Hi Motorola Team,
I've observed that RAM usage of my device is much on the higher side, given the apps/processes that I run. Whenever I have tried to check using Developer Options >> Process Stats, my device memory has always hovered b/w low and critical.
At any given point of time, my device is consuming around 70% of RAM. I understand there could be multiple facets involved here & I will try to put down as many as I can.
List of Apps in the order of memory usage:
1. Google Play Services -- 64.6 MB
2. Settings -- 53 MB
3. Google Keyboard -- 36 MB
4. Motorola Notification -- 31 MB
5. WhatsApp -- 19 MB
6. WeChat -- 17.5 MB <I don't know how & why this re-appears in the list despite being force stopped & no usage>
6. MotoCare -- 16 MB
While I am writing this post, there's only 286 MB of free RAM on my device. Not sure if this is good or bad, but 70% RAM usage at all times, without much load, makes me jittery.

Hi Gaurav -
Good to know that I'm not alone out there ------- Lets hear it from the experts too!
There are no performance issues as such, but still curious to know if this behavior is normal or surreal.

Some services/processes run in the background & are reqd. to do so. You may not know which app is using what service. Force stopping/killing these services may fail the app to perform as desired.
It is advised not to force stop at least core system services/processes.
