    Does it have a negative impact upon device performance?

    Reboot mean restart no restart has no negative impacts . Restart of a system is analogous to your sleeping schedule .

    Do you know any ram booster app...

    1) it has to be a BlackBerry native app...

    I don't want to download any apk which will work on BlackBerry system...

    Well BB10 is suppose to release memory when needed for something, not sure how well it works though. Does your phone slow down?

    No slow down..
    But when I attached this picture at that time there are 3 active frames..

    Now you can think about the fact that if I run 8 active frame what will be happens to my phone ram.

    Don't know what you're complaining about - on my z10 the phone app is currently using 111mb.

    The problem with BlackBerry providing diagnostic tools like Device Monitor is that people start obsessing over them. Every little thing that someone doesn't understand becomes an issue.
    At the end of the day, if your phone is working without any adverse effects then there is no problem. Let the OS do its job.

    And forget about RAM optimising apps. Firstly, they will not have permission to access the lower layers of the OS where a a difference could be made. Secondly, managing memory is always a finely balanced compromise, optimising in one area will just mean compromising somewhere else. Thirdly, I think I would rather trust BlackBerry to tune their OS to work on their hardware rather than Joe Random app developer. And finally, you've paid for the RAM, why not use it? The ideal situation would be for all the RAM to be utilised all the time, but the OS will probably not be able to achieve that. And things like caching can improve the responsiveness of your device.

    As far as I know, Z3 can only run a maximum of 4 active frames - the number being limited at OS level in order to cope with the 1.5 GB of RAM Z3 has (the other BB10 devices can run 8, because they have 2 GB of RAM).

    I installed it but the fact is that it won't work.. before start cleaner just see the free ram through device monitor and after that start
    The cleaner..
    I saw that cleaner gave me wrong information


    Like suppose your free ram is 400 mb but before run the cleaner app, cleaner will show you free ram is 299 mb.. after cleaning cleaner will show you 400 mb.. which you already have seen before run the cleaner app in device monitor..

    Simply put, unused memory is wasted memory. If you are not noticing any performance issues with your device then there is nothing to be concerned about, apps will utilize memory when need be and the operating system will release that memory for other apps if required.

    Yes there are issues. Little lag when I open music app actually loading play list,scrolling up and down in BlackBerry hub. But I can neglect these small issues but I can't ignore it...
