    Is this normal? It says I only have like 1.59 of ram left and every week it changes

    Is this supposed to happen?

    Ok not quite sure if you are serious or trolling but I'll bite.

    The more applications or services you have running the more ram they are going to use. Some apps can be more memory intensive than others games for example. You are utilizing less than half of your ram capacity that is not bad at all. The amount you use will fluctuate depending on what is running. If you notice unusually high memory usage you can stop your apps one by one untill you find the culprit. Android handles multitasking pretty well so no need to bother with a task killer they tend to cause more problems than they fix. Your usage shown in your picture looks just fine to me. My suggestion is don't stress unless you are experiencing a problem and enjoy your phone.

    I have a feeling the original poster is confusing the RAM memory used by the phone to operate with the "storage space" the device has.

    The Android OS is always running (that is what is telling you how much memory you have left) and that takes up some room in memory. .4GB of space taken up by the OS is not really THAT bad.

    HTH,

    I know that my ram usage even after 20 min of use usually shows up as ive used like 1.32g of 1.59 it doesn't even show that I have 2g which I know that is normal but it shouldnt use 1.xgb of ram in twenty min after clearing it. Is yours doing the same

    I'm having the same issue. My TOTAL RAM started at 1.79. Now it's down to 1.59. Any ideas on why it keeps decreasing? Any help to increase the RAM is appreciated.

    maybe background apps which cant be stoped by task manager are counted into the unavalable ram making total available ram less?
    just a theory.. things like Light Flow etc that run in background....

    It is 2GB, but it will never actually say 2GB because some of the memeory is used for other things on the phone....they round it off I think

    How did you get to that screen though? I don't see how to get to "Ram Manager"

    My total ram has been at 1.59 GB since the first time I checked. It's like computers. The OS uses a specific amount of ram, never lower but could be higher. So if you think about it that is the total amount of ram available for you to use.
