Hi Everyone,

You might experience that GPS icon is visible in the status bar although the location setting is off. This is known and will be corrected in a future software release.

However, please note that Software updates are released at different times depending on the operator, market, region or country. Therefore, we cannot give you an exact date for when a specific update will be available for your device. In addition, network operators and specific markets may choose not to use the updates for specific models.

Ok, so its not some apk problem but problem of new update. I think that GPS is not really in use, because battery is not draining faster. But it **bleep**...

sketch-1516355494215.pngAs u can see, the location is turned off.

  I think it's a bug.as i have seen thos after the recent update in January. Please solve this issue. Though the problem temporarily vanishes after a restart but again problem starts after some times
