    Hi guys,

    After 2 software updates were done on the phone (one right after the other - using the usual built-in software update flow), the phone RAM memory limit is displayed at 1.31 GB instead of 1.5 GB.

    I do not know what exactly these updates were, but here are some things i do know:
    - there were 2 updates: fist update was ~120 MB, second was ~50 MB
    - description was they were optimization updates
    - they did not update android to a newer version (still 4.2.2)
    - after the first update i got a pop-up showing a progress bar of all the applications getting updated/optimized
    - after these updates i got a new tab in the "Application manager" called "On Sd Card"
    - after these updates, some booking/hotels/TV samsung apps were installed - they were also installed by default when i got the phone but i removed them and they got re-installed now

    Is there any way to fix this RAM display or maybe uninstall these 2 updates?

    Later edit: it might be the new firmware (I9195XXUBML1). Anyone has the same problem with it?

    I got my phone Jan. 10th, and it shows the 1.31. There haven't been any updates in the last week, so I can only assume that's what it always displayed (I didn't look at the actual number until now). If not for this thread, I would have assumed that's what it's supposed to be. It's not really an issue, since I don't use all of it, but I do wonder now if I'm losing out on some RAM.

    Edit: A poster in another forum seems to think this is not an issue: http://samsunggalaxysforums.com/show...S4-mini/page2?

    So the S4 mini does 1.5Gb of RAM....roughly translated 1.31GB is correct.
    Another interesting thing I found in googling this issue is a forum where someone put 1.5 GB of RAM in their computer, and their BIOS reads 1.31 (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/23...-25gb-detected). So I wonder if there's some sort of actual legit reason, like displaying binary GB vs. base-10, or something like that.
