Samsung Galaxy S2 – Slow WiFi – Slow Wireless (Wi-Fi)
I have just purchased my Samsung Galaxy S2 Android phone, it is an update from my HTC Desire. I must say this is a truely awesome device. From the moment you open the box you just can’t put it down. I did notice however that the Wi-Fi indicator was only showing one bar where as my Desire always showed full strength in the house.
After trawling the web there are quite a few reports of the above issue, so, I decided to run some in-depth test, my final thoughts are that there is not anything wrong with the actual speed throughput over WLAN it seems to be that the onscreen indicator is reporting the wrong strength.
When I ran the test throughout the house the HTC & the Samsung were pulling through the same data rates even though the HTC was showing full signal strength and the Samsung Galaxy S2 was only showing one bar.
I have sent in an email to Samsung reporting my findings so lets see if it gets fixed in a future update.
