    Mainly for fun/ battery life, etc. Any major apps that will get broken/any negative experiences with ART on this device?

    You should search around here a little before creating a new thread. This topic has already been discussed

    There's so many threads when a new phone comes out that it's hard to keep up with what's been discussed. And really, hardly anyone searches. I'd rather have several small threads than one gigantic thread with 800 posts.

    Here's a couple threads to get you started.

    ART???

    Doesn't it make the standby time better?

    For me art seemed to improve my battery life, normal functions are noticeably more snappy as well. Worth a try if you want to test it out.

    Yes, and standby time was fine.

    Not saying you shouldn't switch to ART, just saying don't expect much

    It didn't mess up your phone switching to ART? I'm thinking about switching to it

    Did you see any differences and did it mess up anything on your M8?
