    Purchased note 5 on Verizon yesterday. But there is no smart manager which allows you to manage ram usage. I saw a video with r-i-c-k-y the android guy explaining how the smart manager works but I read that a few carriers removed it from their phones. How do I manage ram on my note to keep battery consumption lower.

    Another feature/app Verizon is blocking. I cannot find the APK yet so connotations verify if it can be sideloaded.

    It can be done with root on the s6. Of course no root on the note 5 verizon yet. But you can try it if /when a root is released.

    Carriers really need to stop policing our phones. You would think samsung is popular enough to have similar authority like Apple and tell them to back off you aren't controlling our software. It's bad enough we have to wait so long for phone updates because of them. I will go the nexus route as soon as they make a phone I like.

    You don't need to manage RAM, Android does a very good job of that.

    Here's what Verizon told me
    There are no good answers to give the public because the motivations are greed, arrogance, and "control issues." Sixteen years with VZW and I'm just about done with them. They also semi-crippled the Note 7, removing several features including the FREE 15 GB Samsung cloud storage so we would be forced to pay for Verizon's offering. Fortunately, there was a way to get it back. Unfortunately, the Note 7 had to be recalled.
