Gmail on the Flyer
I am a Google Apps user with my own domain. The Gmail app on the Flyer is just the standard one and is not really making good use of the screen real estate.
So, I configures the HTC Mail app to connect to my account using Exchange ActiveSync and set it to push mail. I have noticed 2 annoying issues. Firstly, I often get told that there has been an authentication error with an icon in the top bar. Eventually, I can manually get it to sync with my gmail and that goes away for a while.
Secondly, the Mail app is using loads of battery. Looking in the battery stats, I noticed that it used 12% of battery and in the last 3 hours or so, it kept the phone awake for almost an hour and a half! Overall, the Flyer lost 10% of its battery in 3 hours without being touched. Not very good. I have changed push mail to sync every 10 minutes, but it is not really what I wanted.
Can anyone help here or offer any advise?
I would list my devices along with current device here, but it changes too often.
