Default [Q] Constantly high RAM usage?

Every time I press the home button from an app that I've been in for more than ten seconds it has to reload the entire thing. Also, multitasking is so minimal if I exit the browser, wait three seconds and open it, it has to reload.
When I clear all apps open there's always 1.4gb of RAM always being used. I'm on 100% stock with 4.4, any ideas?

Open task man and see if any are using a lot of memory.

Its likely an app you installed has a memory leak.

Sound like a memory leak

Give this a read

Also try a factory reset.

DONATE TO ME
did you try to tweak task manager a bit?
1. enter task manager
2. press menu key > settings
3. choose "stop services"
4. select apps services you want to kill upon exiting the app

i have only core important apps kept in memory (gmail, avast, phone, messaging,...)
