    For a few weeks now I have been having problems with my phone. It's a lg aristo. It has been running slow, freezing up and I've noticed a flashing android symbol that keeps flashing in and out of the notification section on the left top corner. Also when this happens the location symbol will appear on the right top corner of my phone. I have no idea what is going on and was hoping someone could shed some light on this for me. Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central. If the icon is on the left side you should be able to pull down the bar and long press the icon. It should tell you what is generating it.

    I have tried that but there is no icon there. It's is just a real quick flash. It took me several minutes to figure out what it was. I just happen to catch a movement at the the top of my screen and at first thought it was just the light of shadow. But then i saw it again and i started watching that area and likevi said i had to watch it for quiteca while before i could make out what it was flashing it is so fast.

    And not all the time but some of the time the location symbol will come up on the right side but it is greyed out.

    Could it some kind of tracker?

    Don't think it's a tracker. Clear your system cache and see if that helps. Also check your battery settings and see if that shows anything using a lot of battery.

    I cleared the system cache and the battery usage shows that the screen is using 68%. It is still doing it. Its to fast to screen shot.

    Does it persist in Safe Mode? If so, you could try reflashing the stock firmware.
