[Q] RAM Usage increases when Force Closing?
New owner of a Nexus 7 2013 here. Had it for a month or so now.
So the device came shipped with 4.3, I updated the device to 4.4.2 OTA. Weird thing is, everytime I "Force Close" an app from Settings, the RAM usage decreases, then it INCREASES!
Google Play Store (44mb), current RAM usage: 444mb
Force close Play Store, current RAM Usage: 400mb
*a couple of seconds later after display refresh*
current RAM Usage:480mb
This keeps going. No matter how many apps I force close, the RAM usage keeps increasing until the point where it reaches ~660-~700mb!
Is this normal? Does this happen to anybody else? Is there something wrong with the garbage collector? Also my RAM usage is in the 400mb range on startup and a LOT of apps run on startup which I need to force close manually (is it normal they run on startup?).
