Hey doc, I am pretty sure sooner you’ll run out of memory and would experience poor performance; I’m saying this based on the amount of memory left in your device is right. The Samsung Galaxy S III GT-i9300 only has 1GB RAM and only about 800MB can be used by third-party apps and services; the rest is reserved for system services and apps. Instead of going into details of the Galaxy S3 specs, which we already knew, we will show you how to manage RAM usage in your device.

Closing Apps Running in the Background

  1. Press and hold the Home button.
  2. Running apps will now be displayed. Swipe each one either to left or right to close them.
  3. Press Home button to go back to the Home screen.

Each app eats an amount of RAM and the bigger and heavier the app is, the higher the amount of RAM it eats up.

To be honest, new and updated apps seem to eat up a lot of RAM as they go heavier than before. To be able to avoid poor performance issues due to low memory, the Galaxy S3 offers a way to limit the number of processes.

Limit Galaxy S3 Processes 

  1. From the Home screen, press the Menu button and choose Settings.
  2. Scroll down to and tap on Developer Options.
  3. Find “Limit background processes” option and tap on it.
  4. Limit the Galaxy S3 to run about 6 processes at once.

Six processes would be enough to ensure your phone runs at optimum performance.

  1. I have a probelm with my SIII it keeps changing its prorile from loud to vibration on its own when Im not even near it what shall I do? Also it keeps making that messages whistle when there is no notifications! Its really weird it keeps doing stuff by itself. And one day I was going through the photos and when I was done I found the photos displayed on my smart Tv !! I never connected them that seemed super crazy! I need solutions for my problems I just had the phone 3 weeks ago and it already is driving me nuts!

  2. Nevermind found it but it was just download (had to different download apps) but did that and work great. Thanks you for the solution to the problem.
