Gmail mail App Vs HTC Mail Exchange Sync
I have recently moved over to HTC - Andriod platform from the Palm Pre
The pre had a great IMAP IDLE client which provided fast "push-like" email and auto sync of ALL my gmail folders.
I am trying to achieve the same on my Wildfire - I understand that there is the native HTC Maill App in which i can use Exchange Sync and set to "as mail arrives" or use the GMAIL App.
My questions are - which of the two options provide best battery life, which "pushes" mail fastest.
I also use my google account for calender and contacts. Is it a requirement i use GMAIL APP to keep these features?
On Palm Pre you could select which parts such as contacts, tasks, calendar you wanted from each different mail account...
