Default Set Gmail to sync manually?

How can I set so Gmail is set to sync manually? Now whenever I get a mail it notifies me instantly. I've checked every setting but can't find the sync option.

disable it in google sync first. now if you want to check for new mail, open gmail, then swipe down on the screen. or, press the menu(top right, 3 dots), then press refresh

Ah thanks guys, I must have missed that one lol. Will be interesting to see how much of a difference this will make to the battery as I get a lot of emails but usually just check my mail like 5 times a day or so.

I wouldn't expect anything drastic

You're turning on the screen to check for email, isn't that potentially worse for battery life?

Uhm, I don't think so? Before Gmail was fetching all the time which meant the process was active at all times, now it's terminated so I would assume battery life will improve.

The process just listens, it doesn't actively seek out anything. The process is still "active" even if you manually sync. With a scheduled refresh you will be "hand shaking" every time so this obviously uses more power than push. If you're only manually syncing 5 times a day, this can't be on that level so you may see a small increase (well you probably wont "see" or "notice" the difference) in battery life.

You'd have to have the screen on to read them anyway but it would be on longer with a manual sync as with push the e-mails would be already there and pull - you'd have the screen on whilst waiting for them to come in.

I don't think you will see any noticeable difference, but will be interesting to see your results...
