I noticed that the new GMAIL app uses a lot of battery. Just checking email made battery drop from 100% to 96% in like 5 minutes.

Went back to stock Apple Mail battery use is normal. Yea it does not seem to push but at least it doesn't kill my battery.

I use the gmail app every day and I haven't noticed a reduction in battery life on the recent updates.

I gave up on the Gmail and within two months since it kind of lacked… I fetch every hour and all my devices running iOS and they still seem to get the notifications around the same time if not sooner than my androids. Go figure!
