    A screen appears with some "Outlook.com" settings" options.

    We're happy with "Smart Sync" because it says, "Adjust sync frequency based on usage (saves battery)".
    It also allows our HTC One M8 to feel and learn what we're doing, what our behavior is, and then make the best choice for us. We can choose any one of the options by pressing down on the appropriate circle on the right side of the screen. We can only choose one.
