Abstract [en]

In 2014 Google released a new version of their mobile operating system Android where one of the features was the change from Dalvik to Android Runtime (ART). Dalvik and ART are two runtimes that are used by Android applications and some of the system services. The purpose was to see where ART and Dalvik differs when it comes to applications size, RAM usage and performance. The methods used for deducing there differences where to install multiple applications and then examine the applications size and the RAM usage. Also, benchmark applications was used to measure the performance between ART and Dalvik. The results showed that ART was better when it comes to performance and RAM usage. Interestingly there was a few drawbacks with ART. One of them were that application sizes where larger compared to Dalvik.
