Default Gmail wont stop syncing

A few weeks ago I noticed my battery wouldn't last more than 6 hours. After a lot of troubleshooting, I found that gmail was the cause because it wouldn't stop syncing. Confirmed of course after deleting gmail for a couple of days.

But I really would like to keep the account on my phone. I set up that account again and for a few days it seemed fine, but my phone is constantly warm to the touch again and the battery just died... this time it hadn't even been 6 hours.

Has anyone else experienced this recently?

I'm on a lumia 1020 with black update.

What are your sync settings for your Gmail account? Since WP8, we couldn't set Gmail to sync "As Items Arrive", or push status. Could set as often as 15 minute only. Are there large files and/or attachments coming through?

I know, and I have it set to 15 minutes. I get a few photos every now and then but nothing out of the ordinary that should cause this. And as far as volume goes.... maybe 50 emails a day including the typical spam/promos that don't get filtered properly.

That's strange, on my ATIV S i don't occur that kind of problem, but i am not having my data turned on all the time. I turn it on just when i need to check something on internet or where there is no wi-fi spot around. And in email and accounts for Gmail i have the options "As They Arrived" to "Manualy", and ofcorse i chose "Manualy", I think we have to address this issue at Microsoft and Gmail together.

Push it to 30min for a day or two. See if that helps.

Didnt' make any changes. But it stopped doing it. So not gonnna keep digging, it was a hassle in the first place trying to figure out the cause over a couple of weeks. All I can say was deleting the account and adding it helped the first time. the 2nd time not sure. Oh well.
