    I'm a bit confused about what having sync on actually does. I normally have it switched off, yet I still receive WhatsApp messages, email etc.
    The times I have had it activated I've received Gmail emails, even though I rarely use the account.
    So what are the benefits of having it activated, and what are the drawbacks?

    Wonder the same thing .. as far as I can read it seems syn is indeed for things like mail / dropbox / chrome etc.

    Basically anything which syncs in the background. I do think so that there is a difference in "sync" and "push" in email .. I THINK push doesn't count as sync .. But don't know .. hope someone can answer that properly .

    You're right, push does seem to be separate as email will continue to sync without sync enabled. I can also set email to check at intervals and that doesn't require sync either. It's all a bit puzzling!
