My Zenfone 8 runs in dynamic mode with auto refresh rate. From what I saw in Mobile Manager, it consumes 4.5 to 5 GB of RAM in average without any running application on the screen. The smallest number I got was 4.4 GB. Why does it take so much RAM? can it be reduced for the same performance? for the sake of battery life...


  • With Android, there is no advantage on reducing used memory.

  • RAM is suppposed to be utilized as much as possible - e.g. for caching. If it is free it is waste for $ paid.

    Install "Ramtruth" app to see details

  • Linux behaviour. More RAM utilised the better.
