Default Experiences with ART?

Was searching through dev settings when to my surprise I saw dalvik/art. Anybody want to share their experiences so far? Improvements or bugs?

I haven't had any apps that didn't like ART yet. Definitely makes things faster/smoother having the apps pre-compiled.

ART is part of KK so yes, it would be included. I turned it on and things are really smooth. Loving my M8.

Just because it's part of KitKat doesn't mean it's guaranteed to be included; the HTC One M7 didn't have it because Sense 5.5 and below weren't optimized for it.

However, I just switched to ART to see how it runs - so far everything has been smooth but then again I only switched about 2 hours ago.

I used art on my i605 and Toro. Saw more of a difference on those phones. This phone is just too smooth for art I disabled it not long after enabling because a couple of my apps don't get along with it.

Threes. Order of chaos. A few older Gameloft games as well. And then some misc apps that have been abandoned.

I was using ART for a bit but honestly I don't see any speed improvements over dalvik on this phone. My DNA yes, it was night and day, but on this it's snappy as hell either way. I switched back to dalvik to use xposed
