Re: Actual RAM..!!

Are you trying to say that the actual RAM that the system reports does not add up to 512MB?

On my phone Internal Storage is also reported as 380MB

The RAM  335MB. So where's the other 177MB in my case?

Re: Actual RAM..!!

yes it also baffles me. Unless depending where you buy the phone, it has slightly different hardware specs.

If it is that is not good.

Re: Actual RAM..!!

What Sony listed is correct, and what your phone shown is also correct.

What sony shown are the actual DEFAULT amount of memory and ram, but when you look at your phone it shown different because some of its memory/ram are being use to system apps/script,etc. and this "amount" is varies between phone.

Example: it has 1gb memory, which is default.....but then they install Android OS and its apps, thus on your phone the actual amount is less'n, and the same applies for ram.

Re: Actual RAM..!!

That's what I also thought but the system does not seem to display how much RAM is being used by the OS. Probably have to work it out indirectly
