[Off-Topic] [Device Team] RAM Management On Android : No Need To Clear Space.

Hi Mi Fans,

Memory full is a pretty annoying notification to receive from our smartphone. Some people even install app killers or other RAM management apps in order create space. But does manual RAM management for android really make sense?

So, now let's discuss in detail.

First of all let us know,What is RAM?

In a smartphone, like in any computer, there are multiple types of memory. These have varying speeds,different price tags and operate differently. Our internal memory for e.g. Is slow, cheap and saves data constantly, even when disconnected from a power supply as a result, this is where apps and app data are stored, as well as photos and videos.
RAM (Random Access Memory) is expensive, but much faster than internal memory. However,it will forget everything if not connected to a power supply.It serves as a type of work surface for our apps-to store the temporary data needed to use the phone.

Android RAM full - Reason to Panic?
Having full RAM isn't a bad thing,and is even desired. As Android has it's roots in Linux and Unix,the Linux system kernel has set rules for memory management and these rules follow the philosophy that free internal memory is wasted memory.

Free Memory Is Wasted Memory

This idea that RAM inside Android needs to be cleared manually is a misconception. Emptied RAM would mean that you need to constantly relaunch apps.This would cost time and power, and reduce battery life.

Here are some apps that we should not have in our phone:-

Smartphones quickly become consumed by unnecessary apps that not only take up storage space, but can also affect our handset’s performance and battery life. Well,enough is enough - It's time to clean up our smartphone:

->Apps that claim to save RAM:-
Apps running in the background eat up our RAM and use battery life, even if they’re on standby. The idea behind apps that claim to boost our memory is to close these background apps systematically. Unfortunately, this exacerbates the problem.
Apps running in the background have to restart after we close them. Memory and battery life is used to restart the apps, and this constant closing and restarting of apps can make our phone unstable. So, these memory saving apps don’t make any sense. Furthermore, Android manages RAM usage automatically and knows when to run an app or not, so third party apps aren’t necessary.

->Clean Master(or any cleaning app):-
Cleaning apps promise to clean up our phone to boost performance while it's true that deleted applications sometimes leave behind some cached data,it's not necessary to download a dedicated cleaner.
Clean master and similar apps often require a lot of battery power, and their in-app advertising has the potential to take a chunk out of your monthly data allowance. Remove such apps at your earliest convenience.

->So-called Antivirus Apps are unnecessary for most:-
Our Android device and the Play Store can already do everything that antivirus apps can.For theft protection, Android device manager works securely without an additional app.And whether an app is actually hiding malware, Google checks with the Play Store automatically.
So-called Antivirus apps are only useful if we are often downloading and installing APK files found outside the Play Store.Then,Anti-malware apps can examine these apps during installation and offer warnings before we open them.However, we can't disinfect our smartphone.The best method to do this is-ironically-without an app.

->Battery Savers:-
Similar to RAM boosters battery-saving apps are often a load of rubbish. These apps offer a solution to one of the most-loathed smartphone problems in the world and promise miracles. There are only a few exceptions to the truth that battery-saving apps are merely billboards disguised as useful apps.

->Difficult to delete manufacturer bloatware:-
Many smartphones have a lot of apps pre-install.Whether it's apps for hotel booking, games,or functionality questionable office apps: many manufacturers their own useless apps alongside the compulsory set of apps from Google. Ideally, it's just storage space wasted, but in the worst case,they take up battery life,screen real estate and can't even be uninstalled.
It is therefore worthwhile to look through your app list and delete the preinstalled apps.The easiest way to do this is by grabbing the respective app in the app drawer and then pulling it onto the app info icon.Then we will see if the app is uninstallable or only deactivatable.The latter option simply means the app is no longer launched upon restart and disappears from the app drawer,but it continues to occupy space anyway-these deactivated apps can only be completely removed after rooting our phone.

Managing Android RAM : Conclusion -
Do we need to clear out our internal memory? No!
We only need to take action if our smartphone becomes noticeably slower.Generally speaking, Android devices are designed to optimally manage RAM themselves. Closing apps in the overview may improve the overall running of the device, but this has nothing to do with RAM efficiency.
And this isn't a bad thing at all.
Android’s automatic RAM management is the fastest and most efficient system we could wish for.So,leave the memory management to Android,and it's operating system will leave the fun to you.

Thank you

After MIUI 8.5.4 the RAM has 1.4 GB of system and memory caches. When cleaned it is 48% automatically goes back to 78%. Where is the question of RAM management. Is it unusual feature?
