    hi guys

    i have a situation which you might also encounter :

    1. if i always turn on the phone even when i charge the battery so it always up for couple of days, i found a huge number of ram memory 720/800, and it only decrease into 5xx or 600 if i clear the memory

    2. if i do the opposite, turn off the phone each time i charge the battery, it runs on 250 or 3xx if i clear the ram memory

    3. back to point 1, i found out it required 220 MB only just for 'samsung keypad' service. but on point 2, it only 85 MB. (see it on setting > application > service running)

    4. i only execute an apps which consume small amount of memory, such as twitter, photaf, hootsuite, etc which each of them uses below 7 MB, the rest of it were small service running on background like android market, application update and so on

    so the question remain :

    1. does the SAME SERVICE required for ram memory always increasing along with the uptime of the smartphone itself?

    2. if it so, how can we maintain it?

    3. if no 1 is wrong / doesnt make sense, so what is the root cause?

    please, dont tell me that this is the samsung /android behaviour... im quite new with this samsung and android stuff, just migrate from blackberry...

    need you highly advice :)

    There's not something wrong with your phone and looks like there's no need to clear the memory (that was recommended for older android versions as they couldn't do it automatically).
    I read the phone keeps loading in the memory the services used more often so I realized there's o point in clearing up the memory as the services are back in short time. I also saw my battery decreasing rapidly when I had a memory manager and the clear memory setting at small intervals was activated.
