Default How much RAM does the LG Optimus V have?

I've searched high and low and have found every spec imaginable except the amount of RAM. I have an Optimus V on VM and it runs amazingly well. Coming from an Intercept on VM the phone seems like a powerhouse so I wouldn't be surprised if it has a healthy amount of RAM.

so the SD card adds 2GB more of "user storage"?

How do you download to the SD card instead of using the built-in memory for downloads?

Apps install to phone memory, not the card. You have to move them yourself.

If you look under Applications in Settings, an app that can be moved will have the Move To SDCard button active. Click it to move the app to the card.

Any installed app that can be moved will show up in the Applications list with the Move To SDCard option enabled.

The easiest way to move apps to the card is with an app like App 2 SD Free or SDMove, which can move apps to the card moved more quickly.

If your phone is rooted Link2SD is WAY better, you can move any app you want to your sd card with it, but with the Optimus V kernel you have to have two fat32 partitions on your sd card. I have my SD card split to 12GB for Regular data storage and 4GB just for apps, but I find Link2SD better because you can put any app at all onto your sd card as well as it's dalvik-cache which saves more space.

That's just what's left of the 512MB NAND Flash memory onboard available for app storage, etc. for the user.

It has 512MB of DRAM for the OS and applications, etc. running part of which is allocated as video memory for the Adreno GPU(64 or 96MB IIRC) and a small chunk allocated for the linux kernel so actual total available RAM ends up being around 400MB for the OS/apps IIRC.

Does the OpV allocate memory better than the Intercept, or do I just have more ram to play with on this phone? Is there that much of a difference between Android 2.2.2 (Intercept) and 2.2.1 (OpV), or is it the hardware?

I used Memory Monitor on the Intercept and it always said like 26mb free of 150mb... whereas on the OpV it normally says 329mb free of 424mb. This phone hasn't slowed down since I got it and I have more apps running on it than I did on the Intercept!

This phone is the bomb, and it feels like I went from a Ford Pinto to a 69 Chevelle SS lol.

Hi folks, I just came across this thread. Greg4Android has the correct memory specs.
Trilla's link to specs is also correct, it was just interpreted incorrectly. Look closely, it says: RAM capacity: 512 MiB
ROM capacity: 512 MiB, including 140MiB user-accessible non-volatile storage

MiB = Mebibytes. Look it up.

Mebibytes, huh? Seriously? I thought 1 MB is 1024 KB, but then I looked up the wiki and there it was saying 1MB is actually 1000000 Bytes. This is crap. (I mean the usage of the term Mebibytes)
Anyways, good to know that Optimus V has 512 MB RAM, uhhh, I mean 512 MiB.. They are on sale for $80 at BestBuy with a free $35 VirginMobile card.

FYI, not sure where some people are getting their info. Unless they have changed the phone (and I noticed the Optimus S is now 512mb of memory (not RAM)) it is definitely only 170mb.

That being said, unless you are willing to root and go the whole Link2SD route this phone is VERY frustrating. With half the memory filled with VM crap apps you have room for 5-15 apps of your own.

With Link2SD it's nearly unlimited.

OLD, but I just can't help myself. It's what happen when you let loose base ignorant MBAs in the techworld. They "magically" made hard drives bigger one year that way pulling that BS meanwhile overlook 50y of tradition.

An example of why people need to learn the difference between Program Memory and Program Storage.

RAM is not App Storage.

RAM is for running applications, not where you install them to. 160MB for installing Apps is not the amount of RAM the phone has available for running them.

The Optimus models have 512MB of RAM onboard with about 450MB allocated to user apps.

That is 272MB more than mine has, unless you are counting the system partition that really isn't accessible.

I only get 178MB for apps, and that's with a custom ROM. I think his info is a little flawed.

I have 419MB of RAM. Checked by the "Running" section in apps manager

I have 179MB of internal storage available for Apps. This is apparently supposed to be more but is locked up in system OS storage...

Apparently these numbers can vary slightly per phone much like the CPU overclock speed.

It can vary depending on what ROM is installed.

Again. App storage is not RAM.

I was pointing out the apps don't have 450MB of storage. They only have 170 something, depending on the ROM. This is called internal memory. With the ROM I have Installed I have 178.87 allocated to internal memory, that's all (and that's more than the stock ROM). I can't get more than 150MB-155MB worth of app's in the internal memory before I get a low memory warning.
That's why we have to use App2SD or Link2SD to allow us to install more apps. If there was 450MB of internal memory we wouldn't need App2SD or Link2SD.

Maybe you could point out how much of the RAM is dedicated for the OS, GPU, Video CPU, etc. , etc. Not all RAM is free, a lot is dedicated.

This would prove your point in a way that would clear this issue up for everybody.

Note: Please be as specific as possibly in order to clear this up.

Thanks.

I see what he's saying Andy. Go back up and recheck what he said.

I researched the whole RAM issue. I was hoping I didn't have to type all the info in so other members could get a clear understanding on what RAM is and how much is allocated (and to what ), and how much is free. I was hoping twelfth would.
I was just trying to point out the issue with the space on the internal memory for apps is all.
I wasn't disputing the info he posted about the RAM at this time, just hoping he would give all the members the lowdown skinny on RAM on an Android device.
