I have run out of space in my smartphone (got the message
Storage space running out: Some system functions may not work). I know this is defined as a threshold of 10% of internal disk space (8 GB). So, I have ~ 800 MB of free space. I can watch YouTube videos in YouTube app (I'm watching Persepolis right now, which has more than one and a half hour). But GMail says it just "Couldn't sync", so I cannot see nor send any new emails.
If there's an emergency and I need to communicate by email, I just cannot, because Google has no option besides "sync" the GMail app. It could obviously show new emails as plain text, without saving anything to disk.
Is there any reasoning behind this absurd (emails are much smaller than a 1:35h video), or is it just another planned obsolescence behavior?
