    So how can I clear more space from my alplications? I stop running apps but it still seems like I could clear more memory. This is what I currently show on my note 4 is this to much? Could I clear more?

    You can use apps like Clean Master.

    But any ram not used is bad ram. So it's not necessarily a bad thing when ram is used.

    yea.. no matter what i closed and disabled allot of the bloatware the lowed I had was still 1.89 gig running. they must have allocated that in some way.. no slow down on this thing even with tons of crap running. I guess we dont need to worry about it as much anymore.

    So would you say 1.89 is normal average on the note 4?

    Let your phone handle the memory management. You will not run out of memory. You will just end up wasting unnecessary time worrying about it and your phone will run slower because you removed too many things from the memory.

    Yes. Clearing RAM on Android is actually a bad idea -- It does more harm than good. Android manages RAM differently than Windows. Below is a good article written by Jerry. It is still true to this day .

    I've been playing with my note 4 for a while and notice that even idle with no apps running it still uses about 2GB of RAM. What was the point of upgrading the RAM if the OS takes up so much to begin with?

    Anyone know any causes/resolutions to this?

    That is the point of upgrading the RAM. If it only had the standard 2GB, there would be little room for other apps to run, so they give it 3GB so there is plenty available for non-system apps.

    Honestly it is fine. Android manages RAM very efficiently and will clear stuff out when needed .

    Be thankful. Android does a good job of ram management. If it didnt or you had much less ram your apps would load slower or have to reload everytime during app switching/multi tasking. Its putting it to good use

    This is disappointing to hear. I am always having to run a RAM cleaner on my Razr Maxx to stay below 90% used. Sounds like I may end up in the same boat.

    Much talk here of dumping Touchwiz for some of the other alternatives. Do you guys know if switching to some of those that have been mentioned in this forum would cut away at the amount of ram used....enough to make it worthwhile?

    You still have 1GB of RAM unused. It's like your wallet always have 1/3 of your money for spare. Why panic?

    Dumping TouchWiz means dumping all the features that make a Note a Note. Yes, you can cut down on the RAM used by doing that but then why buy a Note at all?

    You shouldn't have to worry about ram use. Im at 2.5gb of use on ram and have zero lag or slowdown. Its there so that the operating system doesn't have to refresh apps continuously. Using task killers and memory clearing software dont do much. Those tasks and programs your killing will just reload to be in memory ready for when you need it. Your widely used apps benefit most.

    I think this is something that Android users occupy themselves with and they really shouldn't. But they do because they can see it. ch other platforms, you don't necessarily see how the device handles memory management. Therefore Android users tend to think of it as a problem. It isn't. My Note 4 crashes less than my iPhone 5S and my iPad Air. That's what I care about.The performance on the Note 4 is great. This is considering that it multitasks better than any other smartphone on the market in my opinion.
