    The default download location (not just in Android phones, Windows does it too) isn't the location you tell the downloading app or program to download to, it's a default download location - then the file gets moved to where you tell it to download. (Try it on Windows with a 2GB file and you'll see the "moving" happening.)

    And the system reserves a certain amount for itself - on most phones that's around 300-400MB.

    So no, you can't download a 35MB file to a phone with only 300MB free - you probably can't download anything at all.
