The most improvement will be found, in my experience, by increasing your system's RAM. In my experience 4GB is rather minimal for Android development, especially when using Genymotion. My first suggestion, therefore, would be to increase your RAM and check the difference, if the build time is still bad post back and perhaps other options can be explored.

Happy coding.
