Re: Since last update

Hello everybody;

 

This is a known issue and as already informed by the Xperia Support Team it will be solved in a future update. However I think it is only a visual problem don´t affecting the battery usage.

Hi Emir,

 

Please note I have updated to the most recent update just released 47.1.A.12.75 and the problem is still there.  It went away after update and restart but came back a few hours later....

Translation via Google Translate:

I closed all the applications one at a time and in the bar the grenelle turned off the GPS icon and it still burned

 

Я все приложения закрыл по одному и в баре гарел значек GPS отключал и все равно он горел

Is the gps actually working and tracking my phone when I don't want it to? This is a serious issue Sony. You could face legal problems for breach of privacy. Get the gps thing fixed please .

Hello @Dracuvio;

 

If you disconnect the GPS in the settings the icon remains in the status bar but it is not actually working, it is just a visual thing.

But it is understandable, but I would like for such a price something more than just a badge burns, it should be almost perfect and not just a phone, why should we suffer, I personally get pissed at this badge when he constantly speaks
