Interesting discovery : Regarding Location information shown on the pictures taken by my phone at the same address (upper floor of 671 Fennell Ave. East in Hamilton Ontario L8V1V3 Canada. Updated July 18 of 2020

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

NOT RELIABLE AT ALL.

IS IT THE SAME ISSUE WITH ALL THE PHONES, OR JUST ON MY (AXON 7 mini).

All of the following pictures were taken at the same physical address in Hamilton at my residence/building but different location information on pictures (most pictures show location of E27th while pictures were taken at Fennell Ave. East).

Three of them are wrong. Except one which show Fennell Ave. Address.

It is better to show coordinates instead of street address on pictures.

How is that possible, one picture even shows out of province address.

It is beyond accuracy issue. I find this mind boggling. If this feature was not properly tested by the manufacturer should not have been made available to the customers because it conveys unreliable and wrong information about the location of the picture where it was taken.

(wrong – beyond imagination)

(wrong street)

(wrong street)

( street name postal code correct)

Conclusion :

location shown on the pictures taken by phone can not be trusted, so I have disabled this feature of my phone, utterly non sense in Android 7.1.1, may be higher versions of Android on phones have better location estimation and better accuracy. Wrong location can result in serious consequences.
