Do you think it's enough? Or do you run into issues regular when multitasking?

Does ics take 512mb ram by default seems a lot.. As there are older devices running ics with only 512mb ram

Let's put it this way, 1gb is FAR more than enough for ICS with a load of apps running simultaneously. No ICS uses around 200mb

If i kill everything on a ram manager the xolo rom is taking up 512mb of ram with nothing open . What could the extra 300mb be? :wacko:

Seriously, unused RAM is wasted RAM. Don't worry if some screen tells you that nothing is free. It's fine, really.

Android does a pretty good job of managing the RAM these days. Remove your task killer and just be happy. In fact a task killer will just make your device slower when you switch to a task you want to use again, plus the overhead of the task killer's service. It's just not needed. It wasn't really needed in the Android 2.x days, and it's certainly not needed now.

If there is a app or service (from an app) which is running in the services list all the time, slowing down your phone and gobbling up battery, then simply uninstall it and find an alternative. Android is at a really good critical mass right now, damn near everything has a alternative and developers should never be rewarded for writing crap resource hogging software. Especially facebook.

For today, 1GB is more than enough, if Android does actually run out, then it does a pretty sweet job of managing the running apps itself. As an app developer, it's drummed into you all the time that your app could be killed by Android at any time to save memory, and your app has to deal with that gracefully.

Great info thanks. Being a developer can you see 1gb ram lasting for a couple of years or will apps etc start needing 2gb which is going into flagship phones?

I can run xp quite happily on 1gb so not sure why these new phones are creeping in with 2gb

Purely to try and differentiate them, and therefore to sell more.

That may be true, but it is also immensely useful. Using Skype, I can call while roaming for cents a minute, and not dollars as the operator charges. Therefore sometimes it is quite useful to have a phone that can run even clunky apps. (And yes, Skype and Facebook are two terrible resource hogs.)

... which was my point, not how useful it is.
