Re: January update (47.1.A.12.34) bug , gps icon always on

There is a serious problem if updating XPERIA XZ Premium with Android 8.0.0 causing GPS and Location services to be on all the time and draining battery fast.  Once you install Android 8.0.0 no longer mobile display Icons for Location Services and user is unable to switch OFF or ON as indicated in user manual. This is serious error on part of Sony indicating updating had not full factory qualification testing before release and to make situation worst it is not possible to downgrade update to original factory android version.
