Default Huawei Ascend Plus Low Memory

The Huawei Ascend Plus Only Has 387 mb. Of System Ram And Only 630 mb. Of Internal Storage Memory. The Pre installed apps Eat Up Most Of The System Ram Leaving 48 To 50 mb. With Only One App Installed. The Apps Stop Responding And Close And the Phone Lags Because Of The Low Memory. All Of The Straight Talk Androids Have The Same Low Memory Issues.

All of the cheaper phones have that issue.

However, understand the difference between storage and RAM and how Linux (which is what Android is) handles RAM.

As long as you have enough free storage for the system and the running apps to store the things they need to store (they store things temporarily, changing constantly), the phone will work.

You have to have enough free RAM for the apps that are currently running (including the system itself). That means that in a phone with 512MB of RAM, trying to run a 1GB app is silly - there's no room to put it, no matter how much storage you have. But a phone with 387MB of RAM and a slow processor is going to lag - there's nothing you can do to change that.

However, don't look at the free RAM and decide that certain apps are "eating up all your RAM". Linux considers unused RAM to be wasted RAM, so it's almost always filled with something.

You want a lot of free storage, but you're not ever going to have a lot of free RAM. (You can use app-killer apps to free up a lot of RAM but that's silly. Android knows how to handle RAM better than you do, so let it do its thing and it'll run better.) Read RAM: What it is, how it's used, and why you shouldn't care

This phone isn't bad. Dual core 512mb ram 3.7g of internal memory. Its not the best but its def not the worst. $149 can't complain

I don't know were your getting your memory figures unless your looking
At your storage info in settings or apps. Can't go by that.

The phone comes shipped with 512mb ram and 3.7gb of internal memory
