You have in no doubt observed that some apps, especially those that are games, take away more battery life than others. This is very true for any device whether it’s a tablet or a phone. Android phones are all the same. Games will obviously tax your battery but apps do also consume a device’s memory i.e the RAM. How slow or quicker an app runs, how great multitasking is on your device relies on the available RAM on the device. As of Android 6.0, users would now be able to look up which apps that are taking up the most memory on their device and optimize how they use the app so the device runs all the more fast and smooth. Here’s the place you can look at the RAM usage for all running apps on your Android phone.
Open the Settings app and tap Memory. You will get an overview of how much RAM is currently available on your device and how much of it is being currently used.
Tap ‘Memory used by apps’ and you will get a complete list of all apps that are currently running (both system and also the third-party apps). Tap the drop-down that says 3 hours and you can see RAM used by each app for the last 6, 12, and 24 hours.
Tap an app to look up how much memory it uses on an average and how often it is run. Obviously, apps that are always running will use more of the RAM.
In view of this information, you can stop the apps that tax your device too heavily and have it run all the more easily. If you have the Facebook app installed, it is likely going to be one of the highest memory hogs (and also battery hog).
