When RAM usage is high, that means the OS is doing it's job and teeing up all the apps you are likely to run next. If those apps were not ready to go and waiting in RAM, they would need to be loaded into RAM first, which causes lag.
thanks for the information. The phone is defiantly not slow and didnt think it was a major issue unless it affected performance.
