Default Need a better Email App...suggestions?

I've been an HTC guy since the first MyTouch and after going through 3(!) HTC One phones in a month, I jumped ship and went to the Note 3.

(I don't get the hype of the HTC One, it's a nice phone, but the worst battery life, bloatware and call quality ever).

Anyway...I am not a fan of the Note 3 stock email app. Any suggestions on one from the Play Store that can handle AOL and Google email, with multiple accounts...more than 3...

Thx!

I've been using Aquamail for more than a year and love it. You may need to get the paid version in order to handle more than 2 email accounts. In the past, I've used K-9 and Kaiten. But Aquamail is faster, has a better interface, provides better folder views, etc.

I think that you don't get the hype because you have a bad device.

I have an HTC One and the battery life is phenomenal. Just have a read of my posts over in the HTC battery thread for details. I'm getting better battery life out of my HTC than I am my Note 3 with the same push mails and notifications. I've been running both side by side for a few days to see.

In my experience, call quality is great, better than my Note 3 in fact, and the bloatware on the Note is on a par with pretty much every high end phone going. For instance, I don't want Evernote, Flipboard, ChatOn, Hangouts, My Magazine and many other apps on my Note 3. I live with them though by disabling all the ones I can and hiding the icons for the rest using Nova prime. On the HTC, I disliked Blinkfeed and hated the fact that in stock Sense UI I had to have it on my springboard, whether I liked it or not.

Back on topic, another vote for Aquamail here too.

People still use AOL mail? Just messing with you. I tease my sister about that all the time. Probably cause I haven't used it for maybe 10 yrs now.

Aquamail here also. One of the few apps I spent money on.

Have it linked to my cable provider email and my work Microsoft exchange email. Works great with both.
