help with samsung tab 2 high ram usage

I have a new Samsung galaxy tab 2 7 with 4 gb of memory. I have not downloaded any questionable apps from what I can tell. The problem is when my tab is sitting it will slowly climb up to 500-600mb used out of 687mb. If I don't clear the memory each time my tab becomes pretty slow. Any help out there nation?

That's not very much RAM these days, even for a mobile OS. Not a whole lot you can do. Reflashing a stripped down OS may help a little but I wouldn't bother unless you're fairly good with technology.

The issue really lies in the fact that when I do clear the memory it will say up to 16 applications were closed when the tablet is just sitting.

Feel free to stop in on the android thread in here. Your taking up ram still because you have to have apps open such as sync, a launcher, and a ton of background processes your tablet actually needs so killing them all doesn't do much which is why you see it come back. Touch wiz also tends to destroy ram so either go with AOSP ROM or deal with it most likely.

Things always run in the background. Otherwise a lot of the functions of your phone would not work.

If you don't have an application checking for email, you'll never get email notifications. Things like that add up. If you have different things set to sync, try turning them off. What processes/applications are typically running in the background?

I'm not in anyway a tech guru. I suppose I just deal with it.

The processes running in the background are normal processes from what I can tell

Well I assumed that. But if you list them out along with their RAM usage, we may be able to help guide you to which things you can save RAM from

meh, i disagree, its certainly not a high amount of ram these days but its not low either.

you can download advanced task manager on google play and selectively kill processes that are using a lot of ram. keep in mind that it is pointless to kill processes that you plan on using again soon because your device will just have to re-open them.

Task managers are absolutely useless on android devices.

lifehacker explains why
