Good lord, how in the world do you guys get...

... so many games on board?

Looking at some of the threads, it looks like most users have 10 or more wallpapers, ringtones, games, photos, etc. Not to mention games!

The games I've seen to date seem to take up a fair amount of precious RAM (I'm starting to sound like Gollum when it comes to RAM on my 7650... my precious...RAM).

How in the world do you keep that much stuff on your 7650? I've tried installing some nice games but found less than 400K remaining on my unit... a discomforting thought considering that 7650s running firmware 3.16 have been known to not be able to boot up with less than 500K of RAM.

So, what's the secret guys? SpaceDoubler? Even that can't compress games by much!

It may seem that there are too much for so little. It all depends on what you want to do with your own precious 7650.

Some people do not install games at all. Some people do not even know that they could add apps to their phone, using it for MMS only.

I only install applications that I need. Remember, you have to buy these new add on apps. Most of the apps are free trial but if you buy each of those apps, your gonna have to spend a lot, not to mention, cost of GPRS, MMS, etc.

So, bottom line is, decide what you want...and just do it.

Get SpaceDoubler, it will surely help.

LOl....

Well.. They dont have all those on atonce. Its just a bit of jugglery with applications on phone. And a flair for (Frequent) customization (Thanks to BT and IR) . Whether it is trying out new things, Aesthetics, showoff...is a different issue though


PS: Oh..And also sDoubler helps to have a couple more on

Well Space Doubler is a really good thing! Helps alot. Although: Some apps are two in one, or even three in one, for instance you want a screen shot taker, and a gif viewer, and a file browser. You can get an app for each (and spend alot of memory) or you can get one app that does it all! SeleQ for instance

Re: Good lord, how in the world do you guys get...

Hahaha i always sounded like Mr. Gollum... well how i manage my precious is that I uninstall those appl that i hardly use and backup on my PC via BT.

If i need to use the appl, i will install then uninstall later when i no more need that. Use it as a best practises.

I have not look into SpaceDoubler yet. Is that really solve it?

So lets add some up:
FExplorer 21kB
ScreenTaker 16kB
AniWiever 10kB
Forward 11kB
----------------
adds up to 58kB
And all without sDoubler or any other compressor.
So how is that bigger than SeleQ with 180kB ??
Sorry for that, had to say it

try java...

Native apps and games like Doom do chew up all your memory, but you can fit a lot of Java Midlets into that space- I think Repton is taking up a mammoth 50k on my phone at the moment, though if I can't get past Tuatara any time soon I may delete it out of spite! :robot:
