, I think...).

I read it somewhere that ART makes apps launch slightly slower, but I didn't really feel any difference in real life usage. Maybe we're talking about miliseconds here, totally unnoticeable, mainly with skype and facebook apps, which normally take a few seconds to launch anyway. The rest are as snappy as can be.

Yep, it's because of Xposed. If you can't live without its improvements (which are great, no doubt), you can't have ART.
I had Gravity Box, but turned out the only function I used was the quick access to tiles (you know, pull drawer on right half of screen). I get by without it.
