Battery Life Tweaking ... Gain 30% battery life and still be notified of new email.
Just would like to contribute to the nerds repository of information. Now that I've had my phone running for literally days without having to charge. I just wanted to share how I managed to do it, and I still am notified when new email is available..
In case if it hasnt been mentioned before, here's how it's done
1- Turn off syncing of google mail..
2 - Create an account on IFTTT.com
3 - Create an IFTTT rule to send your phone a Text Message with the Subject of the text message as the subject of the email when new email becomes available within GMAIL.
