Should take all of three minutes to to some testing. Let us know the results.

Yeah hi, if I haven't mentioned before I've already tested both devices and the nexus 7 actually had a 15% better signal than nexus 5 while testing with WiFi analyser

15% doesn't seem like anything to worry about. You could try forcing the correct WiFi frequency (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) on your phone to see if that helps at all.
