    Just changed my mail from IMAP to an Exchange server and was wondering if I was going to see better or worse battery life - anyone got any idea / experience?

    You'll have less battery life, but not by much. IMAP/POP3 checks with the server every 15/30/60 minutes. Push is always on pretty much.


    For productivity it's worth it though.

    For me, fetching every 30 minutes has proven the best compromise between productivity and battery life.
