ART vs. Dalvik – OnePlus One Battery Life Review

We are all wondering…which gets better battery and which performs better? Watch the video to find out. I show two usual cases of standby and screen on time for each. Comparing the same usage on them both with several days of use on each after giving them time to settle in first, I have come to a definite conclusion. ART destroys Dalvik on the OnePlus One. Not only are things more responsive but it feels just lighter as if it is having an easier time running Android. This really showed in the battery life tests as I reached up to 7 hours of screen on time! If you have a OnePlus One, switch it to ART and see what I am talking about.

Here is theย video review showing some screencasts and screenshots:

I have finally fixed my audio/mic recording issues and I will share how I did that soon.

 

OnePlus One Battery Life Review On ART (Android Runtime)

(Updated Comparison Post: ART vs. Dalvik):ย https://thelostdigit.com/2014/08/07/art-vs-dalvik-oneplus-one-battery-life-review/

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.
