Calculator RAM leak? Post a screenshot of your RAM usage and detail

So yesterday I got my cousin's Nexus 4 side by side with my Moto G, and I went to apps, and I noticed something: the Nexus 4 has about 400 MB used of RAM (out of 2 gigs) and the Moto G was using a little over 500...
The weird thing is, we are identical users (no useless apps, just what we need), except he has the Facebook app installed (which makes my Moto G unusable due to RAM usage)

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT COULD BE THIS INEXPLICABLE DIFFERENCE? I mean, we are both on Dalvik, both were on a fresh reboot, background apps were the same, and he has the Facebook app installed (~80 MB extra RAM USED)

One more weird thing I noticed was that the Moto G used some extra 5 MB of RAM for some 3rd party apps (SwiftKey and Whatsapp)

I have the stock xt1033 4.4.4 (asian ds)

Can you also post a screenshot of you RAM usage and which apps are open?
Motorola Moto G 4G (XT1039) [peregrine]

Past devices:
3. Moto G 16GB dual SIM (XT1033) [falcon]
Got in the sea with it in my pocket, goodbye

2. Samsung Galaxy S3 mini (GT I8190) - great development, bad battery, awesome phone to have as an XDA member, bad phone to have if you rely on Samsung, never rely on Samsung [golden]
1. LG Optimus One P500 - 4 year old budget device, still has KitKat o.O [thunderg/p500]

Sorry OT, couldn't resist myself asking this as I'm trying to find how menu button icons can be replaced with the ones you have running on the phone like nexus 5? I'm on stock Asia ROM . tried finding the option on nova launcher but....
