3GB is more than enough for current applications. 1GB is used by Android, leaving 2GB free. Android manages RAM very effectivey, allocating the RAM to the current app, unloading apps that aren't used for a certain amount of time.
An Android device should be using all or nearly all of it's available RAM to maximise effectiveness.

You'll find with "some" other brands, their launchers use absolutely shedloads of ram, forcing Android to close background tasks as it's designed to do. Adding more ram "hides" this and allows more background tasks to remain open than just 4-5 due to launcher being a hog.
Xperia home is very light and won't act in the same way as more hungry launchers.
On a modern, optimised handset, 3GB is ample, and keeps the system nice and snappy
