ART is still experimental. It's not ready for end-users yet: it's only included at all so developers can find problems with their own apps. It doesn't surprise me at all that games that make heavy use of native code don't work with ART. You should ignore anything people say about the performance characteristics of ART, for the same reason. It could get ...

ART is still in development stage. Difference between Delvik and ART: When android app is installed, the Delvik Virtual Machine is used to compile and run the app. The compiled app is loaded in the RAM. When the app is closed and reopened the process has to be redone. This method is called JIT (Just In Time) In ART unlike compiling every time, when the ...

This is a crash and restart of the android runtime, without a crash and reboot of the underlying linux operating system kernel. The uptime refers to the underlying linux, so it is maintained across the framework restart. The difference between a framework crash and restart vs. a kernel crash and reboot is not very apparent to the end user, since there's ...

From what I can see in the video, the fluctuations are within about 1° in the first app, and 0.5° in the second. That's not exactly "random numbers in a wide range". Accuracy within 1° is acceptable for most intended use cases: Mobile games, screen orientation, gestures, etc. It's quite possible that Motorola decided to use a cheaper sensor since the phone ...

This issue gets pretty clear by the second screenshot, which I will repeat here: Battery usage (click image for larger variant) Please pay attention to its lower half, just below the graph, and let me point out some details: Mobile network signal: This bar has no black, which means the radio was on all the time. Further, the colors indicate a relatively ...

He probably is talking about the Galaxy Tab. Most non-android-enthusiasts tend to refer to anything that runs on Android as "Droid." There are a number of Android tablets available right now, and as you saw Motorola is releasing a tablet at the beginning of 2011, but the only one available through Verizon is the Galaxy Tab so that's probably what he's ...

Although the number that is making the call (initiated) is a random number, be assured the number that shows on their caller id is your google voice number, unless you have a different setting in your voice.google.com set up or on your phone. I noticed mine did this too when i called out from my phone the other day, but my client saw my gv number Chad

In my phone (Moto G running 4.4.4) this symbol appears when the phone is set to use "High Accuracy Mode" (i.e. use the GPS rather than Wi-Fi/phone network for location) and some app requests the location.

I'm not sure of the Motorola methodology for answering or ignoring a call, but on my Samsung, merely touching the green or red button is insufficient; it requires a swipe to convey the intention. I believe this was re-engineered to prevent accidental accepts or hangups through a mere button press. The green button has green arrows and a swipe in the arrow ...

This actually sounds pretty normal to me. If this screenshot was taken shortly after you woke up then it would make sense for the OS to have used more battery, since the screen would have been off for a long while. I've owned several Android phones, having worked for Verizon Wireless before becoming a developer, and I've never had an Android phone that I ...

If you're asking if you can do remote desktop on a phone and also have the phone output to a TV, the answer's yes. I use Remote Desktop Enterprise on my device (Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant), and my device supports some sort of output from the USB port to HDMI as well as wireless DLNA.

This may not be exactly what you are seeing, but I have seen situations where the "home"/launcher app will be garbage collected. The next time the phone returns to the home screen, it shows a loading screen as it restarts the launcher app. Depending on the model of phone, ROM, and launcher you use, this initialization screen may be different, and it may ...
