Here are the advanced options on my router. Any suggestions on what else to tinker with? Someone suggested actually turning off beamforming, which didn't change anything.

Frequency 5Ghz
Enable Radio Yes
Enable wireless scheduler No
Set AP Isolated No
Roaming assistant disabled
Enable IGMP Snooping disabled
Multicast Rate(Mbps) auto
Preamble Type long
AMPDU RTS enable
RTS Threshold 2347
DTIM Interval 3
Beacon Interval 100
Enable TX Bursting enabled
Enable WMM APSD enabled
Optimize AMPDU aggregation disabled
Optimize ack suppression disabled
802.11ac Beamforming enabled
Universal Beamforming enabled
Tx power adjustment 150mW (also tried up to 200, the max)
Preamble Type - changing to short should get better BW, not by a lot but some.
Beamforming should be fine either way. Most the newer 802.11ac stuff has it properly finally.

Beyond this though you can't get too much more out of a cell phone. Due to it being a cell phone the tx power on it alone is going to be limited. A laptop has the ability to use much more power thus faster rates.
Link rates are almost always useless though, they give you a very rough idea of signal strength/quality but far from a true reading.

I would say you're probably at the limits of the phone CPU and power wise.

Wow ! DL Speed?! That's freakin' awesome!
Great ! You guys are very fortunate to have that kind of internet connection DL Speed.

Here in the Philippines, We only have a maximum internet connection of 10-15 Mbps that is for commercial or business type connection $140 - $170. 3-5 Mbps around $75 - $130 for residential use. It really depends on the ISP(s). It's so unfortunate and saddening to know that the connections they are providing which really cost so expensive are definitely from either Sprint or AT&T which we all know that these two ISP Sprint/AT&T are the best when it comes to Internet Connection and also known for the reliable and cheap plans/offers. Hopefully AT&T and Sprint have their own branch or company here in the Philippines.
