Xperia SP faulty wifi indicator + wrong wifi indication
This morning I was investigating the common wifi issue on our phones. We all know some devices have this issue.
I did a small research with the app Wifi Analyzer and I found this small "bug"..
In systemUI (statusbar) you have the indictors for wifi, nfc, bluetooth, mobile network, time.
When you connect to wifi you get an ammount of bars. I discoverd the following:
(please focus on the statusbar)
Both phones use 4 bars (dot included) to indicate the wificonnection
First picture is from my Samsung Galaxy S Plus Running latest Stock Gingerbread 2.3.6
The second picture is from Xperia SP running latest stock 12.0.A.2.254 (non rooted)
BOTH PHONES WERE ON THE TABLE APROX 2 METER FROM OUR WIRELESS ROUTER!
For some unknow reason the indictator tells a diffrent story than the app Wifi Analyzer..
To be honest i think we all get fooled here. Both phones are having (in my case) a decent but not perfect connection and my Sony still thinks it is a crappy one. ( The option avoid bad connections is off in my case)
So perhaps this is also a bug in Sony roms?
