    Yes, it's normal for the Android Operating System to have RAM partly full all the time. It's more efficient, and removing ram only causes the system to find more to have ready (like laying a dinner table).

    Others can describe it better, but your device is working fine.

    If you are concerned about battery drain, that's something else we can look in to.

    yep looks fine to me as well. @Madasa could not have said it any better.

    just curious as to why you are concerned about ram?

    Everyone needs to stop obsessing with ram usage, Samsung emails, etc....

    Manually manipulating memory is just micromanaging something you shouldn't do, Android's inherent memory management is more advanced than any of us are. When you start up a gaming app it gets loaded into active memory and the memory management 'pushes' out idle processes. If the app requires more RAM than your phone can provide, that is a problem but one that's about using an app that's beyond the capabilities of the device itself, not how it handles memory. If you're into higher end games you need to invest more into buying a phone with a lot of RAM (and a fast processor -- CPU and GPU).
