    Hello guys,

    From 3 weeks I had the problem that some part of my google account doesn't sync (Contacts, Gmail and some others). After 3 weeks of headbanging, deleting cache, data, backup, factory reset and everything else, this morning i figure it out that Power saving mode (PSM) blocks the sync (I figure it out randomly.... thanks God....). That problem appeared when I upgraded to Android 6 (it started then) and 6.0.1 (I'm still having this problem). I'm using Samsung Galaxy S6 for 1 year. Before the update (on Android 5.x.x) I've used PSM constantly and never stopped it. Even though the sync process was stable and everything was fine, I was receiving messages, notifications and everything. So now I should turn off my PSM so I can get my email notifications on time....

    Is there any chance that PSM and google sync works together? It's pretty dump for me.... honestly. Or if it's not possible, I will suggest to Google to make PSM and some important apps (like Gmail, Email and others that people use all the time) to make them to work together.

    Thank you for your time!

    Best Regards!

    Well, the main reason users will use PSM is to save battery power. And sync drains battery. 6.0.1 blocked sync when PSM is on while 5.0 have option to disable sync or not. I guess your only choice is to turn off PSM. And, why buy expensive phones just to limit its performance with PSM.

    Try not to always enable PSM. I used to enable PSM at my S3 and S5 all the time. But i tried turning off PSM to see any diffence. And the diffrence is not that huge.

    I had to factory reset my phone (HTC One M9), and now I have doubt that the reason why contacts sync was stopped ... most likely it was because of the Power Saver mode.

    This is completely not logical... it should give at least a warning that contact sync will stop.

    More details ...

    Surely it's unreasonable to expect all a phone's functions to work in a power-saving mode? Contact syncing is unlikely to be needed frequently.


    Extreme power-saving is even more limiting, but surely that's what you'd expect.
