Better Memory Management in Jellybean?
I'm eligible for a new phone. Several of the phones available to me have only 1 gb of ram. My current phone is an HTC EVO 4G, running Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread?), and it has 1gb of ram. I'm CONSTANTLY finding it slowing down (or just having to reload the entire UI when I switch programs, I get an HTC screen instead of the Sense screen for a few seconds). So I originially said I HAD to have at least 2gb ram.
BUT, I keep hearing how ram is irrelevant. It hasn't been for me. But are there improvements in Android's memory handling between Gingerbread and Jellybean that 1gb is enough? Or was I right and need to move to 2gb?

Re: Better Memory Management in Jellybean?
I'm trying to understand the difference between internal STORAGE and RAM (forgetting for now Memory card storage). My current phone (HTC EVO 4G) has 1gb of storage and 512k of ram. It slows down, and I look at Settings-Applications-Manage Applications, and I see that my free Storage is down to 50Mb or so. If I delete apps and free up to say 90mb of Storage free, I'm good. But this is not RAM, right? This is STORAGE?
Also, sometimes, when I close an app, the phone has to reload Sense, so I get a white "HTC" screen for a minute or so till my home screen comes back. That's Ram, not Storage, right?
