    Default How to permantly stop apps from running & keep RAM Smooth

    My Maxx is always 1GB - 1.2GB Free. What default or bloatware apps can I stop to make the free RAM bigger. I love the phone's performance and I wanna improve it if possible also since we will get 4.4

    How much free are you expecting? You is and other things will take ram so 1gb free might be the norm

    Well I don't have a specific amount. I'm just trying to get rid of default unnecessary apps and keep phone as smooth as possible. I mean my maxx HD had only like 300MB free which was awful on my phones performance. But this one Has 1.1 free and I wanted to see if I could push it to 1.5 so it would be even smoother. Cause my droid command center widget doesnt even lag anymore like before which is making me love this phone way more

    It should only get better with 4.4, since they're claiming some decent efficiency improvements.

    How many apps have you disabled?

    Default

    To disable bloatware apps is a good idea because it will free space on app storage
    and saving processor power and therefore battery power.

    But you won't see any effect on RAM usage like more free RAM.
    And you don't need to worry about RAM usage
    A process not running, just remaining static in RAM doesn't use processor power, that's why it doesn't consumed battery.
    Android tries to hold processes in RAM, as many as possible, in case their apps would be started again. That's saving processor power and therefore battery power.
    Android's efficient process management will automatically close unused processes when it needs to in order to optimize RAM usage.

    It's Linux. Free ram is wasted ram.

    Try Qualcomm BatteryGuru if you really think unused apps are hurting your battery life. No root required.
