    Android lays all the food, dishes and cutlery on the table until its nearly full, whether you are going to use them or not
    .
    It doesn't like putting things back into the cupboards and fridge all the time.

    Ram in Android is normally kept close to full, unlike Windows.

    There apparently is a related known problem with ram management on the Samsung S6, but it's a particular issue.

    We all had this query when we first moved to Android and there are several dozen threads and some guides on it.

    I will post a link shortly, and then work on thinking of better analogies .

    When was the last time you restarted your phone? If you restart, ram will be released.

    Don't worry about it. It's normal, desirable behavior for RAM to run around 75-85% full, maybe even a little higher. For more information on how Android handles multitasking, processes, RAM, etc automatically for you the link Madd54 provided is very good. You might also want to read this post by one of the authors of Android:
