    Just throwing this one out there, does having more app icons and widgets on the home screen and other screens cause more of a draw on the ram due to the amount of shortcuts and and app readiness processes in the OS? And if so would keeping the icons or widgets in the app drawer and not on home screen lower RAM usage by default?

    icons don't really matter. The number of screens might, but not so much. The Widgets are the ones that use up battery and RAM because they are actually open actively running applications.
