    5.0.0.140 Device Memory vs App Memory

    Guys if you want to merge this into another thread that is fine. I didnt see one relevant other than findings. I like many of you was wondering about the only being able to get max like 50MB free app mem. Today I loaded this on a co-workers storm.. in this order
    1-securtity, then jl wipe
    2-loaded os
    3-checked app free(45.3MB) checked device(879.2)
    4-loaded backup file dropped app free memory to 35.2MB
    5-loaded 3rd party app backup dropped device memory to 778.4MB

    In short what I am sayin is even though we have a lower app memory it looks like all apps are finally saving to device memory. If my memory serves me correct this was not happening before it was backwards. If this proves to not be true and I am wrong just delete this thread. But I think this is true, because I have only a few apps and my app free is 37.2 almost always withing .6MB and my device memory has never been as low as it is now (860ish MB)

    Mine just ran up with 43.4 free.

    A bit low for what i'm used to seeing but my phone is flying through the different screens so far.

    It has only been a couple hrs since I got it working but I have a decent amount of apps on it.

    I am happy with the results so far.

    I kind of find it comical that everyone is being so memory conscious with 40-50mb free while I'm sitting here with less than 20mb on an 8320. I might be just a little jealous.

    Yea the tour has average 125MB app memory but what I was saying check your DEVICE memory compared to normal.. Your app memory might be a lil lower than normal but I will be that it never moves because it seems as if the apps are actually being saved to the DEVICE instead of app memory... thanks smcoldbb for pointing it out to everyone

    But in regards to app mem and device mem... I'm curious to see if others are seeing the same

    you don't get that screen if you delete the "Media" folder that was pre-loaded on the home screen. In other words, if you customize your homescreen apps and delete the "Media" folder and put the icons in other folders, that memory screen won't show. I could be wrong, I just haven't fully explored all of 5.0 goodness.

    I think resetting the folder icon arrangement will fix the problem I mentioned.
