How to find the apps that use the most memory on Android
First, we’ll need to enable Android’s hidden “Developer Options”. There are some handy features hidden here, including the ability to see which apps are using the most memory. Eliminate this before continuing.
Then swipe down once or twice (depending on your phone) from the top of the screen to bring up the full Quick Settings menu, and then tap the gear icon.
Scroll down to “System”.
Now select “Developer options”.
Press “Memory” to view RAM usage statistics.
You will see “Average memory usage” at the top of the screen. Scroll down a little further and select “Memory in use by applications”.
Here you will see the RAM usage by the apps. You can adjust the delay with the drop-down menu at the top of the screen.
Apps are ranked based on how much memory they use, so the biggest spenders will be at the top of the list. “Android OS”, “Android System” and “Google Play Services” will always be up. Scroll down to find third-party apps.
