I will note that it didn't seem to happen when I played music that was stored locally, only when streaming music in Google Play (I didn't try streaming in any other apps). Anyone else have an issue like that? Other than that, I've never had a problem with the phone, so I just returned it to Dalvik and haven't had any issues.
    That's one of the issues with ART. It's not playing nice with certain apps, features and or mods. That's an issue of apps not being designed for the system and the result is force closures and crashes like you are having.

    Not too worried, it should be good to go around the time it hits carrier phones as a finished product

    Yep which is why I didn't get bothered by it. I can't wait until it's fully cooked though!

    Until then, I unfortunately can't use ART.

    4.3 Gb of Storage space for app cache. Nothing major. Android os takes up 6 itself. This still leave a good 30gb free. I don't really notice a difference on ART. I switched immediately after receiving KK. I did notice that the phone was faster for the few minutes that I used KK before I flipped the switch, so I have no reason to believe that ART is causing the speed increase or if it was KK.

Perhaps everyone should have conditioned there batteries at least for a week or so before switching to this Art mode.

    Yes, ART increases battery life since it does less CPU work each and every time you start a App or anything runs on your phone. Is it a major increase don't think so. But it is a nice increase that will extend your battery time. I stopped charging the N5 every day now that I used Art. How much your battery does depends on how you use your phone and how many Apps you start. If you only run a few Apps and leave them open in the back ground then it won't increase your battery as much as how some other people use their phone.

    ART uses the cpu far less than dalvik in everyday use that extends the battery. Dalvik has to covert portable bytecode into executable code for the specific CPU in your phone every time you start up an App. ART converts all the Apps bytecode into executable code for the specific CPU in your phone just one time and stored it that way as a App ready to run in the CPU. So your App will never have to ever take that extra CPU step ever again under ART.

    ART improves battery life, but is more noticeable when the phone is idling, as it simply controls background apps better and more efficiently. Changed mine to ART and there is definitely a faster response from apps opening, nothing drastic but I can see a difference. Nice feature to be able to switch over imo.
