    The phone actually doesn't run better. Dalvik is just fine. With ART, most of your downloaded apps will not work.

    I never ran into an app that wouldn't work with ART on my old N5, so "most" might be an overstatement.

    It won't make a noticeable difference but if you goto settings/about phone then tap Build Number abunch of times to open Developer Options then go under that to find Select runtime you can turn it on. It does offer an improvement but don't expect to notice it outright.

    I'm running with Art and having no problems. It's a bit faster and should net a touch better battery life.

    If you got KitKat, go into settings and tap 7 or 8 times on Build Number. It should open Developer Options and that's where you can find the ART option.

    I've seen both sides about equally. For me on my n5 there was a noticeable improvement. So far on my m8 there's a noticeable decrease in battery life.

    For me it's helped a bit but nothing great. The idea is that with the apps being compiled already it doesn't need to be done every time you launch an app therefore using less processing power

    Yeah I did alittle research on it, since I run ARHD. He put up 2 versions of the rom..one was ART...but running the ART one I could run Sense 6 toolbox or exposed mods..so I opted to not use it
