How to make faster Android build without sacrificing new api lint check

Original solution sacrifices new api lint check.

Here my solution:

int minSdk = hasProperty('minSdk') ? minSdk.toInteger() : 16

apply plugin: ''

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "lt.neworld.minsdktest"
        minSdkVersion minSdk
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"

./gradlew installDebug -PminSdk=23
