    i just got a new phone/tablet today and i was going through the process installing all my usual applications to monitor my ram usage and ect. i noticed i was using all my ram and my phone only had that application installed on it. so i killed all the apps and it still had over half of the memory in use with no apps running.

    i poked around on the phone and noticed a couple bloat apps on it, so i removed them and tried to kill all the apps again and still over half the memory is being used... i though it might be something to do with the launcher so i downloaded the smallest and simplest launcher out there (smart launcher 2). and killed all apps once more and still over half of the memory is being used. i have rooted my phone and ran root checker on it to make sure it was rooted but i wouldn't even know where to start in finding out what is using 500mb of ram constantly. i thought it may be the ROM but i haven't found one i can use. its not compatible with Cyanogenmod and i cant pull the battery.

    any help is appreciated. see link for phone specs.
    go to ebay and add /itm/390864009583?_trksid=p2060778.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    (yes i realize its a cheap Chinese phone but there has to be an explanation as to why its using over 500 mb of ram all the time.)

    Don't worry about RAM usage. Android handles RAM perfectly fine by itself. Killing off tasks does more harm than good.
