Nexus 10 memory leak
« on: March 12, 2013, 11:16:22 PM »
I got the new Nexus 10.  Haven't installed many apps.  I noticed that if I watch youtube for over an hour, youtube crashes back to main menu.  Then I noticed that the entire tablet turned extremely sluggish.  I went to Apps in Settings and everything wast in the process of Restarting!  Also, almost the entire RAM is used leaving between 40 - 90 MB's of Ram free!

I tried to take a screen shot of the situation.  But apparently there's not enough memory to save the screen shot!

So I had to take a pic of the tablet with my cellphone.

What's going on?

Details:
Brand new (less than a few weeks old)
Android 4.2.2
Non-rooted
Nothing running in "SHOW CACHED PROCESSES"
The 8 apps running continually "Restarting"
I force close the apps.  But even with only Settings and 2 system apps in the "Restarting" state, the memory is still 1.2Gb used.

this may seem obvious, but...

Good one InkPot.

Seriously, if a restart does not help, I would suggest a factory reset.

Restart is not the fix.  I don't want to have to restart it every hour or so of using the device.

My suggestion would be a factory reset and see if the issue continues before addadding any apps. Then add the apps back and see if it returns.

Factory reset don't seem to fix the problem.  Even with no App installed, the free memory drops down after an hour or so of viewing Youtube.

I've heard other people have the same problem but nobody every found a solution to this.  Really, Google!  I expect better.

I was a very early adopter and feel like I got stung with a Toshiba Thrive. I am in the market for a replacement. The Nexus 10 looks like the best tab out there. But I am concerned with the reports of memory leaks, randoms restarts and what appears to be a slow respose from Google and Samsung to address the issues. Can anyone shed light on this and if possible separtate the  facts from pilot error? I realize there will be problems with some devices but this memory leak, surfaceflinger problem has me stopped in my tracks for now. Thanks for any advice.

4.2.2 fixed the random restarts, as for memory a leak, I have seen nothing on my 10. I do reboot it occasionally, always have with all my electronic devices, just makes sense to go fresh every now and again after a night of use, nothing lost as the Tablet is being put away for a charge anyway... Mine is rooted, so that may be a difference anyway.
