    Hey, I recently got a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and I noticed that the usage of RAM was pretty high. Is currently at a 2.12 GB out of 2.76 GB. Is this normal for a note 4? Should I get a RAM cleaning app? I'm sure this is an easy one, thanks guys for all your help.

    In short, that is normal, and don't bother with a task cleaner..it is designed to fill your ram, as any 'nix system will. Think of it as a "cache, use or flush" system.

    Gomez, your problem isn't too much RAM being used, it's 600MB of RAM that's being wasted by not being used.

    And NEVER use an app that "cleans your RAM". All that says is that the developer doesn't understand how Android works. Cleaning out RAM is the last thing you want to do. (Well, he last non-destructive thing - I'd rather clear out RAM than drop my phone in the ocean if those were the only options.)

    My Note3 RAM status is 1.78GB/2.74GB.

    I agree with Rukbat. Never use an app that "cleans your RAM". You may click the 'Clear memory' button in RAM Manager if you need.
