Yes, I still use Outlook as part of MS Office on my PC, and no, I'm not about to change. Well I could be persuaded, but that would be waaay off topic.
For a few years I've been syncing the PC Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks & notes to my Android phones using the combination of DejaOffice and CompanionLink. This solution is OKish, but adding and editing contacts is pretty cumbersome as you cannot do this directly in the phone Contacts app, similarly with Calendar. You have to switch to the Deja app, and if you say dial from the Deja app is uses the native phone app and the link between two gets pretty tedious after a while and prone to error.
Yesterday by accident I came across AkrutoSync which is a PC program that allows the sync to occur by adding a new MS Exchange Account to the phone and then sync over wifi or the web. Threw the 7 day trial on last nite and although I had a few problems with the setup (possibly down to the zillion variants of Android), the Akruto email support was superb and soon sorted the issues out. It also helps to have a basic understanding of how the accounts sync with the phone apps (my knowledge being at the bottom end of that scale).
After things were up and running, it is really nice to see the edits on the phone appearing on the PC a few minutes later. My setup is with wifi, but there is also a way to do it remotely - good for road warriors.
Has anyone used any other software that provides a good sync with phone and Outlook? I want to be able to change & enter things directly in the native phone apps, not constantly switching between native and third party apps. It must also be easy for someone who is not a GZ user to use :-) I'm not looking for cloud based systems (the MS Outlook app is in use on another system, but currently is is rubbish - no editing on the phone, no tasks or calendars. It might be OK in 5 years.)
Not particularly relevant, but I'm using the LG G4 with Android 6.0, PC is Win7.
