The S20 FE (4G) keeps having RAM management issues despite of recent updates and 2 factory resets, why?

RAM management issues like I said especially with games completely reloading again.

Well just saying RAM management issues is an extremely broad term and means nothing unless you can actually say what the problem is, if games reloading is the only issue, that's not a symptom of bad RAM management, thats what its supposed to do...
8GB of RAM is a lot, but don't expect it to keep up with the likes of the Note series with 12GB.
Once it gets full it will automatically close apps to keep space, not to mention app sleep settings can shut the apps down if they've been idling in the background too long.

Sorry but that's a terrible sign of bad RAM management. If you are playing a game and you stop it for few minutes then when you go back the whole game reloads again, what is that then? And I said mainly games but it's the same with YouTube and other apps.

By the way my Galaxy Note 10 lite and M51 with the same or less RAM and inferior processors don't have these issues so it has nothing to do with the amount of RAM.

Thats bad user RAM management, you're trying to get it to keep everything in RAM, it's not supposed to do that.
If the RAM was always full keeping your games in the background then you'd be complaining about poor battery life. There is a balance, and better battery life is more important to consumers than keeping lots of games running in the background.

But again you're blaming this all on "RAM management", there is no evidence to suggest this is an issue with RAM management, as apps being closed after idling is a sign of good RAM management, there's other reasons why your apps may be closing, but again, this term RAM management is way too broad. You may as well just say "cpu problem".

You need to specify legitimate, measurable symptoms, treated as individual variables, rather than chopping it all up to poor RAM management. Tell me how much RAM your using, what apps are running in the background, how long they've been running, how much RAM each one is consuming, what your idle RAM usage is...
If you tell someone the issue is poor RAM management, noone can help you. RAM management is part of the OS, it doesn't glitch out.

What are you talking about? Why doesn't that apply to all Samsung's phones equally? That didn't even happen before the OneUI 3.1 update. Where is the logic in what you are trying to defend? In any case it's up to the consumer to decide whether we want better battery life or keep the apps open in the background. Stop making excuses. That shouldn't happen AT ALL and it's a sign of a bad optimisation.

It has nothing to do with One UI and everything to do with Android 11 new battery optimisation methods, by suspending background app activity. Nothing to do with RAM...
