    Verizon Samsung S7 Edge running G935VVRUACSF2 software. Had the phone since the whole Note 7 fiasco and really hasn't been a problem until recently. About a month ago the phone quit receiving Gmail push notifications from ONE of my Gmail accounts. Ended up deleting the account on the phone and reinstalling it and things seemed to be working fine. Now, it's doing something similar. I no longer see new email notifications on the phone when I know I have new emails that I can see on my desktop. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's some bs power management garbage Samsung/Verizon has built into recent OS versions because other background applications seem to be affected as well. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, anything I can do about it...besides deleting and reinstalling email accounts?

    You can try to take the email out of app optimizing for battery.
