    Thank you for any feedback.
    I have 1 gmail account exchange (my main with contacts and calendar), and another gmail account (junk mail mostly) set up imap. I am noticing much faster push with the exchange account. Its always there instantly. The imap account sometimes takes several minutes to receive an email.

    I would go exchange.

    The main difference is IMAP is just for email. Exchange is for mail, contacts, and calendar (and notes for other platforms).

    So if you don't care about syncing your contacts or calendar, stick with IMAP.
