    The less RAM used, the more potential for stuttering to occur. That's how Android uses memory.

    Zero stutter for me...and I'm REALLY sensitive to it! I cannot believe how smooth and fluid the S7 edge has been. Perhaps give it another 24 hours for everything to settle in. I feel like with the much faster processor, more RAM, more efficient Android OS (Marshmallow) and slightly lighter Touchwiz, Samsung finally got it right with a super fast, responsive phone.

    Android tries to fill the RAM as much as possible so it can load stuff fast. If it has to keep loading new things into RAM it will cause more stutters. Android doesn't act the same as Windows and try to keep free RAM.

    If applications are cached in RAM, they don't have to "load up" which is the main cause of stutter. So, ideally you want all the applications you use often to be sitting in your RAM waiting to be used.

    People think that the more RAM available in Android translates to a better performing device but this false. The complete opposite is what you strive for.

    This is why "RAM Cleaner" applications are bogus and should never be used.

    I thought that changed with win 10?

    Eh. So, if I reboot my device and start loading apps, I can expect stutters? I think you're confusing loading times for stutters. Stutters are frame rate drops and have nothing to do with what is in memory which I would correlate to your understanding. Unfortunately, Samsung's latest flagships (including the Note 5 I'm typing on) suffer from stuttering in the form of frame rate drops. When the OP says "stutter", I'm not interpreting it as load times.

    I just assumed that the stuttering was caused by delays in the phone feeding information into memory because it was not already cached.

    To clarify I didn't mean stutter as in loading issues, I meant it literally stutters.

    OK so full ram not causing frame rate drops. What DOES cause it?

    No. Stuttering on the screen. Unsmooth user experience. Whatever you want to call it. I am not up on the jargon.

    I totally understand what you are describing and saw it, with great frustration, on my S6 edge. I also see it regularly on my Nexus 5x (which is now heading out in favor of my S7). That said, I haven't seen any stutter on the S7 at all. Has it eased any now that the phone is settling in with all the updates, indexing, etc.?

    I think you and I are experiencing the same thing. At times, when I start to scroll on the screen, it will have a slight lag, then sort of "jerky" type motion until it catches up. There is a small amount of lag sometimes when choosing apps and when swiping left or right... If this continues, I am going to complete a Factory reset and start from scratch.

    This sounds to be an isolated issue with specific users and not an issue with the hardware or OS.

    It may have but I would have to fully check -- My Windows 10 PC behaves just like it did on 7. It only uses around 1 GB on idle and doesn't start chomping up the RAM till I load up my stuff / games.

    Unless the OP comes back and explains what he means by "stutters," this thread is pretty meaningless. I a-a-a-s-s-s-ume he, he, he d-d-doesn't r-r-realy m-mean it st-st-st-stutters.

    Considering the previous iteration of this device was well known for its "stutters", it's not difficult to use your imagination to surmise what's going on here.

    Funny, everyone rushes to defend this phone, and dismiss user experiences.

    By stuttering it has jerky motions at times when switching apps or scrolling

    I don't believe we were dismissing him. We were simply asking him what his issue was exactly and explaining how Android works. Nothing wrong with that at all .

    It is hard to say unless everyone or a large number of people encounter it. I had some stuttering on my note 5 caused by a third party app. Removed app, no more stutter. And the battery chart didn't show that the app used much power either so I had to use process of elimination
