According to this article, http://www.wpcentral.com/google-drop...windows-phone:
The 'email only' option uses IMAP, not POP as previously thought while the 'email, contacts and calendar' function is EAS supported.
If the latter is EAS supported, why doesn't it sync Gmail Tasks, something that is synced when you set it up using the "Advanced Setup" option and select EAS?
Also, battery-wise which method is better - IMAP (fetch every, say, 15 min) or push EAS (sync as items arrive)? It would seem the latter is better since the email server pushes mail to the client (phone) whenever there is mail rather than the phone polling every so often like in the former case. However, many websites seem to suggest push configuration drains the battery faster. Confused.
