Is there anything wrong with the mail app

I personally love the mail app on the iphone, the ios 5 updates made it perfect for me. Finally being able to mark as read and the editing was all i needed. Josh was talking about his emails piled up while using his iphone and i was wonder how. I never use to check my email before i got my iphone now i check my email like 5 times an hour. Or is gmail on android really that amazing that it just makes everything else seem bad?
