    I prefer the Gmail app, and I use it for all my accounts. Gmail, My ISP email, etc.

    I prefer the stock email app by far because the Gmail app has ads..

    Stock mail app always seems to refresh whenever I open it. I use TypeMail instead.

    What Gmail app are you using? The official Gmail app has no ads.

    Stock works fine for me - no compelling reason to use a different app.

    Stock email app for me, Gmail app doesn't do Active Sync which I need for work.

    This may be a dumb question, but with stock email can you have both a Gmail and yahoo account on it at the same time?

    I use the Gmail app, and have never seen an ad using it. The only issue I have with the Gmail app is that you have to use conversation view, which isn't always easiest when dealing with work emails. I also wish there were a couple more options as far as swiping goes, but that's just me being picky. I've tried the rest and always come back to Gmail.

    I have also never seen an ad on my gmail app ever. Wonder if LG somehow hijacked the gmail app and added some bloatware.

    Samsung must do it too because I've seen ads in the Gmail app ...

    I use both apps tied to one another for both work and personal. I use the stock app more as its not in conversation mode and easier to reply and send emails. The Gmail is more for archiving and saving emails placed into corresponding folders.

    Gmail all day long, why wouldn't you?

    Only two reason why I don't use the Gmail app for work email.

    Inability to disable conversation view. I like conversation view for personal email, but imo not the best solution for work.
    Inability to use html email signature.
    No rich text editor.

    So I guess three reasons. All deal breakers when it comes to work email. If these were implemented into the Gmail app, I believe it's all I would use.

    The secret is you must have a "promotions" tab. If so you will see ads.

    Stock gmail app does not show unsaved contacts while typing them.
    For example i forgot the mail id of a guy i contacted earlier for repairing my laptop, when i typed 'sam' gmail app showed up all contacts with sam in it and showed up sam.pcfix..... aswell. This is the most helpful feature of gmail app which beats any other app
