    I'm seeing a maximum of 2.7gb of ram in the phone, but on avg I only have 800mb-1.2gb free, is this normal? I've gone as low as 200. Currently after a restart I'm sitting at 1.3gb free and 1.4gb used...

    I don't want to use clean-master anymore as it seems like it is pointless, but it does free up ram but it is amazing how fast that ram is used again, what about all of you Note 4 owners?

    2.12gb with 4 apps open but inactive. 1.7gb when all closed. Kinda irrelevant unless you've just done an out of the box reset. Why does it matter anyway? Android manages it perfectly ok.

    You really should stop worrying about the RAM that you have available. Android 4.4 manages it really well and with such a powerful phone you really should not be worried about slow downs. RAM memory is there to be used. You should not be killing background apps or clearing RAM. What is the point of having a 3 GB RAM phone if only half of it is going to be used? It's like buying a mansion but only using two rooms. You get me?

    You're thinking of RAM utilization like it is a Windows OS PC or something.

    Android handles RAM utilization completely different. It is almost irrelevant how much RAM is in use at any given time with Android OS.

    THIS. Android loads ram up and is how it rolls. The only way not to load up the ram within a few hundred megs of max is to have apps installed that total a lot less than the actual ram size. Stock apps though would fill it up some- especially if Qhd content.

    Probably the biggest false impression is free ram concerns with Android- 4.0 on up.

    Unless you have apps closing themselves constantly, you must never worry about RAM in Android, it does a great job handling it.

    That is what I figured, I never have ever had above 2gb free though, I assume that is because Android is using the ram correctly. Neat. Haven't had a crash yet.

    And @ Dportal it was because I figured with a 3gb ram phone I would have figured had at-least 1GB free always xD, Android operates differently for sure. Bonerp's 2.12gb free is something I've never seen on my own N4, but apparently don't have too.
