Android 5.0.2 Location issues on HTC one m8


Recommended Posts

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.
