View Full Version : Nexus S RAM

10-18-2011, 06:09 AM
The Samsung Google Nexus S is toted at 512 mb RAM, yet when I go into running apps, and add up used/free, I get 303 mb.

Is this a known issue, and the kernel is not recognizing hardware?
Is it just my phone, do I have a (odd sized) bad RAM sector?

Kernel is

HO-kay, Lets do this: Can I get the next person who views this message, (Yes, YOU reading it NOW, ) Look at your Nexus S, Settings/Applications/Manage Apps/Running Tab look down at the bottom, and itll tell you whats being used, whats free, can you post those, or add them together and post it, or even add them together, compare it to the number i have at top, and reply "Yep, thats what Im getting" or "nope, Im getting 512mb of RAM showing."

I did search, so I apologize if this is addressed elsewhere on the forum.

Same for me:

155 Mo used, 134 Mo free...

Have you found a solution?

Not so much as accepted thats all the OS recognizes, and perhaps when the day dawns that ICS comes to my version of Nexus S, it might utilize the whole amount, Or Samsung /Google releases a media blurb stating " We dont know where it went,.. it was right there in the blueprint, but it got lost when it went to line, its a mystery"
