    Not sure mate mine hovers around 650mb, and I'm also taking apps off task manager and clearing ram, I have always done that even when I had an iPhone but on my s3 it doesn't go down no lower that 600mb

    Sometimes, it can be really good but other times it's quite laggy.

    Android is actually quite sophisticated about memory management. It will keep recently used apps in memory so that when you access them again, they're ready, and you don't have to wait for them to load. If the memory in use by an application that isn't active is needed by a newly accessed program, Android will free up that memory for use by the new program. With this design, most of the memory will show as used. That doesn't mean it's not available for another app when needed, though. It means Android is working as designed.

    You can "kill" apps to free up memory in the Application Manager function under settings, but it won't really benefit you. And it may slow down your user experience, if the phone has to repeatedly reload the applications you use.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Mine is using 1.2gb right now and running just fine. Don't worry about it unless your phone is getting slow or killing batteries.

    Since Jelly Bean mine goes up over 1G all the time. I'm really surprised the international phones only have 1G.

    I think he is talking about an international s3 so it only has 1 gig

    No he is talking about the 2gb version with the dual core s4 chip, it had about 1.8gb free memory and he is saying it uses around 1.2

    Un-install all your apps, and reset the phone.
    Or, don't worry about it.

    I've got a 2gb GS3, and whenever I look at my 'RAM Status' – it's usually in the 550-600 range (out of 1.69GB available)– and after I tap 'Clear memory' ...... it typically drops down into the low 300's.

    And it's running super-super fine; still on ICS. Viva La ICS!

    If you press the home button when the screen is unlocked Multi-tasking will open in the bottom left corner there is a little Pie Chart, click that and it should tell you your RAM usage.

    Sean – What meyereweb explained in his post, above, is the same thing that I've read–in several places over the last few months–about the current android RAM technology. meyerweb explains it well in his/her post above. Therefore, I would agree with others, and recommend not to worry.

    If you're experiencing some laggy-ness, I'd guess that it's probably due to something else, and not your RAM.

    Hold down the home button and it will pop up the app switcher and it should show the amount of ram used.
