Re: Monitoring RAM usage under OREO

Hi @trashcan,

 

To view the average memory use:

 

  1. Make sure that Developer options is enabled. (You can enable this if you go to: Settings > System > About phone > Tap Build number until it says you are a developer.)
  2. In Settings, tap System.
  3. Tap Developer options, then tap Memory.

 

Let me know if this answers your question. Slightly smiling Face

Re: Monitoring RAM usage under OREO

Hello Emil, thanks for the effective solution. I noticed now that Oreo is a memory hog, memory usage us 2.4Gbcompared if compared to the last Nougat version which is just 2.0.Are you aware of battery and memory saving tips exclusive for Oreo.. Occasionally I find my Xz to sluggish, and seems to drain more battery juice as well.. :-(

Re: Monitoring RAM usage under OREO

Facing same problem guys. Oreo (memory eater, some icons are missing like location from status bar,)  XZ is no longer smooth and fast it feels lagging or something just can't explain. Why?
