    Brand new Galaxy S7.

    Expected behavior: on my previous phone (an old Moto G), Gmail updated almost immediately when I received a new email.

    This does not happen on my S7.

    I can tell this because on my desktop I am looking at Gmail through Chrome and it will often take 10 minutes between the time a new email shows up there and when it shows up in the Gmail app on the S7.

    This happens both on wifi and off of wifi.

    So far I haven't noticed any other irregularities. In particular, web browsing is still quite fast even when this behavior is occurring.

    Is there a setting in Gmail somewhere that controls how often it checks for new mail? I couldn't find it.

    Thanks for the help.

    Welcome to Android Central! Any power saving modes turned on? Is Restrict Background Data turned on in Settings>Data Usage​?

    All power saving modes are off and Restrict Background Data is also off. Any other ideas?
