RAM Usage

I'm just curious, does anyone else have unusually high RAM usage? I'm rooted and on SkyDragon, using SkyDragon kernel. My RAM is always between 1.9Gb and 2.3Gb. I have no idea why though because when I look through the running apps, there's not much there, not enough to make it that high anyway.

This would probably be a good question in the skydragon thread. I use Android Tuner Pro to monitor and running stock / rooted i am averaging 953mb.

When they say you have 3gb of ram you don't. Kit Kat uses most of it

AWESOME G3

Oh, I know that. But it still seems unusually high.

1.5-2.0 used here. 1.9-2.0 is before closing all recent apps, 1.5 after.

I'm rooted with SkyDragon kernel and upon a reboot, RAM is 1.5GB free, but as the day wears on, it drops to between 400-600MB free, usually around 500MB free and closes other apps as needed to maintain that 500MB free.

It was the same before I rooted or flashed the new kernel, just seems the way that Android is running the RAM on its phones nowadays.
