I have stock running on my rooted S5, which by the way is the Canadian W8 model.

Read that ART works for the S5, so I enabled it, and what do you know, it started without crashing. As I only just did it, and barely used it, should I go back back to Dalvik?

Anyone know the pros and cons of using ART over Dalvik? I read that ART is still available experimental, so I just don't know if I should be using it or not.

All feedback is appreciated.

Dalvik, because it's stable.

After half a day of usage using ART, I encountered no errors. No massive battery drain although I think the battery drained slightly faster than it had using Dalvik.

I switched back to Dalvik, and am waiting for an awesome ROM and kernel to be developed and perfected so I can drop touchwiz. It's not bad, but too much crap is stuffed in.
