    Me and my wife both just bought Samsung galaxy s4. When we set up our gmail accounts on the phone they both have different looks to them. Her phone shows big icons next to each email with the letter of the person sending it and mine looks more likemamtraditional gmail inbox. When I went to settings we both have different settings options. I'm new to android and a google search only gives me stupid reviews. Does anyone know why they look different and how to change hers so it looks more like a traditional email inbox?

    Sounds like your wife has the latest Gmaill update and you do not. Check for a update in the Play store.

    ^ What he said or you may have set it up through the Email app rather than the Gmail one.

    In hers (which sounds like the newest GMail app), you have to get to "General settings" from the menu and un-check "Sender image"

    I believe that you have to change to the new format on the Web version first. That is when my phone updated to the new format. Could have been a coincidence but give it a try.
