Re: Actual RAM..!!

No I do not have any Task Killer/Ram apps/Battery Apps installed

However following are the apps

McAfee Antivirus, Skype, Maps, Mobile Voip ,One for news, Quick Pic, my Emails, One translator as i live in China, Currency Converter , We chat, Whatsapp and two of the cloud storage app (Dropbox and Box) thats it.

Restarted my device 2 days ago, but at anypoint of time free RAM is around 100MB only.

Re: Actual RAM..!!

McAfee does take a big part of your RAM, yahoo mail/messenger slow down phones.

go to settings > apps > running > take a screenshot

restart your phone

and do the same, post both screenshots here

Re: Actual RAM..!!

as you can see your phone is fine, the problem are the apps, you don't need mcafee at all, also you can disable unused apps like office  suite etc. those chat/messaging apps will use RAM as more conversations are used.

Re: Actual RAM..!!

Thanks man, One more prob i am facing if you had ever experienced that or someone shared.

Whenever i open Album on my phone the sceen goes mad and it starts flickering and almost blinking. Same happenes if i open photo from the Album . It starts blinking and i am unable to zoom or share or anything. This is very much annoying. However after a restart it works fine for some hours but again the problem is same.

Re: Actual RAM..!!

it might be an app, repair your phone, do not install any app, uninstall mcafee, do not sync, open the pictures see if the problem persists
