Did the WiFi signal improve after OOS 4.5.10 on the OnePlus 5? What is it like now?

I want to buy the OnePlus 5. I've read excellent reviews so far, but when I clicked on the WiFi-signal thread, people said that the OnePlus 5 WiFi reception was really bad...

Is this true? What's it like after you updated to OOS 4.5.10?

And also, is it smart to buy this phone? (considering the WiFi-connection problems)

I've never had problems with WiFi either. Some people also complain about horrible GPS. I was wary when I read that but so far no problems with GPS either. I previously owned a Pixel XL and I think you get way more bang for your buck with the OnePlus 5. If you aren't one of those people who gets new phones frequently I also suspect that the OnePlus will last longer than the Pixel XL because it runs at least 20F cooler even though it has a more powerful processor. Google phones and heat haven't been a good combination over the last few years.

The one thing that isn't so good about the OnePlus is the camera app--especially in low light. But you can always use a ported Pixel camera app to take low light pictures.

I have a problem with wifi , this is the unique problem with this smartphone , but i have also with 4.5.8 .
wifi works. but it happens that suddenly it starts to work badly, slow to load pages etc, then recover and work well. I hope they will solve it.
