Of course, Gmail has to be the first client we take a look at. It is installed by default on almost all Android phones and the vast majority of users end up using.
Gmail has hands down the best support for Gmail features since the app itself is made by Google. Every feature is fully supported and new features are implemented very early. It also offers fast, advanced search that becomes increasingly more important as your inbox get larger and larger.

Mailbox centers around simple to use ways of dealing with incoming emails so that you can better organize when you actually have time to deal with them and they do not get buried in your inbox.
A simple short swipe to the right puts a message into an archive, a long swipe tot the right deletes a message, and you can even snooze your email and manually enter the date when they return to your inbox.
Its design is very pleasant on the eyes and we encountered no major problem during our testing.
