I just got the S8+ last week. Didn't install anything yet except the preinstalled samsung note. And whatever i do, even right after reset, it shows me i have only 3.5GB ram of the supposed 8GB.

 

So... do i have to assume it only has 4gb and it only says it has 8? could the ram be broken? 

I am very close to just return the tablet and get the money refunded or at least demand a replacement with working ram.

no way the clean system takes up way more than 50% of the ram. in comparison, my old Tab A and my S21 fe smartphone show realistic ram and ram usage.

Ok. I was just expecting.. more ram? With 8GB and not apps running, i didn't expect the system to take up 4,5GB/ more than half of ram. What ram does a s7 fe have left, rhose have GB ram AFAIK. Anyway, if that's normal, then I will see if I can compare with someone who also has the s8+. 

Thank you for replying

Haha nothing to worry brother. OSs are advanced now 4GB Ram is nothing to them. They need it all. Android cannot use 500MB thats way too tiny. So what that means is yu got 8GB. 4.5 is being used by the system and everything else. 3.5 is doing nothing. For most apps that's pretty good enough.
