As the title states, I'm no longer receiving GMail notifications on my S10. At first, I had no issues receiving notifications, but I noticed at some point last week I was no longer receiving GMail notifications (it took me a few days to realize this because I don't get that many emails haha).
After Googling around for ideas as to why this was happening, I found that it's because I have a Power Saving Mode on (medium). So, I messed around within GMail settings and within the S10 settings to basically tell the device to ignore Power Saving options when it comes to GMail. No dice. The only time I can get consistant GMail notifications is if I turn off all Power Saving options. This is frustrating because there are options available to flag certain apps to bypass this. Also, if I don't have some form of Power Saving on, battery life suffers even if I'm not continuously on my phone.
Here are all the methods I tried and had no luck with:
Went into GMail > Settings > selected my email address > Manage Labels and ensured that all labels were selected for sync
I made sure that notifications are enabled in both GMail settings and the S10 app settings
I also went into S10 settings > Apps > GMail > Mobile Data and enabled "Allow background data usage" and "Allow app while data saver is on"
Thinking that it was a GMail app thing, I also tried using the Samsung email app instead. No dice, even with GMail disabled and unsync'd.
Anyone know why Power Saver blocks GMail, even when I ask it and the device not to?

Thanks for trying to help! I figured that Samsung wouldn't have a fix, since this isn't a Samsung product issue, moreso just curious if anyone else noticed this issue or had any ideas for/success with sending a bug report to Google. :)

Hi! Title says it all. I use Android Messages on my Note 8 and have recently noticed that any time I send a photo to someone, Messages auto saves it in a folder it creates in my gallery. I don't need the photo saved.... I already have it in my gallery! Not sure if anyone else has had this happen and if so, did you find a fix? I have no idea how to report a bug go Google, unless I'm missing the option to do so within the app. Fyi, I've cleared the cache in Messages and Gallery, no luck. In Messages, I've also turned off the feature that auto downloads mms to the thread when one is received but as soon as I click on the icon to view what was sent, it throws it in that folder without my requesting it to do so. I'm tired of testing this by sending myself multiple photos, so I'm throwing this out to the Samsung Community. Thoughts? Thanks! EDIT: this only happens when a photo is sent thru the Messanges app (clicking on the + icon and picking a photo thru there). If I go to my gallery and share a photo from it to Messanges, no issues
