Review: Samsung Galaxy S III
What are the SG3 memory limitations
Anyway, I am continually encountering a "low memory" warning and when I do I lose functionality most notably my email won't send or receive. When I go to my Application Manager I see that there I lose my capability at about 43MB (Free). I assumed this was a RAM measurement but it isn't. I have plenty of free RAM. So this is phone memory, but I don't know how to measure what I Have. Right now it says 371 MB used and 57 MB Free. This is a total of 428 MB Memory. What...???? I though I had gigabites of internal memory.
My question is what is different on the Samsung G3 in this manner. Is this improved by going form 16GB to 32GB in sele...
The memory issue is actual useable memory for applications. You have many GBs of storage for things like songs, movies and certain apps that can be moved to SD cards and etc.
What you just said, is literally what's happening - you're running out of application memory. You'll be able to move some apps to the SD card, but a lot you won't be able to. Most of the time, especially with early Android phones, you'll discover that an email account is taking up 100+ MB of memory. You basically just have to back up everything you need on an SD card, and hard reset the phone.
Anyways, that low storage alert is ...
I update PRL and the other systems more than weekly.
I have all programs moved to SD card that will allow.
I delete all my email occasionially.
I believe my music and pics are on SD card.
I have fairly modern Android (HTC Evo)
Does the new Samsung GS3 have more memory for applications? What are the numbers? I' ve read the specs but having difficulty translating it for this narrow question.
The reason you must do a hard reset, is simply because deleting emails or even removing the account will not *really* delete them, giving you free space. You instead need to hard reset the phone, which actually deletes the email account and the space it consumed.
So you see, you should back up your contacts to your Gmail account, text messages to SD card via an app on the Playstore, and make a list of all important apps to re-download.
Once you've done all of this, it's either in Privacy, or Storage - hit erase all data. Just make sure you pop out your SD card before y...
Does the HTC EVO 4g come into the category of New Enough phone to have more than adequate memory or is it partitioned to allow only so much?
It's called Apps2sd

First, we need to break down the two types of memory. ROM vs RAM.
Just like a computer, your phone is broken down these two types.
Read Only Memory(ROM) is what programs and info are stored on regardless if being used or not.
Random Access Memory(RAM) is the memory needed to run these programs.
I believe what you are experiencing is lack of RAM.
Your Evo's RAM has a working threshold of roughly 50MB. This means that if you drop below that threshold, the "Low On Memory" will alert you that certain programs may or will cease function. This is normal. There is nothing wrong with your phone.
Saving programs to the SD card is a limited fix due to the fact that it does not change the RAM needed to operate. There is ...
The reason I don't believe it is a RAM shortage is when I dip below 50 MB of what the Manage Applications app it says I'm below like 43 mb of "INTERNAL STORAGE" but that is internal storage when I go to the list called "RUNNING" it says (right now) RAM 221 MB used and 135 MB free. It is always a higher number in the 100's even when I drop below 45 in internal storage and my email shuts down.
I'm sort of presuming this is a partition of my Internal Storage set up for apps.
I'm striving to see if this is true and if the partition for Apps on Samsung GS3 is larger and by what amount. Right now it seems to be playing with about 428mb of "internal storage" (I assume ROM) with less than 50 of that "free."
So it se...
