The restricted memory capacity of smartphones is being thrown out the window as more high-performance and graphics-intensive Android apps and games are released.

As a result, many smartphone manufacturers are releasing devices with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

While purchasing a smartphone with more RAM is an excellent approach to improve performance, many Android users cannot afford to do so.

There are various methods for identifying memory-intensive apps.

To speed up your Android phone, you can either kill the apps or delete them. This can help you save even more battery life.

Before you blame games or other resource-intensive apps for draining your phone's battery and slowing it down, keep in mind that the Facebook or Instagram apps are the ones that use up the most power and RAM on any Android device.

This is how to figure out which app is using the most RAM and causing your phone to slow down.

According to Gadgets, here's how to figure out which app is using the most RAM and slowing down your phone.

  1. Go to the Settings menu.

  2. Scroll down to storage/memory and tap it.

  3. The storage list will show you which apps are taking up the most space on your phone. ...

  4. Select 'Memory' and then 'Memory Used by Apps.'
