    Got an Huawei android phone.
    Sometimes I don't get any notification when receiving an email, sometimes it's delayed by 3 minutes, why is this ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using the Gmail app, or the stock Email app with your Gmail account added to it?

    Any power-saving modes turned on? Or is Restrict Background Data turned on for the Gmail app in the system settings?

    That setting's location can vary depending on the phone. If the system settings have a search option, do a search for "background."

    Which Huawei phone do you have?

    Also, did you look for a battery optimization menu? If so, make sure Gmail isn't "Optimized."

    Hmm, sorry -- this is always a bit tough if I don't have the phone in my hand to fiddle around with. Does the problem persist in Safe Mode? https://www.getdroidtips.com/boot-huawei-y7-into-mode/

    There is an app called Push Notification Fixer, is it safe to install and try ?

    Seems like it's worth trying. The reviews that I looked at didn't mention any intrusive ads, and the app doesn't ask for any unnecessary permissions.

    Did some reading and people are saying recently the app doesn't help. Wouldn't want to risk it because you have to grant it full permission over the phone and could be malicious, not worth it just so i get notifications faster.
    I find usually the light flashes on the corner of my phone to indicate a notificatin however the sound and popup come minutes after. There are others with this problem on here and over reddit.
