freitasm: I think it is aa combination of crappy Android plus crappy apps. Not specific to Nokia. Huawei is not great either.
Well you'd expect Google to not be making crappy apps, and you'd also expect Google to be able to make their own mail app work with their own OS properly.
But I'm confused as to what is causing what here. I already had another thread where I was ranting about the aggressive dozing of mail apps and idiotic GCM prioritization choices, and I thought that the mail apps were behaving "normally"/"as intended", but since then I've had Pixel owners tell me that they get Gmail notifications no matter how long their phones have been idle. Since the Nokia had/has notification issues with other apps, I started to think it was Nokia's fault.
