    I've always changed my location services to battery saving mode to...well, save battery. I'm not use if this is new in nougat or what but any time something needs to use location services it asks me to enable high security and I have to click cancel to keep it on battery saving.

    So my question is if I leave it on high accuracy am I really going to see a detrimental drop in battery life or is it nominal

    Have you googled High Accuracy?
    That's a new one to me. You may be right that it's a bigger power suck than before.

    I know what high accuracy is and I enable it when I'm using Google maps for nav. I'm just wondering if leaving it on all the time will noticably impact battery.

    I always use high accuracy. I haven't seen an issue with life on my phones.

    Looks interesting.

    I'll have to try leaving location services on as well

    Looks like it doesn't have any effect on battery

    I was having battery drain but it was because stupid Snapchat had location access and polls continuously while open. Revoked the access and all is well
