I have configured 2 company emails using activesync on Exchange and have kept the refresh interval at 1 hour with 3 days of sync for both the emails. What bothers me is that when I check the battery usage the Exchange services takes up more than 50% of battery every time. If this can be reduced, I am sure that the battery would rock.
I have attached 4 screenshots with the battery usage config, details on exchange service and my sync settings on both the emails.
Can somebody let me know if anything can be done to make this better, or should I just stay with it.
I sync with my works exchange and have never had these issues (been on 3 different roms, currently on 122), I have it set to push, days to sync = all, sync email and calendar but not contacts. I only sync with one account though, maybe try removing one account and seeing if that helps, and then re-add and remove the other?
One issue I did have with the stock version was the lack of ability not to set a quiet time, ie weekends and at night, tried a few other apps but didn't like them as much. I just use the profiles at night to turn auto sync off, and at the weekend I just ignore the emails
I get about 2 days out my battery from full charge. I also have it syncing with hotmail, use bluetooth in the car for 2 hours a day, browsing the web etc. So i'd say i'm a mid level battery user.
The latest version of the email/exchange apps you get with the nexus 5 have been released, maybe try them? I installed them on my P6 fine, here they are here...
