    has anyone used frequent locations long enough to tell if it has an impact on battery life?

    I turn on location for almost all apps. Of course it'll affect the battery but I've had fantastic battery life I don't even bother turning it off to see the difference

    I do as well. Frequent locations is a system app that tracks your location throughout the day to give you more relavent alerts and information

    I turned them off from day one. Almost all of them. Don't need alerts and location based ads. Just my opinion.

    Interesting take.

    But what about battery effects?

    I am getting 2 full days out of a charge. 8-9 hours of usage with 50+ standby.

    Here is a novel idea. See what your battery life is like with it on. Then turn it off and see if you notice a difference. That way you will know for sure if and how it affects your phone, in your location. Instead of relying on someone else's opinion. Just a suggestion, not trying to be a wise ass.

    Please direct that to the OP.

    I'm not asking the question. My locations, notifications, etc are all on all the time.

    I merely told that guy to respond regarding the battery life since that's what OP wanted to know.
