Default Poor WiFi performance

I got my G Pro 2 the other day and have noticed after messing with it for a few hours that the WiFi performance is slow and the signal not as good as my other devices. I get around 10 Mbps on my other 3 devices, on the LG I struggle to get 5mbps. I tested it after I kept waiting for pages to load and would have to select the page again and it would work straight away. It's like WiFi just hangs. Anyone having this issue? I disabled battery saving and stop scanning for new networks but it didn't make a difference.

Another problem I get is if I switch phone off and back on again, auto brightness unchecks itself and vibrate on touching screen turns itself on, even though I unchecked it.

Neither of your two issues should be occurring, I most certainly don't have them on my device. Have you tried a factory reset?

Just tried it and it hasnt made a difference, I did a full factory refresh too. Its the wifi thing thats annoying me the most. Ill try using another router and see if that makes a difference.

What are your opinions on the LG browser vs the Chrome browser? Ill miss the swiping back and forward a page gestures in the iphone, I thought android did that too, but it doesnt look like it does.

I've never been a fan of the chrome browser but plenty are so try for yourself and see. On the stock browser there is a number in the top right which is how many pages that you have open. Touch this and you can swipe between them.
Look on the bright side, at least now when you open a web page, you will be able to see, it unlike on the iPhone.

Have you checked whether your phone is connecting to 2.4 or 5Ghz wifi? The 5Ghz makes quite a big difference with mine, but it's not always obvious which one your phone is using...

Hi,

Tthe first thing that i tested on this device is the speed. Sorry to say, but i think you are one of the few people who might have received a defected piece. I have tested this device and after a lot of research I've planned to buy one...(between LG G Pro 2 and a Note 3). Internet speed (rather app response speed) is much better compared to other phones(mainly Note 3) I am somewhat (personally) against Samsung. However, The LG G Pro 2 does not disappoint when it comes to speed. Try a factory reset or try upgrading your system. Kind of sure it might work....

All the best...
