    Red face Android Run Time?

    Hi Everyone!! I'm new here and excited to join in. I got the Nexus 5 3 weeks ago and I LOVE IT. Its so awesome and I'm so glad I chose it!! (took me a while to pick a new phone, it was N5 vs GS4) I think I made the right choice

    Anyways, I just was wondering how many of you are using ART on your nexus 5's? I heard it can help with battery life and stuff and I am not a super phone tech person so I didn't want to play with settings too much before I thought of using that option. What are your thoughts?
    So far I'm not a heavy user of my phone. I usually charge it every other day but lately now I plug it in before I go out to work or elsewhere on a daily basis.

    Welcome to the forums.
    I love ART. Runs much better than Dalvik. I do not have the greatest battery life on my N5, but I think that is more due to the poor signal reception from my carrier than the OS or software.

    I've been using ART since day one, and have had only one program conflict, for the programs I use, that being Slingplayer. I don't use my phone for streaming my movies, so it's no issue. I've also heard that WhatsApp does not play nice with ART.

    What's app works fine with ART on 4.2.2. Personally I've been using it for a while. Not convinced battery life is any better but I've had no problems so I'll keep using it

    Switched to ART myself today, no issues but FF5 doesn't launch. Doesn't bother me much cause I'd rather play that on my tablet anyways
