Gmail Stops Syncing on Smart Devices
Even though the user has turned on the auto-sync function in the Gmail settings, it will just turn itself off for no apparent reason. There actually can be several reasons this is happening, such as the use of Snapdragon or other battery savers. But the most common cause is having the device set to "Always" enable power saving mode. So, if you go to your Power Saving Mode in Settings, and select "Auto-Enable" instead of "Always," the power saving mode will not kick in until the battery gets down to 20% and, if power saving was the culprit, sync will not turn-off unless that 20% threshold is met, in which event you can manually turn sync back on.
