Just upgraded to Androind 5.0.2 on HTC one m8. AT&T. And am having issues with location mode. If I go to settings->location->mode - and change it to "battery saving" it automatically keeps flipping to "high accuracy" or "device only". When this happens the "GPS" signal is always flashing. I have read on some forum that "Google play services" has modified some APIs in Android 5.0+ which allows the applications to alter the location mode even when the phone is not awake. This is a huge drain on the battery - as I see that the battery drains off with the GPS activity. Is anyone else observing this ? (I already did factory reset after upgrading to android 5.0). What can be done to overcome this ? All help appreciated.
