Is this RAM usage normal?
I'm new to the forums, Androids and my SGS3 so please bare with me if I'm asking what seems like a simple question. Also, it's probably worth mentioning now that I do not wish to root my phone - sorry!
I've just done a factory reset on my SGS3 (I leaped straight in when I got a shiny new phone and wanted to start afresh and do some research), and I've noticed the RAM seems to be running quite high - about 70%. I read up that unused RAM is wasted RAM, and that it's only worth worrying about if/when you start to use it all; however I currently have no apps (other than bloatware, much of which I've 'stopped' or disabled if possible) and am thinking that by the time I've installed what I intend to, I'm likely to be using close to maximum.
Is 70% RAM usage with none of my own apps installed normal?
Is there anything I can do to reduce it if/when I reach close to maximum?
There are some processes actively running that I am unsure if they should be or if I can stop:
- MTP Application
- Software update
- Samsung Push Service
- Video Player
- Samsung keyboard
All help is greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
