And my nexus 4 has 1.8 of the 2gb available.

Dalwik might as well use as much as possible since it's needed since all the apps on Android runs on VM.

RAM is there to be used.

Well, obviously, yes.

The issue here is not the fact it's being used, but rather the lack of visibility around what the missing chunk of RAM is being used for.

You also have to consider our screen has about 4x the pixels. It takes a lot from our gpu to make everything smooth and clean hence the extra 400mb dedicated to it in 4.2.2 since 4.2.1 was a bit laggy graphically

I'm wondering about the MemTotal: 1124832 kB

Shouldn't show /proc/meminfo the complete 2GB for MemTotal?

No because it is showing what is avalilable to the os, there are 2+ pages here explaining where your missing ram has gone
