Android subsystem reports device as “low RAM”, ie. there isn’t much memory available:
This will affect some Android software adversely, since they disable memory-intensive features.
- Install Android application which uses isLowRamDevice() to determine its behavior, eg. Signal
- Run the application
Application works normally in the Android subsystem.
Application is told it is running in a “low RAM” system, and disables parts of the UI in an effort to conserve memory. For example, Signal will only send images in very low 768×432 resolution and not even display a image quality selector tool.
Could this be related to the issue with memory level reported by Mode Control Entity?
