    Has anyone switched from Dalvik to ART on their Note 4? If so, what has been your experience?

    I created a thread on this a little while ago, but to answer the question, I haven't noticed anything substantial with performance as of yet, but anytime I restarted my phone while under the ART runtime, EVERYTIME it reloads the apps as if my phone did an OS update. and it is rather annoying.

    I'm using a stock AT&T variant.

    Slow start, run okay afterward in kitkat. Prefer Dalvik for now.

    I'm testing it right now. Or rather I'm waiting to optimize app 112 of 367.

    I'll post again tomorrow after using a bit to see how it does.

    I also noticed no difference in performance. I'm also using att stock, and now plan to go back to Dalvik until the reboot issue is fixed.

    Same behaviour here on a N910g from Optus in Australia. 59 apps continually get Optimized on any reboot or restart. Not recommended...

    I just recently swapped to art I'm on Verizon. Mine runs good so far. Mine only recompiles 9 apps total on a restart . I'm still checking battery life. It runs a little smoother but the multi task lag is still there.

    I'm also using ART on Verizon. It actually makes Hangouts lag a bit less which is what I was hoping. Hangouts has always lagged a ton on my Samsung devices. My battery life seems more or less the same to be honest.

    I had intermittent loss of phone calls and messages. Meaning on occasion, my phone would just pop up telling me i have one missed call and 3 missed messages and so on. Went back to dalvik and problem magically disappeared.

    I had the same experience. It wasn't worth switching since the phone was unusable until all my apps were updated. Went back to Dalvik IMMEDIATELY.

    I switched to ART on my Verizon note 4 running kitkat and it lagged terribly. When I upgraded to lollipop, I had no performance issues or lag. Did kitkat use a different version of ART than lollipop?

    The version on KitKat was early/experimental, not the finished product that ended up in Lollipop. That's why it was hidden under Developer options.

    That's good. But it ain't worth two dead flies on on 4.4.4.
