    Default ART vs Dalvik user report (Carrier, Model, Issues?)

    What's your experience like with ART, love it or hate that you were forced to switch back to Dalvik? I have the LG G3 D852 & Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900W8 from Bell. Both are now running ART.


    The only issue I have with the S5 is thea stock app, Polaris Office 5. I can't open PDF files which in my case I rarely use.

    Compared to the S5 I noticed the performance & smoothness more with ART on the G3, I guess it's because when I first got her I did notice lag. It's only been a few hours since I switched but I'm loving it no issues and was able to open a PDF file.

    Also, I noticed when I try performing Software Update I get a message on the S5 saying my OS has been modified and recommends using Samsung Kies which I no luck. Ironically, there's a performance update and I can't update it. I have no problems with the G3.

    Galaxy S4 - T-Mobile - Rooted and running Slim Kat 4.4.4

    Have been running ART since release and haven't had any issues that I can attribute to ART with absolute certainty. I have had apps crash but they weren't exactly rare on Dalvik either. Battery life does seem to be slightly improved, at least while idle.

    Nexus 5 - Telstra Australia - Kit Kat 4.4.4r2 - only one app looks unhappy and crashes (ironically it's a carrier app); no other problems.
