    Despite the fact that BB10 syncs ok with Google accounts ( Contacts, Calendar, Gmail..etc ) it still continues to show flaws, like meaningful lags, lost of contacts or their info. I decided to move all this to Outlook, which syncs amazingly fast and flawless. I think in the last time, Google is coming to work flawlessly with Android alone, so after many years of working with Gmail, I prefer to go Outlook. Are platforms taking sides already?

    I've never used any GMail services, yet I had virtually no problems with outlook.com. Setup on all my BB10 devices was flawless, the only issue I encountered once were duplicate calendar entries. Deleting and re-adding the account on the phone solved this.
    Only as of late, when switching to 10.3.1 due to the Classic, I got quite some lag after adding a new calendar appointment. That didn't happen on neither my Q10 running 10.2.2 or Passport running 10.3.0 - so I guess this might be a BlackBerry related issue.

    A month ago I switched to a rather small, paid mail provider, where I also setup CardDAV for conacts and CalDAV for calendars. It works very well, the mentioned lag for the calendar appointments is gone too.

    I don't think Blackberry plays nice with anything other than Outlook/Exchange. What I mean is full functionality for example we use Google Apps at work and I can't get my shared departmental calendar on my Blackberry only my individual account calendar.

    I use iCloud for personal stuff my contact groups don't sync and none of the contact assigned pictures appear. Syncing data such as contact info and calendars is done on a time interval rather than a "push". Again the only exception is if you're using Exchange ActiveSync.

    Gmail is pop. Outlook is activesync.

    Google used to give activesync free but I think now it's a paid service.

    Gmail contacts can be synced using carddav and you can setup Gmail email with IMAP. FYI

    I have a paid Google account for business and didn't use the default bb's Gmail setup for better performance.

    My personal Outlook account works flawlessly with activesync.
