Sync

  • Supports push technology which delivers data to your device as new data is available.
  • There is a single setup for e-mail, calendar, and contacts.
  • The setup is easy.
  • Most devices support only one sync account.
  • Depending on your device, any push connection may use more power than fetching data at scheduled intervals. In some cases the difference in power usage may have a noticeable impact on your phone's battery life. To save battery life, turn off push and set device to fetch data every 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Beta software.

IMAP

  • Supports pull technology which fetches data at a scheduled interval set by the user.
  • One setup for e-mail and a separate setup for calendar and contacts.
  • The setup is easy.
  • Devices support multiple accounts.
  • Pull technology allows you to set the interval to fetch new data and therefore improving your phone's battery life.
