    I turned ART on my Moto G, and now whenever I reboot the phone, it says 'Android Is Upgrading' is this just because ART is an experimental feature or is there something wrong with the phone? Thanks in advance

    Welcome to Android Central! That shouldn't happen every time you reboot. When you switch from Dalvik to ART, you'll see the "Android is Optimizing Apps" message the first time you reboot, but afterwards, it shouldn't happen again.

    Try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition.

    Hey, Thanks for your detailed reply! Unfortunately clearing the cache didn't work, one other thing I should probably mention is that when I switch to ART the battery drops probably 1% every 30 seconds with the screen on.

    Something sure sounds wrong with ART. What happens if you switch back to Dalvik? Try that, and if that goes normally, try switching to ART again.

    This happens to me also, which I find quite annoying. It has to be because of art. I'll try switching back to dalvik and back again when I get home.

    Yeah the problem only happens when ART is turned on, when switching back to Dalvik battery life is better and it doesn't update after every reboot.

    Edit - I've tried 3 factory resets and switched between Dalvik and ART around 6 times, with no luck.

    This is a bug in the firmware that affect everyone right now. Will have to wait for an update.
