(I hope I'm asking this in the right place.)
I have a simple (I hope) question about the Android OS. I think I understand that it monitors the apps running and leaves enough spare ram so the device can operate well. It seems to try to keep about 30MB free in my device (T-mobile Comet, Huawei U8150, I think. Running 2.2) but my device is slow and acts kind of buggy unless I keep about 50MB free. I've used manual and automatic apps to free up memory (which partially defeats the purpose and is ironic to use memory to free up memory). If the amount of ram the OS tries to keep free could just be set by the user (increased from ~30MB to ~50MB), then I wouldn't have to run an app to make the OS work like I'd prefer it work, snappier. (Forgive me for being a lightweight chicken but I don't want to root or change the OS of my device.) Other than uninstalling resident apps (I really don't want to part with any more of what I've already pared down to that must be resident) is there a setting to make it keep more ram free? Thanks for your help!
