    Thumbs up One Week of ART - Improved Battery Life & Speed

    Hey Guys,

    I flipped the switch to ART one week ago and this is what I've found: After the first 3-4 days, I actually was noticing worse battery life (I'm still trying to read Pro Stats for wakelocks and usage) after my 5th and 6th days, I have noticed a significant increase in battery life and much less Android OS and Phone Idle impact on my battery. The speed at which apps open and respond are improved from dalvik imo. I use nova launcher prime and I have a list of apps that I have disabled here:

    Interesting, what kind of issues? I only use bluetooth for important calls when I'm in the car. Can't hear much in an Evo anyways.

    There was a good post on Lifehacker today linking to a couple of Android Police posts about ART vs. Dalvik. They don't show dramatic improvements. There are some improvements, but it looks like mostly a wash.
