    With 3 gb of ram, I would have assumed that I would have no problem/fear of ever running out of ram.

    I use the active apps manager widget to kill apps and to also clear the ram. Recently I have been noticing that I am getting closer and closer to the 2.38gb ceiling. Once I clear all the apps, it drops to like 1.59gb.

    I had to get rid of my weather/clock app because I thought that was the problem but now it doesn't seem so.

    Anyone having these issues?

    Keep in mind Android like to have the RAM full as opposed to Windows likes having it on standby.

    And that's a good thing? So if I start a game or app that might be ram intensive, then I won't get a message like "not enough ram"?

    Just learned something new today I guess. Thanks.

    It'll just drop something that is low priority to make room. Android has pretty good RAM management.

    Are you noticing any issues as a result of the high ram? If not, then no need to worry as Android will do what it needs to keep the OS running smooth. I wouldn't worry much about the ram usage unless there's issues.

    No issues yet. Just when I go to clear the ram it seems that the ram usage seems to get higher and higher everyday.

    I guess if it ain't broke....

    It is a difference in how Android handles RAM vs how Windows handles RAM. Windows does not like to kill programs that are in RAM, because it assumes you are actively using the program. Android on the other hand likes to keep as many programs as possible in RAM so that you can quickly resume them when you need them. If you need more RAM, Android will dump low priority programs to make more room. Don't worry about it, this is simply how Android handles RAM. If your phone had 6 GB of RAM, it would keep it as close to full as possible.
