I need to know the memory size of my phone.I used below
Runtime.getRuntime().totalMemory()/1024*1024
But it gives me 5 as result.It can't be.because my phone mmemory is larger than 5 MB.

I'm not aware of an API call for that. The info contained in /proc/cpuinfo and /proc/meminfo (which you can read via "cat" executed through Runtime.exec) probably has everything you need.

actually i need to get memory details like totsl memory,remaining memory ... in MB or GB.
I need to show them in my app.So its better to get them as a String or text value.s there a way to do this ?
i mean calling a method .... like that ?

Again: if you're after an existing API call, then I don't think there is one.

But with the information I gave you it's easy to write a method that extracts the information you're after. Have you looked at the contents of those files yet? If not, then that should be your next step.
