Pure Android, when using the default GMail App with ActiveSync integration, does not download GAL entries.
Whilst it also allows one to easily copy GAL entries to the account's 'Contacts' it allows management from the phone.
Searching contacts initiates a connection to Office 365 GAL after entering 3 or more letters. This is extremely useful and sorely missing in Android when using the Outlook app.
