OnePlus One Battery Life Review On ART (Android Runtime)

(Updated Comparison Post: ART vs. Dalvik):

I have done a video showing some of the battery life results I have been getting for the past 2 weeks that give a good estimation of how the device performs while using the ART runtime. I have been fairly please getting 6-7 hours of screen on time consistently even though I have the worst signal in my room. I want to compare it to Dalvik and have switched back now to test it thoroughly to be able to compare. Once the testing is complete I will write a comparison post comparing the performance between the two.

OnePlus One Nillkin Frosted Matte Hard Case Review

This case is solid, textured well to prevent slip, and protects the screen when flipped over, in other words…amazing. It is available on Amazon for $11.80 and it is well worth it. The colors are a bit off due to the old phone I was using to photograph the One, but in person the color of it contrasts the phone very well.
