Default Grrenify play store

Play services are a problem with regard to waeklocks, any issue with greenifying it?

No, but I would just turn off google now and change the location mode to "device only". It gets rid of google play services draining your battery completely.

Greenifying play services can get messy - I've lost the ability to download apps to the phone from the play store Web interface, broken Android Device Manager's remote locate feature, and broke location reporting and history. If you don't care about any of those aspects of play services then greenify won't be an issue

Where are you seeing this "device only" setting?

Oops. Samsung changed the name. It's called "GPS only". It's in location>mode.
