High memory usage on my Galaxy Tab 3 10", any way to lower it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10". It has 1GB of RAM, however, it is using around 650mb-750mb of it all the time, even when I terminate all the apps. Is there anyway to get it to use less RAM?
I am on Android 4.2.2, there is no newer updates, and the tablet just seems to be lagging a little bit all the time. Like when I leave an app using the 'Home' button, it goes to the home screen, but all I see is the "Apps" Icon for a second, and then all other icons appear. It is just lacking a bit of performance.
I know the Galaxy Tab 3 10" isn't the best tablet out there and I could do with a better one, but this was a gift and I don't really have that much money...

I don't know if you've considered rooting and using a custom rom, but that's always an option. The other is use the apps section in the settings and look at what apps are using all your memory. I imagine there must be some apps running in the background to provide notifications of faster responses (facebook comes to mind) but I'm not entirely sure. You might also consider a factory reset (which would be involved in a custom rom as well), but I'm not sure that's something you're interested in.
