I have just factory reset my phone. To get the location, there are 3 options: High accuracy, Battery saving, GPS only. For any app that would use/show my location, I get no location if using GPS only, even if I wait for several minutes with the phone in the backyard. I do not recall checking this since a long time ago, but with my old phones (ca. 2010), which I think used pure GPS with no assistance, location worked wel..

Is this behaviour expected?

Can GPS location be underperforming for some reason?

  • In a different context, this app was recommended to help get the initial fix of satellites. See if that helps you. I haven't needed to try that
