The main concept is very shortly described and the inner turmoil of the main character is the forefront of the story. Still I feel the naturals are the true antagonists.

This, right here would have been a better story than what was delivered. I would love to know more about the creation of the Syndos, and the war between them and the Naturals.

The Syndos because they are trying to destroy the naturals.

According to me the Syndos are the antagonist of the book and they prove it as the story moves on

Since the Syndos seem to be on a destructive mode all the time and harming the naturals, I'd say my vote goes to them.

With all the information given in the novel I can't really decide. If the author had written as much about the two groups as he did with the explicit scenes, I might've had a better understanding of the antagonists.

There isn't actually any antagonist in the story. No one impedes Jennifer's journey, no one who's actually in the story does anything to change anything. The syndos, I suppose, in the first chapter are antagonistic, but after that, she doesn't actually have any struggles or anything.
