Default WiFi issues

Hi everyone. I've got the G906S also and can confirm that it's been working fine on Vodafone UK too. Only issue I have with the phone is some rather shocking WiFi range issues. Has by far and away the best connection on the .11ac when within ten or so feet with direct line of sight (800+Mbps), but once an object gets in the way or I move the phone further away it instantly drops to .11n and only at around 50~60Mbps. Has anyone experienced any such issues? I have a Galaxy S4 and a Galaxy Tab S too and they are maintaining their .11ac connection for way longer (around 200Mbps and 500Mbps respectively when the S5 LTE-A drops out)? Not the end of the world with regards to internet as 60Mbps is quite adequate, but I distribute a lot of my music and photos across multiple devices from my NAS and this would be severely affected.

Was hoping it was flaky software that may get fixed (official or custom ROM) rather than a faulty module or antennas...

That's strange. My wifi range seems to be on par as the S5 Active and S4 Active I had previously. Works about 50 feet outside through concrete walls for me.

I am out of town this week with no access to my PC. I can put together a flashable file next week for you. What version do you want? G906S or G906K?

@miscom as i know , G906S will not show H, H+ whenever u r connected to HSPA...it shows only 3G.. can you try to decompile Systemui.apk and go to res/value and edit bools.xml as below

<bool name="config_hspa_data_distinguishable">true</bool>
<bool name="config_show4GForLTE">true</bool>

then recompile and test it ?

This will separate the HSDPA , HSPA+ with their respective icon
