    I am having to manually sync to get my emails. I read some other phones were affected but I cannot seem to find anything that says this is an issue with the S7 Edge...

    Which app are you using? I am using both the stock Samsung and Gmail apps and both sync fine. For the Samsung app, you can set the poll interval

    I am using the Gmail app. To test it now again, I sent an email to myself from another email accout to my Gmail address and it arrived right away. However, my Edge still shows nothing and it has been 10 minutes...

    I am having this problem as well. I may have to switch to a different email client if this continues. I use Gmail for business. And it's bad business to leave my clients hanging for hours on end.

    Yeah, I don't think it is necessarily the phone. It was happening quite frequently on my Nexus 5x until I swapped it for the Edge.

    i think this is why it's been taking google so long to fix it, it's not a consistent bug (i personally have no gmail issues, but my friend does, and he has had them on a G4, a V10, and now his S7E) and somewhat hard to consistently replicate what triggers it for some people.

    Just started having this issue, I was thinking, man I have not received any email lately from Gmail, did a manual pull to refresh them boom, 8-10 emails come down.

    Not good. Didn't had this issue on last phone IP6S+ but do now.

    Not sure if it's edge related but I am now also getting 25+ text messages a day from AT&T but that's a whole other issue.

    The only time I have a similar issue is when I check my Gmail first thing in the morning, and for whatever reason the last mails pushed came in around 3 a.m., so I have to manually refresh to get the remainder. Push works fine after that. It was the same on my previous phone, so it doesn't appear to be S7/S7E-specific.

    I set up gmail on my samsung stock email app now it always comes through immediately. It's something to do with the gmail app. If it is a server side issue as many have said why do I get gmail immediately pushed through samsung app?

    it seems to be an issue with the way the app interfaces with their servers. so it's an app/server issue, most of the time for users who are having the issue, changing to a different app usually works.

    Yep. I don't get any notifications for a lot of emails. I'm using Inbox with push turned on.

    I'm having the same issue with not receiving Gmail notifications. Sometimes it works, but often it doesn't, especially first thing in the morning. I didn't have this issue on my S6 Edge.

    My both S7 Edge have the same syncing issues with Gmail, contacts, calendar, Facebook and other.... So I turned OFF the optimize battery usage individually. Those apps are syncing fine now.

    I have been having a problem with Gmail as well as contacts syncing between different phones using the same Gmail account. Usually if I add a contact on one phone, it will sync to the other three with no problems. That hasn't been working in over a month.

    Do you mean turning off the switch at the top of the app optimization screen?
