    This phone gets a huge quadrant for a single core with only 512mb ram. I am beginning to think it actually has more than that. Also are apps like elixir displaying it correctly? Some people state that it has 768. Since the manufacturer or vzw have no info on the ram for the revolution, I was wondering anyone had a solid answer?

    I can see that nobody is in this forum. Hopefully that changes.

    I just called LG support. They told me it was only 512mb. Idk where this 768 figure is coming from

    I think you are correct, I just looked at Mini Info.

    I just find it wierd that lg doesnt list the ram specs anywhere. It still looks like a decent phone though.

    The Charge is stated to have 512mb RAM as well but if you look at the RAM status on the device it only shows 328mb.

    Wouldn't surprise me to see that with the Revolution as well.

    I was doing some searching for the VZW data given to me at the store on the LG Revolution, the VZW website says 768MB... For what it is worth...

    Hmmm. Thats wierd. Maybe it was suppose to have 768 but now has 512. Thats false advertising on vzws part.

    According to my 1click cache cleaner app I have 2GB of internal storage on my LG Rev. It's showing between 1 and 2 GB but that is with the apps I have installed and the bloatware already on the phone. Still better than 256mb that was on my OG Droid.

    Internal storage would be read only memory right? I am talking about access memory for running processes. But when it runs out of available ram it may draw from rom so maybe that is a good sign. It would be laggy pulling from rom though.

    I emailed Droid Life and LG again. They both told me it was 512 ram. But the processor has to be a newer snapdragon or something because it is pulling the same quadrants as Thunderbolt but Revo has less ram. Idk.

    I am thoroughly baffled... The Owners Guide says 102MB internal memory, also says internal storage says 1.32GB, I had the VZW guy show me his mobile kiosk of sacred Verizon propriety data before I traded the Charge in for the Revo... The 768MB is what sold me the phone... My Mini Info says 368MB, and the phone is blazing fast... I wonder if this thing has 768MB/512MB/1024MB????

    102mb internal memory (rom?) cannot be correct, that must be a missprint? I wonder why this phone is so fast and why vzw is telling people 768. Hopefully DL or engadget does a review on this or something. I am going to do some more research on this.

    My SystemPanel App also shows about 350 MB memory and 12 GB on the SD card. It also cites System Storage 1 GB, Application Storage 1.5 GB and Cache 193 MB. The SuperBox app shows 1.5 GB "Phone" memory.
