Z10 Users Memory Leaks?
Hello all of you lucky ones who are owners of BB Z10's. In the states here so have to wait it out like many others. Just thought I would ask a question that I have not seen posted anywhere yet. Is there a way on the Z10 that you are able to check for any kind of memory leak (s)? If there is a way, is anyone finding anything of any significance out? I know we were told memory leaks would be something of the past, but I just wanted to see if anyone has noticed anything, or can report any kind of findings, if they have seen something

there is a way
you pull up your system settings
go to About
pull the drop menu to hardware and it'll show you your battery percentage and above it yout total memory and memory usage
i haven't noticed any memory leaks, but it would be nice to have a memory cleaner feature like BBOS 7.1

since apps are written in C++, there are always changes that developers may allocate memory and forget to deallocate it. That would cause memory leaks... but since the OS tracks everything the app does, in theory, if you close down an app, it should free all the memory. BUT - the hub and stuff are still apps, and they never close, so in theory if the RIM folks forgot to dealloacate memory, they could cause some leaks.

I'm finding I'm having a little issue with "possible" memory leaks. When I reboot my Z10, I start out with about 1.3 GB of free memory. After several hours of use, I'm down to between 800-900 MB free memory. I make sure I've closed down all apps - I don't have any active frames open. Does anyone have any suggestions/possible causes?

I'm happy to report that I have not noticed a single memory leak at all I haven't shut down the phone once since I got it more than 48 hours ago either. That is really impressive as I even had memory leaks on the playbook. None here though

The RAM usage seems to fluctuate in my experience, even without any Active Frames running. Might have to do with things syncing in the background? Unless you feel a genuine decrease in performance, I wouldn't worry too much about it. So far the phone has consistently been silky smooth for me.Proud owner of black Z10 (10.1.0.2354) on Telus, PlayBook 32GB (18.104.22.1686), and 100 shares of BBRY!

Turn on your phone and then go straight to the HUB. You'll notice that you will get a message about it rebuilding itself. That is probably where most of the memory is being used.
At least that is the way it is for me. I have 9 accounts attached to my hub.

Thank you for all the replies. I only noticed a performance hit once after 24 hrs of use. I went into Blackberry World and I was getting the spinning circle quite a bit. I did reboot that time, but other than that, the phone has been awesome. I agree, it is VERY smooth and FAST. I love it!

Ok. I just wanted that to be confirmed. This for sure will be my next device, but I hope down the road I am not hearing anything like people doing as many battery pulls in a day as they are doing swipes, or if there are memory leaks like the current line up of BB phones.. I would hope those issues would be all but gone. Hate to sound negative or paranoid here, but anytime I lock myself into a two year contract, I want to make sure this phone does not hinder me in usage as some of my previous BB's did. Good to know everyone is agreeing on these things. Sounds like they did straighten things out and get issues resolved

Oh, and I have 50 apps/games installed, just in case you wanted to know. So I definitely have been using it heavily...

The "memory cleaner" was just a security function that cleared potentially sensitive data from the device in case some sneaky hacker got hold of it and tried to extract sensitive information.
I believe it cleared some browser caches, passwords, encryption keys - stuff like that.
