    I don't have to long press at all. I actually just tap the icon on the left side of the emails that I want to delete and then after selecting the ones I want, I hit the menu button and select delete.

    I hate the latest update forced onto my phone by Google. I can revert back to the prior version, but after a few hours it automatically updates to the newest version that I just removed. How do I turn off this auto-update mode on Gmail?? I have a Galaxy S4.
    Interesting thread...

    As many have noted, pretty much all the same functionality is still there, though in some cases it's just a matter of choosing a correct setting or learning a new method to achieve it. Personally, I'd recommend getting accustomed to the new version rather than try to cling to an out-dated version and avoiding updates. Eventually you've have no choice but to change, so why not do it now?

    Personally, I don't like the contact pictures (I may like them better if they actually showed me contact pic rather generic letters...but still probably wouldn't turn them on), and I was able easily add the delete button back to the top bar. Took me all of a day or two to get used to the new layout.

    Yes, that works if you keep those big boxes with letters. I don't want those things on mine so I disabled them. Now I have to long press or I have it setup to swipe to delete.

    And BTW, you get a lot of junk email...

    1. You can disable automatic updates in the Play Store if you want to

    2. You can also disable those icons via Gmail settings.

    We can explain all kinds of different alternate ways of doing this... and yet, someone will still say they don't like it.
    And most will be the same people that will complain if they did not change anything and say how old this or that app is.

    Open Gmail app > Menu > Settings > General settings > Sender image is right there.
