    So that there is no misunderstanding, when you say that "everything" is fast except app download, are you saying that Web surfing, downloading files such as .pdf, music downloads, etcetera are all very speedy via Wi-Fi? If so, are the apps that are downloading slowly in conjunction with setting up your iPhone 5 from a previous backup from a previous i-device?

    Since you can't exchange it for at least a month (I'm assuming there's no Apple Store nearby), I would connect it to your computer and reset it as new again via iTunes.

    Google's DNS uses both of those.

    You can also use the OpenDNS at 208.67.220.200 or 208.67.222.222.

    Changing dns to local dns(searched using namebench) fixed for me
    Also got a fix for wifi turning off automatically
    Just turn off mobile data when using wifi
    It wont disconnects after that...
