Default [Q] Xperia Home Redraw

Hi guys. I've noticed ever since I got the Xperia z1 that the Xperia home launcher acts weird after quitting certain applications.

When I exit an application to go to the homescreen, all apps shortcuts and widgets would have disappeared and would then begin to load up after 2 seconds. Which sucks of a phone with such a highest spec.

Is this a ram issue which isn't keeping the home launcher in RAM memory?

Of a 2 GB ram, I always have only about 250 MB free. I don't know what's taking the ram up so much.

Anything I can do?

Which rom are you on and what apps have you got running in the background?

250mb? Are you kidding me? I have 700-850mb free ram typically

I aint using any custom rom.
My bootloader is locked, not rooted and I am on the. 290 (4.3)

The ram is surprising. Most of my apps are using 58mb, 30mb, 20mb and lower. But i still have about 1350mb in use at times. No games on background.

I would recommend reverting back to 4.2.2 .257 Stock rom,

I tried 4.3 .290, it gobbles way too much ram, no idea why.

I'm waiting for Kitkat 4.4 before I upgrade the rom.

regards

Still smooth anyways.

I too had redraws the last few days, and remembered that i didnt had them in the beginning. Started to think what could caused it and thought what was changed...

I went to Settings-Developers options and unchecked "Dont keep activities".

No redraw, checked it and there it was again.

The redraw could be a problem in the Sony launcher it self, I had the same problem with Action Launcher, but now is solved.

The way Android uses RAM, the free ram doesn't mean anything, to get a better performance avoiding to compile an app you use very often, Android keeps recent opened apps in RAM as long as the RAM is not needed, when something else claims the RAM Android will "close" some apps to free RAM.
