Re: Is my phone acting as it should?
1. RAM usage of >80% is normal. Remember that Android prefers RAM to be used, not to be free. I would be more concerned if RAM is constantly >95% full. Here's an excellent article from Jerry Hildenbrand: RAM: What it is, how it's used, and why you shouldn't care | Android Central
2. You said you set Wifi to turn off while asleep in the settings--where in the Settings menu? I have to go to Settings/Wi-fi, then press menu again and select Advanced, then select "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep." Then you can select "Always, Only when plugged in, or Never." Is that where you're seeing it?
4. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing that the Settings Storage that has the blue slider icon is associated with Android Settings, while the Settings Storage with the hammer and wrench icon is associated with Motorola apps.
7. What I've disabled (I'm not rooted, and I'm on Verizon):
Android keyboard (AOSP)
Android Live Wallpapers
Home screen tips
Magic Smoke Wallpapers
Moto Chinese Input
Moto Smart Handwriting
Moto (Chinese characters)
Music Visualization Wallpapers
Swype (I have Swiftkey right now)
Sync Service (Verizon's)
8. The 3 partitions are Application Storage, Internal Storage, and SD Card [external]. The App Storage and Internal Storage are partitions of the onboard memory; "Phone Storage" and "Internal Storage" are synonymous. Apps usually install to Application Storage, but some larger apps will default to installing partially on Internal Storage to save room in Application Storage (since the Razr Maxx is limited to 3 GB of App Storage). For unrooted phones, you can never install an app completely in Internal Storage (or on the external SD card, for that matter)--some part of it has to remain in App Storage. Additional data that apps save (like photos that it might take, for example) will typically be saved in Internal Storage, but apps may also have an option to save to the External SD Card.
