Did Verizon OTA for S5- RAM went down to 1.67 gb from 1.8gb available?


AC Question

I am not very tech savy and new to android (former iPhone user), but the RAM I had available was 1.8 (using about 1.1-1.3 at a time) before the update, now all that is available is 1.67. Should I be concerned? Thanks for your help.

Also any suggestions on how to make my transition to android, would be greatly appreciated. So, far I am absolutely loving the phone!!!

Nothing significant to be worried about. It's likely that the update added new features which now reserve the ~0.1 GB of RAM that was lost from before.
