So my phone has 4 Gb of ram but I always seem to have 2.2 GB used and 512mb are reserved for the OS so what is causing this?

Hi @Whatdoyouknow04 

 

This is just how the Android is designed. It always reserves some RAM to ensure smooth operation. And the more RAM you have, the more is reserved by the OS. Completely normal.
