When my phone hits 15% battery life

Noticed this yesterday, and then again today....

When my phone hits 15% battery and it notifies me that my battery is low, it automatically switches on my GPS, Bluetooth, wifi, etc.

Why would it do this if switching them on does nothing but reduce battery life? Is there a way to keep them off when I hit 15%, or do I have to manually shut them off?

I don't have the phone but it sounds like something to do with it going into power saving mode. Look into the settings.

Nope.... No options in power saving mode. Just the option to turn it on and off.

I think this happens as a security protocol. It most likely is getting a general location before the battery dies completely.
