Z5 RAM usage.

Hi. I'm just curious as to how RAM usage works. I don't usually use my phone on apps and whatnot but routinely use Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, and Instagram, and turns out my memory consumes upto 80%. Like I'm only left with 800mb out of the 2.7gb memory. After every use of apps, i usually immediately close them. I even tried some app to "clean" and "release" some space and memory but nothing changes.

Is there something wrong or is this normal?

Re: Z5 RAM usage.

Background services related to many of the apps you mentioned. don't worry about it, as android needs more ram it will release the ram from one of the background tasks that are deemed non vital.
High ram use is normal in all phones, it means much data is already stored ready for quicker loading when you open the apps.
