    So how much of the internal memory is gmail taking after the update. While Google’s Apps are generally good, many of them just auto update by default and do not support Apps2SD hence take up large chunks of internal memory. Most Android phones in the market have limited internal memory. Therefore, Google should support moving the Apps to SD card.
